Brainy Pool left this review about The Seven Stars

Well described below and with no changes since, it remains a bit of an eccentric classic. Decked out like a French bistro but the atmosphere is classic pub, including the mixture of irritating local student clientele. Wouldn’t fancy the ‘trip’ to the toilets after a few too many pints. Quality Adnams ales.

Now this is a special pace, vying for being London’s oldest pub - whilst the frontage may bear the date 1602, the building itself is likely to date from the 1680s. Tucked away off the main drag this is the wig's pub given the location behind the Royal Courts of Justice (indeed, there are some sirrup examples in a glass case). It’s a small, shallow, cosy/cramped and atmospheric little poke over three small rooms. Décor notes; French bistro style green & white tablecloths, wood burner, some antique shop ephemera (eg cinema posters for long forgotten movies) and the loud haaww of public schoolboys who are now employed by the nearby chambers. Three cask; I had a fair half of Broadside (NBSS 3) imbibed in a laid-back atmosphere - the barman excepted who seemed harassed (by having to serve, by the looks of it) and grumpy, a common theme from other reviews around the web. I’d make an effort to get back here again – though seating is very much at a premium so timing is key. GBG24 listed.

The Seven Stars was my main reason for visiting London as it is supposedly the oldest London pub. It is small and quirky pub with an eccentric landlady and resident cat. Plenty of interesting items on the walls and an interesting menu. The stairs up to the toilet are not for the faint hearted!
3 beers on when I called and my Ghost Ship was fine. Glad to have finally visited and I'd happily call again.
