Square Meal Review of Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese ?

Stooping to pass through the black wooden doorway of this Fleet Street legend means following in the wake of drinkers & hungry folk who have made their way here over the last five centuries. Inside, there’s a deep scent of oak, of ale & of history. A hostelry has stood on this spot since 1538, although the original was destroyed & rebuilt in 1666 after the Great Fire of London. Dr Johnson & Charles Dickens were regulars in the Cheese’s higgledy-piggledy, low-lit rooms, but now you’re more likely to rub shoulders with American tourists & local businessmen supping pints of bargain-priced Sam Smith’s beers. Many famous names have also frequented the Chop House restaurant, which dishes up old faithfuls such as steak & kidney pud, braised pheasant with bacon & celery or spotted dick with custard.

  1. Then it was on to dinner at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese on Fleet Street (they don't seem to have a website, only the G+ page). The pub is historically significant, very old (rebuilt in 1667) and is said to have been an old haunt of Charles Dickens! The beer comes from the Samuel Smith brewery and the menu is a very reasonably priced selection of pub classics; fish and chips, steak and ale pie etc. I had the lasagne (I can never say no to one) and I really enjoyed it. It was just how I wanted it to be; filling and slightly crisp at the edges. The pub has a great atmosphere; it's all higgledy piggledy stairs, spread across different levels and has all sorts of cubby holes to sit in...
