Drink in London's Oldest Irish Pub

The Tipperary, at 66 Fleet Street, is London's oldest Irish Pub, originally named 'The Boar’s Head' records show that it certainly dates back as far as 1605, and possibly longer. The pub became an Irish pub around 1700, and was apparently the first pub outside of Ireland to serve draught Guinness.

Oddly, it was actually renamed The Tipperary after the First World War, in a nod to the song, "It’s a long way to Tipperary..." which many regulars had sung in the trenches.
