Lamb & Flag information
Pocket-sized Lamb & Flag is brimful of charm and history, squeezed into an alley (where poet John Dryden was mugged in December 1679) on the site of a pub that dates to at least 1772. Rain or shine, you’ll have to elbow your way to the bar through the merry crowd drinking outside. Inside are brass fittings and creaky wooden floors.
A few centuries ago, the pub was called The Bucket of Blood for its bare-knuckle fighting. The main entrance is on top of a tiny cobbled street, but you can also reach it from the backstreet donkey path called Lazenby Crt that’ll transport you to Victorian England. First Sunday of the month is jazz night.
