Worth a Visit

Plenty of atmosphere in this little corner pub near St Paul's Cathedral; as name suggests, a former cockfighting venue with surviving spectators' gallery; good selection of beers such as Adnams, St Austell and Shepherd Neame, lunchtime food; open all day

On a busy Friday evening in December, squeezing into The Cockpit for a pre-dinner drink (or two) was an effort, but well worthwhile, especially for the choice of four excellent draft beers and the friendly atmosphere. It was a pleasant surprise to find it still open post-theatre on the Saturday, and it was our 'local' of choice for a weekend stay at the St Paul's YHA just around the corner.

You’d think that on one of London’s coldest days on record in 40 years, that The Cockpit would be a warm and welcoming place to come. But the staff decided to boot out a woman with a nine week old baby AFTER she had purchased a drink, simply because she had a child with her. And this is not the first time that this has happened - other friends and colleagues have reported the same thing happening. I suspect that the staff at the Cockpit should familiarise themselves with the Licensing Act 2003 before they choose to repeat this particularly nasty, self serving behaviour. Avoid this place at all costs.
