About the Pub

This pub, rebuilt shortly after the Great Fire of London, is located down a narrow alley off Fleet Street. Its famous alleyway side entrance is in Wine Office Court. Atmospheric front bar (which boasts a roaring fire in winter) but many other drinking areas, both old and recent, on three levels. It has many alleged associations with London characters of the past and is a much promoted tourist destination in its own right.
