Your author visited last week, and despite the busy pavement outside, it wasn't hard to find a seat inside to sample one of up to eight real ales, sourced from breweries around the UK and displayed on a blackboard next to the bar.

It is a free house, and that is always a bonus in your author's view as it gives the owners a bit more flexibility in what they do with it. Now, according to fancyapint, it is in the hands of the people run The Bell on Cannon Street and the Wheatsheaf in Borough Market.
