Affectionately known as the Jampot, this oak-panelled boozer has a picaresque history dating back to 1652 – when it was a coffee house for Restoration bigwigs including Samuel Pepys. Nowadays, iPad-tapping City suits and camera-toting tourists mingle happily in the snug bar with its embossed ceiling and original Victorian cooker (once used for roasting coffee beans). Pints of Shepherd Neame Spitfire or Bishop's Finger go down well and there's a fair choice of wines by the glass, along with basic pub grub – think sarnies and easy-to-hold snacks such as lamb and mint burgers or ‘gourmet' hot dogs. For something more substantial, head downstairs to Todd's Wine Bar, where the menu promises sharing boards, piri-piri chicken skewers, fishcakes and other international standards.
