Another great pub in the St. Paul's/Bank area. My friends and I slipped in today for a quick pint and to warm up after yet another brutally cold January day. The pub is cute and cozy and the drinks were more than reasonable - in fact, they charged us less than what the menu listed. It was nice to see a pub open in that area on a Saturday and I'll definitely keep it in mind in the future.more
We came here for drinks and Were nicely surprised as we have been to 3 other Nicholson's pubs by which we were dissapointed. Ye Olde Watling has nice selections of wines and cask ales. I had the Sauvignon Blanc by Oyster Bay and my boyfriend had 13 Guns (Ale) and both of us were very pleased. Will definitely come back for more.more

I think that may be due to the fact that...more
BE CAREFUL ON THE STAIRS DOWN TO THE LOOS! I once watched in absolute horror as my poor (sober) sister tumbled down them right in front of me and there was NOTHING I could do about it. I still have nightmares about that.
This place gets absolutely packed on a warm Friday evening, and spills out into the narrow pedestrianised streets around it. Unfortunately there is no control on smoking...more
