Let’s be honest, Farringdon isn’t short on the sort of pubs that make you feel like you’re very much in a historic part of London the minute you get through the door. And this one definitely has that distinct ‘we’ve been here for ages’ vibe, while also serving some of the best pies in the area. They’re freshly cooked to order and demand is usually high at lunch: so much so that they actually recommend you call ahead to make sure you get one. But it’s all good: while they sort out the food, you can head over to the shuffleboard and have a game while you wait.
