The entrance to this historic pub is via a narrow alley off Fleet St. Over its long history, locals have included Dr Johnson, Thackeray and Dickens. Despite (or possibly because of) this, the Cheshire can feel a bit like a museum. Nevertheless it’s one of London’s most famous and historic pubs and well worth popping in for a pint.

The original pub was sent skywards during the Great Fire of London and rebuilt. Its vaulted cellars are said to belong to a 13th-century Carmelite monastery that once stood on the site.
