About the Pub

This venue reopened in late 2021 having been closed for over a year, but as at early July 2022 it is reported closed again. Further updates welcome.

It is a small, no-nonsense pub with wooden decor.

Historic Interest

The pub was spot-listed Grade II in December 2015, Historic England list entry no. 1431970. A pub of this name has existed on this site since at least 1791. The present small bar (with basement), 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 pub may be regularly confused (by bemused visitors) with the rather more famous Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese - which is further towards the City on Fleet Street!
