Another interesting old pub which is well described below. My pint of Proper Job was fine.
Well worth a visit.

I had basically the same experience and same beer choice as Will - I went for a half of Landlord in a dimpled mug which was ok.I didn’t like the pub much at all though. snooty, pompous, miserable service, just not my kind of place at all really. the highlight of my visit was the codgers next to me trying to guess the nationality of the waitress and possibly offending her...

Third and last of my three pub crawl of the ancient taverns of Fleet Street, this was easily the best. While the Tipperary and the Old Bell were rather quiet and low key, this one was vibrant and clearly popular with a young crowd of cosmopolites. The decorative features are impressive and lit by discreet lighting. The bar has three hand pumps, with two Trumans beers and Timothy Taylor Landlord. I went for a half of Trumans Runner 4%, which was very bland, especially in comparison with the strong bitter I'd had a few doors along, or perhaps just very bland; at least I didn't have to twist anyone's arm to get a full glass, and the price was £2.15, so slightly cheaper than either the Tipperary or the Old Bell, though only by a few pence.

The highlight of this pub's architectural features was the barrel vault ceiling with a fantastic relief of cherubim framing a portrait of Mr Punch himself. At ground level, this is a very well presented pub, with tables, some of them with reserved signs on, and low seating around the walls, and higher tables in front of the bar counter, which has a brown marble top. The lack of seating didn't bother me as I was only stopping for a quick beer before my train to Luton, and anyway I was pleased to discover a hook under the bar counter on which I was able to suspend my shoulder bag while writing a few notes. I can't say for sure I'll be back, but if I'm in the area again I'll certainly bear this one in mind.
