Located through a small courtyard, this is a two-roomed pub with a rather unusual dip tunnel linking the two bars. Whilst the place looks alright from the outside the interior is little to shout about. Six pumps in the RHS bar with 3x GK, 2x Wimbledon and what looked like a house beer of unknown provenance. Served by a cheery barman but unfortunately my Wimbledon Common was well past its best (NBSS 1.5). Popped into the other bar which was smaller with two of GK ales and the house beer at the bar. A big disappointment, a better operator with a bit of gumption could make this a must-do pub. 5.5

A courtyard bar hidden away down a side street,The main bar is modern, clean and smart with some high seating around the outside edges,there are six hand pumps in here ,only three beers on, on a Tuesday afternoon,Southwark Bankside Blonde and Bermondsy Bitter along with Trumans Swift. There is another bar area to your left through an open doorway down and back up a couple of steps, in here is some comfortable sofa style seating and a further small area for dining, I discovered three more handpulls in here, Greene King IPA and another Trumans Swift with one blank. Back in the main bar to your right are some stairs leading down to an air conditioned basement games room with two pool tables, the toilets are to the rear of this.There is also plenty of outside seating to the front of the pub,well used on my visit with plenty of suits in evidence. Not a place I would linger too long but certainly worth a look.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Tea Warehouse

Converted as the name suggests, and set back from the road by a courtyard (very busy on a Thursday after work). Alehouse-style bar, with indications of another room or bar further on (not visited) plus the East India Room downstairs with two pool tables. Efficient bar staff. Six handpumps, offering the 'house' Old Tea Clipper Ale, Greene King IPA, Truman's Swift, Sambrook's Pumphouse Pale, Windsor & Eton Windsor Knot and London Fields Black Path porter (£4.00). Part of the Metropolitan Pub Company chain.

Located in EC3 just inside the original Square Mile, The Old Tea Warehouse was converted into a pub in 1996 from an East India Tea Company Warehouse. You approach through a courtyard into the pub outside patio drinking area which is equipped with standing and seating areas under large green Jumbrellas.
Inside the bar area is a modern light wood décor with wooden tables and chairs.
Downstairs there is a larger space with big comfy settees. Nice enough place to sit, except for the fact that you are passed by a steady stream of people back and forth to the toilets.
There is also a second ground level room, but this doubles as a function room and has always been used for city firm gatherings during my visits.
It’s a GK house with the standard Greene King fair of the ubiquitous IPA and Speckled Hen. But they do usually have a seasonal beer on from one of the GK stables on to supplement this.
Due to its location it does tend to get packed out at lunchtime and early evening and on these days the outside patio area is the best bet.

The Old Tea Wharehouse is tucked away in a courtyard just off leadenhall street.
This is quite a large pub which is a good job as it gets very busy with suits,there is an outside drinking area in the courtyard and once inside there was one large room that i noticed this had bare boards and large chunky wooden tables,the room was very busy on my visit.

Pub visited 21/8/2008
This is a Greene King tied house and there were three real ales on the bar i had a drink of GK IPA and this was nothing special there was also Abbot and Old Speckled Hen.
This is not really my sort of pub,but it does make up for the loss of some of the older pubs in this area.
