Friendly and welcoming atmosphere at The Viaduct Tavern with free wifi. We're right in the heart of London, near St Paul's, surrounded by some its most historic landmarks. We are a traditional Gin Palace with an ever increasing variety of Gins.
My wife and I are in London for the first time. Today it was cold and raining. After visiting a few indoor venues we needed to get off the street to warm up. We found this tavern as it was in the area we were...More
Sadly was only a brief visit with colleagues, but the look & feel & history of the place is amazing. Sorry I didn’t get a picture of the amazing frescos on the walls.
A great array of ales on draft, proper old skool ‘boozer’ feel...More
We had a great time at a Halloween Seance evening in the cellar; the staff were friendly, told great ghost stories and served tasty gin cocktails. They do experience evenings for their 'prison' cellar occasionally, so make sure you go, it's an interesting piece of...More

Thank you very much for your honest review. We hope to welcome you back again anytime soon!
Great little pub with history. Kindly allowed us to see the old cells in the basement (spooky) and looked after our bags for free whilst we spent an hour in the Old Bailey. Can thoroughly recommend the toasties after a morning of evidence.
Extremely rude staff, disgusting treatment at the bar. This establishment needs to seriously upgrade the people it employs, as it is damaging the Fuller's brand. I will never return to this pub, and will think twice about entering any other Fuller's.
This was unexpectedly open on the Sunday of the London Marathon. It was a great day, with the manager and staff generally open to showing folk around the Newgate Cells downstairs in the basement. Newgate, for the uninitiated, was the prison point, of the six...More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
