Metropolitan (Greene King)

About the Pub

Opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, a splendid facade leads to a redecorated dark wooden floored and panelled interior, with a good range of real ales and an interesting menu.

A tavern was said to have been built on the site in 1723 but the Tudor style frontage dates only from an 1898 rebuild. The old pub sign (seen in our 2013 side alley picture) showed George III: however the pub is believed to be named after a former landlord and reference to royalty has been removed from the current signage.

The bar extends most of the length of the interior, with some partitioned seating areas opposite and a further area of tables and chairs at the back. The Dining Room upstairs is generally used for functions or private dining.

An interesting range of real ales is usually offered, along with a menu of pub classics "with a modern twist", usually including a steak and ale suet pudding complete with oysters, once a favourite in these parts when oysters provided inexpensive protein to pad out the beef! Note that post-pandemic, ale range may be adjusting to footfall and will be reduced at certain times.
