About the Pub

This basement bar, just off the Strand and Fleet Street, is run by the City Pub Group and continues their development of micro-brew pubs, joining the Good Beer Guide-listed Bath Brew House and the Cambridge Brew House.

The 5-barrel plant is visible from the bar, which is a single room with minimal decor, novel lighting and schoolroom style furnishings, with some tables set aside for dining. It's generally quiet during the day though it does get noisy of an evening.

"Essex Street Brewery" ales include regular and one-off brews. There's also a wall of 14 craft keg beers, and a big selection of canned and bottled beers.

The Temple Brew House was beer pub/bar of the year winner in the John Smith's Great British Pub of the Year 2017 awards.

Daly's Wine Bar adjacent to the Temple Brew House, and celebrating its 26th anniversary in February 2018, is under the same ownership and usually serves a couple of the Essex Street Brewery ales.

Historic Interest

The area was formerly Essex House and its grounds, and re-developed in the 1670s and 1680s by entrepreneur Nicholas Barbon. Little from that era survives, with embankment and building in subsequent centuries. Note though that the basement is said to be the original street level.
