A Grade II listed public house, it was rebuilt in 1667 following the Great Fire of 1666. It is only a short stroll down Fleet Street from St Paul's Cathedral.
We love old pubs, this one lays claim to be among London's oldest. Proudly displaying the year 1667 in the pub's signage, it is said to have been rebuilt in the year following the Great Fire of 1666.
The entry to this historic pub is relatively obscured from the main view along Fleet Street. It would be all too easy to walk by and miss sharing a pint with friends today as a number of historic figures might have done in centuries past. It is said that Charles Dickens and Mark Twain frequented the establishment.
While accessible on foot from either of Blackfriar's or St Paul's Underground Stations, it might most easily be found by walking west along Fleet Street from St Paul's Cathedral, sticking to the north side of the road. The entryway from Fleet itself is somewhat easy to miss, so keep an eye out in the neighbourhood of Wine Office Court.
