La définition d’un trou perdu...mais en pleine ville. Complètement soustrait au regard urbain, l’ambiance y est spéciale. Ses couloirs extérieurs briquelés et le pub lui-même sont remplies d’une vie incessante. La définition même du club social c’est le Ye Olde Mitre tavern.

An old and one of the best hidden pubs in London. A tine little pub gem. Great ambiance, no argue about that! You can feel the history while you enjoy a well kept cask ale. (Visited February 28th 2014)

Again this is one of those pub which you must visit for it’s great building and location. One of the very few pubs that you’ll find in alley ways in London. Selection however is quite disappointing and nothing more interesting than some comerical lagers.

Yet another London iconic pub in this area! Oozes with history. Beers usually good quality but from the usual "safe" breweries. Worth visiting for the pub more than the beers.

very nice pub full of character ,a pub like the pubs used to be , central location but quite difficult to find .. not a great selection but this place does not need it you don.t come in here for trying something you never had before, but for the pub itself ..obviously you get a proper pint of real ale with deuchers often on tap .. good the toasties too ... great old fashioned pub !!

I thought Brussels had the monopoly on the best bars down alleys, but London is catching up fast in my estimation. This is a lovely little place tucked away from any prying eyes and far from the madening crowds of tourist London.
Busy, but friendly place, bar staff chatty, as were the locals. Beer quality was good and served without fuss. Adnams beers at all times and on my visit Dark Star had a beer on pull too.
Quaint but not cheesy, this is a proper old pub with proper old customers. Some pubs have character and some have characters that use them, this has both!
Now I know where it actually is, it will become a regular venue when in London (closed at weekends).

A little bit of Cambridgeshire in olde Laandaan town. Worth seeking out, but not easily found. Walk up Hatton Gardens and about 100 yds on your right there is an alleyway, where this pub sits at the bottom.
This hideaway quality permeates its very existance, it is almost like a private place for those who know, so we make no loud noises and don’t shout about it too much.
When I last went (29/12) I noticed it seemed to be Fullers owned (was this always so??). Therefore your choice is limited to their range (which is ok, not a great fan) Deuchers and one guest. Therefore, for such a small selection, but more for the lack of rotation, its scores low.
Otherwise, summon up the courage, banish all thoughts of the Ripper and Dickensian darkness, and explore a great little pub, which is as charming as it is welcoming.

Atmospheric Pub down an alley off Hatton Garden Jewellery Quarter. Absolutely rammed on a busy Friday night but still relatively easy to get served, although by an East European lad who clearly as not sure what he was doing. Quite pricey, the most expensive round of the night. We made it to the upstairs room, but still had to stand, full of suits and city types, nothing wrong in that. Friendly and warm, the Gents are a nightmare though, particularly on a busy night. We will return although it shuts at weekends.

Love this pub. Beer range is average, but just a small little boozer in a weird location with a lot of history to it.

2010-08. Visited on a slow Wednesday afternoon last July, this pub feels so cramped and tiny that it’s certainly not for the claustrophobic. Friendly smiling staff served us our halves and we rested in one entire room (that held one table); there were two others. The staircase up to the ladies is narrow and pokey but adds character. Beer selection is limited but seems fresh; There were six casks were available: Adnams, Fullers, Deuchars, and Gales. The experience is quite authentic and worth the visit, especially if you were in the neighbourhood. (5/10/5/NA/10/15) 70%
