Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese
Lonely Planet review for Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese
The entrance to this historic pub is via a narrow alley off Fleet St. Locals over its long history have included Dr Johnson, Thackeray and Dickens. Despite (or possibly because of) this, the Cheshire feels today like a bit of a museum piece, and a fairly shabby one at that, with sawdust on the floors and a not inconsiderable smell in its warren of bars now that the cigarette smoke has disappeared. Nevertheless, it’s one of London’s most famous pubs and it’s well worth popping in for a pint.
