Not visited for 7 years, but a regular haunt at the time, this was a decent, carpeted backstreet boozer which one wouldn't expect to find in the heart of London's legal district. A tiny lav, carpeted, conventional furniture to the rear with some taller stuff towards the front and a very friendly and welcoming landlord. Perhaps it could have done with a lick of paint but otherwise this was a decent, simple pub.

Being flogged by Greene King as 'unviable' (as if!). Closes Feb 26th

August 2011
Popped in here on my way to the Edgar to see what I may be missing. Tucked away in a narrow courtyard away from any main rod at the edge of the Temple, the building dates from 1676. The L-shaped interior is a rather sterile affair and quite chainy, all stripped wood and neutral colours. That said, it was spik and span and there was the odd interesting touch – the intricate cornices the large curtain pulled back to divide the two dining areas and a few semi-booths. Four ales to choose from – TT Landlord, Youngs Special (or was it Ordinary?), Viking (that’s what my notes say, anyway) and Woodefords Wherry. I sampled the latter and at £3.50p/p was a bit steep but the quality was very good indeed. The menu looked reasonably priced with standard mid-range pub cuisine advertised. No world beater but a decent place that is aimed squarely at the local employees of the law firms in the vicinity. If you’re nearby, it might be worth poking your head through the door to see what’s on. Rated 6

Tucked away from the main drag the pub is now under the Greene King branding. 5 real ales and food served.
