Fodor's Review

The City of London's oldest tavern and chop house was founded in 1757 and is as every bit as raucous now as the day it opened. Approached via a cobbled Dickensian alley off Cornhill, it draws those who revel in the boarding school surroundings and are eager to down oodles of claret and English tavern-style grub—think potted shrimps, steak-and-kidney pie, grilled chump chops, and pots of stewed cheese. Desserts are schoolboy favorites like spotted dick and custard, and shared oak bench stalls, green cushions, and merry service all add to the charm.
