Situated opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, this makes a great stop for anyone awaiting the outcome of their appeal; will they be there at drinking-up time? Or doing time?
I came here once before about 20 years ago. It’s a good example of brewers’ Tudor, dating from a rebuild of 1898. The interior has obviously been done up to include compulsory Farrow & Ball colour schemes, Victorian lighting, high and low conventional furniture; all a bit predictable, apart from the multiple air-conditioning boxes fixed to the ceiling. Customers seem to be barristers’ clerks, squawking women, whilst journalists use the place during the day. The most interesting item is the ornate bar back with its carved Corinthian capitals. Food is served, much of it to be found on my table. The women’s lavs were out of order, so one of the squawking women decided it would be fun to use the gent’s, which is definitely out of order.
The ale choice was thin, with five unused pumps, then GK IPA, Landlord (reversed) and Old Speckled Hen at £2.45 a half and ok.
This was never a great pub, though it’s better than I recall, but with the lame – and ultimately predictable – ale choice, food remains on tables, loud customers and women in the loo, it’ll be at least another 20 years before I return. In any event, the fabulous Seven Stars is on the north side of the RCJ.

Handy for the Royal Courts of Justice. Quite a long narrow interior with a restaurant upstairs. 9 real ales and "craft keg" served.

Unexpected revisit found 9 ales on and a decent spread. My Portobello Market Porter wasn’t much to write home about though, perhaps it was toward the end of the barrel and I was unlucky.

Situated opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, this is an attractive Tudor style frontage that’s probably somewhat more modern in construction. A long narrow bar inside, knocked-through but a decent little rear area with a nice fireplace looked inviting though it was too packed to find a seat. Dark, lots of leaded windows and mock Tudor innards. A morass of pumps but half were off, leaving a small selection of Portobello brewery ales. My Porter was in decent shape. A lot of punters tend to spill out into the long side alley adjacent which is where we ended up. Not a bad little stop and with the Edgar Wallace situated at the end of the aforementioned alleyway you can do a good double-header for very little effort. Rated 7
