Historic yet unpretentious, full of character and atmosphere, with six real ales and pubby food

Thankfully, nothing changes at this characterful old tavern, which is always packed out. The more spartan front room leads into a cosy, atmospheric, low-ceilinged back bar with high-backed black settles and an open fire. Fullers ESB, London Pride, Olivers Island and Gales Seafarers plus guests such as Anstey Ale Daydreamer, Dark Star Hophead and St Austell Tribute on handpump, as well as 12 wines by the glass and 12 malt whiskies. The upstairs Dryden Room is often less crowded and has more seats (though fewer beers). There's a lively and well documented history: Poet John Dryden was nearly beaten to death by hired thugs outside, and Charles Dickens made fun of the Middle Temple lawyers who frequented it when he was working in nearby Catherine Street.
