The Old Dr Butlers Head sits minutes from Moorgate or Bank tube stations and looks like the interior hasn't changed in 200 years or more. Downstairs is the pub serving an array of real ales and good pub food and on the first floor is...More

A regular business meeting place, close to Moorgate station, provides the best steak & kidney pud I have eaten. Beer well kept and lovely staff. Excellent fruit crumble but loses a star as no Spotted Dick on current menu. Not for those who want to...More

A good oldfashioned pub with good pub-grub for lunch. It's in the City, so closed in the evening. Typical lunchtime pub with good ales

The name alone has to make you want to go in! It's a very cool older-looking pub that's very close to the business district of London Wall. The smoking is no longer allowed indoors. This place had great sandwiches for lunch and was absolutely packed...More
