This pub now very much up and running, and well-populated by City suits in the early evening. Again just one cask beer available tonight.
Redemption - Trinity3.00ExcellentThere may just be one beer on, but it’s an excellent one.

A ‘soft launch’ night for this forthcoming pub opening, where the builders still have work to do. Just one real available for the night, but it’s a good ‘un.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in City, Central London, EC4V 2BA.

A small, City pub that was once one of several in this area called the Three Cranes (more of a dockland reference than an ornithological or heraldic reference). In 1938, the name changed to the Hatchet when a full licence was transferred here from an old pub called the Hatchet nearby on Little Trinity Lane. It was a Charrington’s pub (as evidenced by the surviving green-panelled windows), later becoming a Greene King pub in 1993. 2016 saw a complete refurbishment of the pub and the reversion to the Three Cranes name. There are two small ground floor bars, one with a beaten metal ceiling, and a first floor dining room. Beers are served from taps set into the back wall, with two reserved for cask-conditioned beer. The pub is very handy for Mansion House tube station. Now operated by Harcourt Inns.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 2 different beers and tried both.
