Having a pint in historic pubs is easily one of the best pastimes on a trip to London. This is well-kept establishment with comfortable seating and standing, tucked away off an alley.

Hi Susan, some pubs allow under 18's in. As we here at Ye Olde Mitre are so small without a kitchen we are over 18's only. Many thanks
