Big bustling Fullers pie-and-ale pub with impressive Victorian façade and interior, and a small back terrace; own theatre

To find this extraordinary place, just head for the cathedral as the pub is opposite. It's all impressively flamboyant: chandeliers hang from the soaring pink and gilt ceiling, gently illuminated busts line the top of the ornately plastered walls and there's a splendid cupola above the centre of the room. Photographs of the historic building's past line the walls; there's also a big dining balcony reached up a grand sweeping staircase. The place is packed to the gunnels at peak times, but efficient staff manage to remain friendly and helpful, serving Fullers ESB, HSB, London Pride, Olivers Island and a guest such as Fixed Wheel Mild Concussion on handpump, 17 wines by the glass and 36 gins; background music. The small and colourful back terrace has nicely quirky seats and tables and heaters. Most nights there's something on in the purpose-built, first-floor theatre and you can book a two-course pre-theatre meal in advance.
