Among "London's Oldest" claims lays Simpson's Tavern as the "oldest chophouse in London" circa 1757. As with many other such surviving venues of the era it's actually hidden down a little alleyway with an address in the half-figures. Quite fitting for the historic financial district!
You probably don't need an excuse to stop for a quick drink during your exploration of London, but if you've got more time to explore a historic address with the offer of great British food you should take it.
Planning your trip
Simpson's Tavern touts their own pork crackling and hosts a number of traditional events such as Christmas celebrations. There's also a curious trope in The Stewed Cheese Challenge, partly tongue in cheek but very real cheese eating competition.
When you should go
Regular hours include a breakfast hour from 8am to 10:30am Tuesdays through Fridays with dining rooms from noon to 3:30pm. Bars open from 11:30am, the venue isn't open during weekends.
What else you might need
The venue isn't huge and it can be popular with the local bankers, you may not need a reservation but you should aim to arrive earlier to avoid disappointment. Events require ticketing.
