    Not hard to find as there's a sign revealing the alleyway & pub posted on the main street. Service is stern & curt yet accommodating. A lot of suits mixed with tourists. Surprising amount of space.

    One of the oldest ones, since Elizabeth I era.

    Worth going out if your way to track this place down. Go early because it gets packed, and scope out the upstairs for hidden seats. Best alleyway drinking we found on our trip.

    One of my fav pubs in all of London. Tucked away in a side street. Gets packed around 5p. Grab a table in the back or upstairs.

    Not easy to find - via a narrow lane off Hatton Garden. Dates back to 1546. Good selection of ales.

    One of only a few Fullers pubs in London I enjoy, this place is a lovely old building, unpretentious atmosphere and super friendly staff. Basic and very cheap bar snack selection, a refreshing change.

    Buy your drinks before you head up to the upstairs area. No bar upstairs and the narrow stairwell is a real hard squeeze to get down.

    This spooky ancient tavern is where Dan Brown would buy a beer if he was in town. Shadowy alleys lead into a medieval courtyard where a sign reveals Ye Olde Mitre was built by Bishop Goodrich in 1546. Read more

    Until the 1970's, Both the license of the premises and the Police for this pub had to come from Cambridge. The City of London and its Police had no jurisdiction here.

    The cherry tree preserved in this pub was once the dividing line between the estates of the Bishop of Ely and Queen’s favourite Sir Christopher Hatton – famous feuding neighbours of Tudor London.
