Late afternoon (4 ish). Very busy inside and out, mainly with city types. I sat in the main bar and “people watched”, mostly men in suits talking, some listening! Went through the side bar (Keats) on the way out - this looked more relaxed. I liked it.

Early afternoon on a Thursday and busy as would be expected for a pub in this area. Very good service from friendly bar staff. This was my first visit to this pub although I must have walked past it hundreds of times when it was a 199 house.

I notice that this pub has two entries on this website – not sure what to do about it. It is typically busy in the early evening tonight, although I find a perch in the Keats Bar.
Thornbridge / Thornbridge Hall - The January Brews4.80ExcellentA very nice, dark, un-spiced Winter Ale.

Evening visit. Shouty City types in the Globe bar, almost drowned out by the over-loud music. Rather more civilised in the Keats bar.
Tyne Bank - Silver Dollar4.90ExcellentDry, golden bitter with high hop rate.
Moor - Revival (was 3.8%)3.40GoodHazy (un-fined) gold colour. Nice fresh, crisp, light hop tastes.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in City, Central London, EC2M 6SA.

A landmark pub at the southern end of Moorgate. It has a slightly complicated history, being two pubs that have merged into one. The Globe was present by 1734 and traditionally was a Charrington’s Brewery house and usually went by the nickname “The 199”. Next door was a pub called the Swan & Hoop (possibly the birthplace of John Keats), which was renamed the Moorgate in around 1878 and later became called the ‘John Keats’. In 2007, the two pubs merged, although they almost operate still as two separate premises, with a separate feel to each bar. The combined pub became part of the Nicholson’s chain in 2010. Both bars feature a kind of Modernised-Victorian decor. Upstairs rooms also available.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 24 different beers and tried 6 of them.
