The Old Bank Of England


This Italian style building was built in 1888 and was formerly the Law Courts branch of the Bank of England. It became a pub in 1995. Fullers have spent a lot of time and money redecorating this building and the result is a lavish, extravagant interior. Bar food is served but there is also a restaurant which serves food between 11am and 9pm. They can cater for private parties of up to 200 people. It gets very busy at lunchtime and in the evenings.

Looking for a gentleman's bar - all dressed up? This is your place gentleman and ladies ‼ An old bank into the 70's, where the clocks are frozen in time 14 minutes past the hour to a time when the last transaction occurred in the banking days . There's a new owner in town . more

Fleet Street. City Of London. As a tourist, I would much rather spend a day wandering down here and taking in the history than most of Westminster, just the buzz of 'real London' is worth it tenfold. You won't find many tourists down here in comparison, and you could literally spend the entire afternoon looking at buildings and popping into pubs between St Clement Danes and Farringdon... more

A lot of Fuller's on tap and nice decor. Given the location of the area it is a little bit pricey (but in line with other pubs). more

One of the Fuller's kitchen pubs. 8 of their ales and beers on tap. Slightly above average bar food. Poached egg was overcooked, but they fixed it; really made the dish. Good service. Young staff. more

I think this place is cool to visit once for fun. To see how a bank became a pub. Pretty quiet and spacious. more
