This magnificent old boozer is London’s last surviving galleried coaching inn, dating from 1677 (after a fire destroyed it the year before) and mentioned in Dickens’ Little Dorrit . It is on the site of the Tabard Inn, where the pilgrims in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales gathered before setting out (well lubricated, we suspect) on the road to Canterbury, Kent.

The huge courtyard full of picnic tables fills up on balmy evenings.
