Really nice exterior and interior as described below. Not that big inside and the toilet must be fun when it’s busy.

Established by at least the late 18th century, this pub was rebuilt in its somewhat extravagant form in 1898. Grade II-listed with an Art Nouveau terra cotta and glazed tile façade, it's one of the most ornate pubs in the EC1 area.
Indeed, the fine tiles extend to the narrow interior with dark wood including bar back and pot shelf though the French zinc-topped bar is modern as is the questionable tiled ceiling.
There are some tables to the walls and dining area to the rear in what is in fact quite a small venue. It also has somewhat inadequate lavs with just one urinal behind an American-style saloon bar doors and then just one cubicle.
Ales: the standard Young's line-up, thereafter guests from the likes of Sambrook's and Truman's, served well but typically at around the £5.05 a pint mark.
Worth a look for the interior, but it's not easy to get comfortable here so it's a bit of a one-pint pony. Expensive too.

A must visit for the City Boy Breakfast. Served till 11am - think of a combo between a mixed grill and a Full English Breakfast. With a pint of Youngs Stout.

An experience that should be had by all :-)
