Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese

A cavernous pub that has entertained writers from Charles Dickens to P.G. Woodhouse. It has an open fire and there’s a deliberate absence of clocks and dim lighting to amplify the sense of a place you could lose days in.

Nearest c2c station is Fenchurch Street then a 20 minute bus ride to fleet Street

Plume of Feathers

This maritime-themed bar is the oldest pub in Greenwich and overlooks the park. Keep warm by the original claygate fireplace, or there’s the option of English and Continental dishes in the candlelit restaurant.

Nearest c2c station is Limehouse then DLR to Cutty Sark Greenwich 

The Jerusalem Tavern

A short walk from Farringdon is The Jerusalem Tavern, which has a coal-burning fire and is stocked by St. Peter’s Brewery in Suffolk which includes organic beer. It’s been a pub since the 90s but the building has been there since the 1700s.

Nearest c2c station is Liverpool street then underground to Farringdon.

Three Kings of Clerkenwell

This eccentric pub boasts a coal fire and things you don’t often see in your local, like a plaster Egyptian dog and a fibreglass rhino head. Among other drinks it offers traditional ales and upstairs is a jukebox that plays classic 45s.

Nearest c2c station is Liverpool Street then underground to Farringdon

Princess Louise Pub

The Princess Louise in Holborn is decorated with period features and has an open fire. Booth seating gives it a private feel and the absence of TV screens makes it ideal for conversation to flow with the drinks.

Nearest c2c station is Liverpool Street then central line to Holborn 

William IV

This Shoreditch pub in a Georgian building is good for roasts, real ale and some friendly competition with a selection of board games to play by the fire.

Nearest c2c station is Fenchurch Street then Northern Line from Bank to Old Street
