City history lives on in the traffic-free alleys behind St Michael Cornhill, where walking tours and thirsty suits descend on this venerable Shepherd Neame pub – known to one and all as the Jampot.
The current building dates from 1869 and inside it’s a dark Victorian mix of embossed ceilings and wooden partitions – although its real origins go way back to Samuel Pepys’ day, when it was
London’s first coffee house. Nowadays beer, not coffee, is the drink of choice: choose from Spitfire, Bishop’s Finger or Whitstable Bay Pale Ale on tap or slake your thirst with an Oranjeboom Extra
Cold lager. Wine selections are chalked-up, while solid sustenance comes from hot or cold sandwiches, hot dogs and sharing boards at the bar. Alternatively, head downstairs to Todd’s Wine Bar for
more filling international fare.
