A tall, narrow building, the bar area is in effect a drinking corridor with a tessellated floor featuring a restrained shamrock pattern. Despite being an Irish pub there are hand pumps serving English beers - five pumps, two of them unclipped and one with the clip reversed, leaving two beers on from Nelson brewery in Chatham, Kent. I went for the Cat o'nine tails 4% rather than the Friggin in the riggin 4.5%, but my half was so far short of the brim that I innocently asked whether this was a lined glass; let me top that up for you, quoth the helpful server, going on to say that she always topped the beer up once it had settled. Diplomatically ignoring this half truth, I took a sip and was fairly happy with the beer's condition; the price of £2.25 was quite reasonable for London, I thought.

I didn't explore further than the ground floor bar, which has wood panelling and brewery mirrors on the walls, plus an old, varnished board advertising Suffolk Ales: "IPA, Abbot and BBA" (boring brown ale, anyone?). I overheard someone ordering a whiskey off the list to the left of the bar, who was told that not all of those listed were available. This was a pleasant bar with not many people in at the time of my visit - perhaps they work past five in this part of town? Not sure I'd be in a hurry to be back, but it makes an interesting part of a crawl of the ancient pubs hereabouts (Old Bell, Cheshire Cheese, Punch, Hoop & Grapes, for example).

A small and narrow Irish themed bar with friendly service, good mosaic tiling incorporating shamrocks and impressive mirrors opposite the long bar.Seating consists of a single table before the bar,and another in the alcove to the stairs up to the loos.Bar stools are the only real option to avoid vertical drinking.Many Irish artifacts hang on the walls and there is a good collection of Irish Whiskey water jugs and an impressive list of Irish Whiskeys.
There is a restaurant on the first floor,but this pub does have a boozer feel and a lot of punters will be drinking Guiness.There are a few handpumps offering on my trip Nelson's Trafalgar Bitter and Friggin' in the Riggin' with the other pulls unused.
It will get busy at peak times and given it's small size and limited ale options,I can't see a revisit likely despite this being one of the older pubs in The City.

This is a wonderful must-visit pub with a fantastic ornate interior well described below. It is indeed very narrow and can be extremely cramped so a long stay may not be possible.
Great Guinness of course and a very friendly barmaid complete the ensemble.
However, this place is laced with a good measure of Blarney: the pub was owned by pubco and not brewer Mooney's and upon acquisition in 1895 became known as Mooney's Irish House. It was Mooney's fourth Irish House in London so neither the first Irish bar in England nor the first to serve Guinness; the current name was adopted after 1950.
