Hard by the Tower of London, the Perkin Reveller’s intimate lounge bar with its handsome stained glass window offers a range of quaffs perhaps not aimed at your typical snap-happy tourist from Tallahassee – even though the cocktail list features the likes of smoked clover club and Bronx. For a more authentic Hogarthian experience, order noggin or Somerset flag punch (Chase apple gin, lemon, spices and beetroot juice) – one of several sharing bowls that also includes the Siege of Thebes. Away from gin, you might find mint julep and bloody Mary – an entirely appropriate call given the eponymous Tudor queen's harsh decrees hereabouts. Meantime draught ales are the hoppy sips of choice with snacks such as quail Scotch eggs, smoked eel fishcakes and pork crackling, as you contemplate the historic view of London olde and new from a fair-weather terrace.
