Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese has a real olde world feel to it, having survived through the reign of 15 monarchs. It consists of a great number of bars and dining rooms reached by a labyrinth of passages and staircases. It is decked out with a dark wooden interior. Bar food is served as well as beers, traditional ales, wines and spirits, and there is also a restaurant. They can cater for private parties of up to 120 people.

Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese London Reviews


The Best of Winter - Few things are as awesome as drinking a Sam Smith Taddy Porter at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese on a cold winter day or night. I prefer the bar on the right as you enter with the coal fire...love that smell.

A step back in time - I don't know how old this pub is, but I'm guessing very old. It's a warren like place with loads of little rooms in which to sit - although you can get lost going to the toilettes when drink - and usually quite quiet on a weeknight.

Best of all it's Sam Smith so cheap drinks ahoy!

My only warning is the cheap food (pies) is pretty grey and microwaved, but I reckon of the more expensive menu it might be better. The desserts are pretty microwaved too, but spotted dick tastes good out of a can, so we weren't complaining.

Come here to drink for cheap and go next door to Chilangos (I think it's called) for a burrito if you're hungry.

historical gem - two things about this pub are great: its a real historical pub in the City that is a marvel to visit even if just for the structure of it. it has a number of floors, narrow stair cases that can be dangerous for tall people, dining rooms, cellars, bars, and more i didn't get to see. the sheer classic London/English-ness of this place is a big part of the fun. The other thing is that its another Sam Smith pub, where beer and wine are cheap and organic giving you good value for money.
This place is great to take visitors, or even residents of London, history buffs, architects, pub enthusiasts, or whoever, as it is solid London experience to be had.
Id love to find comparable pubs around town.

Old-time class - This place is awesome. It was rebuilt in 1667 after the Great Fire of London. Amazing. It has lots of different rooms on different levels. It is accessed down a little lane. Staff and clientele are low-key, no hassles.

I've eaten there once and the food was mostly good. Had Cheshire cheese appetizer followed by fish and chips (they kindly substituted mushy peas, which I don't like, for salad).

The lemon meringue pie was not tart enough and was stale. The pastry was soft. One thing I thought was odd was that I noticed the sticky toffee pudding was served with custard instead of toffee sauce. Have never seen that before.

The server for supper was very pleasant, but a bit slow in some regards. They got the main courses ready too soon and brought them before we'd finished the cheese plates. So you might want to consider waiting to order the main course if you don't want to rush.

Classic Old(e) Pub - In the short time I've been living in London thus far, The Cheese has turned out to be a real gem. Rebuilt in 1667, this place is obviously quite old school, and it can be a breath of fresh air if you are tired of fancy modern bars and clubs. Cheap beers on offer (they only serve Samuel Smith brews), no name brand booze or soft drinks to be seen (although they do serve generics) and surprisingly edible classic British pub food fill out the menu. I usually head downstairs to the cellar bar (watch your head!) and knock back pints of Alpine Ale (and at 1.99 a piece, it's hard to complain when you get stuck buying a round) amidst what appears to be an old wine cellar. Do beware that the place can get quite crowded in the evenings, and it is liable to have a yuppy crowd, what with its proximity to the city (and to the adjacent Goldman Sachs office especially), but this place is anything but stuffy. Full marks.
