    Great range of beers and a few Jack The Ripper stories to go with them. Shame they took down the name board of the rippers victims as it named 6 people instead of 5 as it is generally told.

    Had anniversary dinner upstairs and food is interesting and high quality, service was personal and attentive. Dining room is quirky and has interesting art. Only drawback was some noisy guests.

    Nice food, but not enough of it. Couple of slices of venision, butternut squash (which was a light mouse), some more vegetables would have been enough to make it.

    Be warned, this place does not admit children, not even at midday on a Saturday. Bar staff not great at explaining the policy either, just a plain "no children allowed". Like it's a crime.

    The pub features in the movie "From Hell" (2001) and includes a scene with Inspector Abberline, played by Johnny Depp, having a drink with Mary Kelly the last victim of Jack the Ripper

    Food is ridiculously overpriced and unreasonably pretentious. I rarely leave a bad review, but this place deserves the worst of thoughts. I hope they choke on my money. P.s: waiters are really kind.

    One of the best pubs in the area for street drinking in the sun, though be prepared to be approached by many of the local characters. Oh, and don't forget to stand inside the chalk line!
