Founded in 2015, this is a Fuller's outlet with a fine view out towards the Monument, the Christopher Wren/Robert Hooke-designed edifice that commemorates the Great Fire of London, 1666. The column is 202 feet in height, the distance from the start of the fire in Pudding Lane.
There are a few metal tables outside, thereafter the place resembles an office block which indeed is what it is, situated on the lower ground floor. This explains the slightly industrial interior with no décor, concrete floor high/low tables and stools/chairs and the usual selection of Fuller's ales. Because of the hard surfaces, acoustics are very poor. Factor in the loudish music which arrives as the evening wears on and conversation becomes increasingly more difficult. On the plus side, the air-conditioning was a welcome touch on this very hot and humid day.
Ales: typical Fuller's line-up, with London Pride OK - I didn't clock the price as we were buying rounds.
I'd come here again as there's little else around, but I'd prefer to make the extra effort and leave the City behind altogether.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Hydrant

The former Fine Line has been rebranded by Fuller's as a 'Craft House & Kitchen' and the large rectangular bar has been refurbished in a semi-modern style. A few eye-catching features have been added, such as the pot-plant wall and the lighting just inside the main door. There is a mix of seating in several different areas, including a separate dining / private party area at one end of the bar as well as the mezzanine (both of which were roped off on this visit). Two banks of three handpumps on the counter, with Pride, Oliver's Island and ESB plus Butcombe Rare Breed as a guest available this time. Overall, something of an improvement over its previous incarnation as a loud 'vertical drinking' establishment, so rating upped by a point.
