What a nice surprise. We saw this pub at the end of an alley. It was a great old style pub. I did not know the history until after we went. If your in London I recommend tracking this Pub down.

Visited with friends on a bank holiday Friday. Set back a little from the main hustle and bustle. Great outside space and warmly welcomes by staff inside. Good atmosphere and beer selection. Highly recommended!
