Shepherd Neame

About the Pub

As of late Sept 2018 this pub was reported sold to Shepherd Neame; not known freehold or leasehold. SN refurbishing March 2019.

Contact details etc. now incorrect in this entry. Hours as given on the pub website may be incorrect, it has been reported closing earlier in the evening. Previous description follows.

A pub of this name has existed on this site since at least 1791. The present fascinating small bar, not far from the Temple, Aldwych and the Royal Courts of Justice, was designed by the great pub architect Nowell Parr for the Style & Winch brewery and built in 1928 in a dark Tudor style. The ground floor bar has a plethora of bric-a-brac hanging from the ceiling with old radios scattered around the shelves. There's a games room with bar billiards, shove ha'penny, darts and dominoes and a TV screen showing sports. It may be confused (by bemused visitors) with Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese - which is further towards the City on Fleet Street. The pub was spot-listed Grade II on 24 December 2015, Historic England list entry no. 1431970.
