Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Farringdon, Central London, EC1M 6DB.

High ceilinged corner pub in Cowcross Street adjacent to Farringdon station. It is an ornate, five-storey, mid-terrace building in dark brick. Present by the 1820s, the licensee of the day loaned King George IV some money to place on a bet, on security of a gold watch. As reward he was granted a license to operate as a pawnbroker, and a pawnbrokers sign hangs outside the pub to this day. Historically, this was a Charrington’s house.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 6 different beers and tried 3 of them.
