City institution hidden away on a side alley near the Royal Exchange. Great mix of people from city workers, tourists and pensioners !

Food is simple English fare. Too tip is to always order "with" - as in with a sausage on the side.

1757! How's that for being around a long time? Came here just for the experience and had a great time, some nice beer and good food. Ask for the stewed cheese, it's like Welsh Rarebit, cheese over bread, and very filling!

This place was off a little side street. Not the normal place i would go to. Ambiance was great. Waiters very attentive and quick. I had the Cottage Pie, sausage and cauliflower with cheese. Simply amazing!! Sausages in London are much better than stateside in Florida. I would have taken more with me i could have. Looking forward to going back.more

Open on the current site since 1757, this is a very traditional eatery. If you book, you eat upstairs where you sit in wooden pews on fixed tables and a cockney waitress with a flea in her ear will take your order from a menu that changes daily. Sitting there, in the few short minutes you'll be waiting for your fare to be served up, you are aware of the ghosts of city gents and banker past...more
