That’s why we’ve thoroughly tested and reviewed all the pubs in Cannon Street. While we didn’t get the chance to personally visit each one, we certainly wish we could have. Here’s the curated list of the finest pubs in Cannon Street.

Pub name Name Address Description
Bell 29 Bush Lane Cannon Street EC4R 0AN This old pub survived the great fire of London and the greater threat of new building works fortunately a preservation order prevented the Bell from becoming a casualty. Lease acquired by Red Car in 2004 following the retirement of 86 year old Betty Jeskey who had been landlady for the previous 40 years. Became part of Ei’s managed division in 2019. The proximity to Cannon Street Station means it gets very busy. Lunchtime food is usually burgers or sandwiches and there is a 2-for-1 deal on Monday and Tuesdays.
Banker Cousin Lane London EC4R 3TE The pub is formed by an arch of Cannon Street BR Station bridge with two smaller arches forming a tunnel effect from which the river can be viewed. Interesting use of unpainted wood decorated in largely an Art Deco style.
Oyster Shed 1 Angel Lane London EC4R 3AB Brand new Young’s Geronimo-branded pub and restaurant opened 2012 on ground floor of Nomura office building. Large bar area with lower seating area with booths alongside tall windows looking out on the river. Modern decor with vague nautical theme, large chandeliers, light pine bar side and flooring, zinc bar top, mixture of chairs, tables and sofas and two large clocks at either end. One TV for sport and loud background ‘music’. Open-to-view kitchen, serving oysters, traditional British food including daily specials and 2/3 course ‘express menus’ for ‘City suits’ in a hurry. Stairs lead up to mezzanine floor overlooking the main bar area with a small bar (no cask ale), a restaurant and separate function room. Note the early 19th century German wall map of Europe. Limited outdoor drinking within roped off patio area.
Steel Yard The Steel Yard. 13-16 Allhallows Lane London EC4R 3UL Long basement Free House bar occupying a brick archway underneath Cannon Street main line station. Opened in 2000 in former club premises. Carpeted floors with a mixture of tables and chairs, spot lighting and exposed brick walls and ceiling. Steps lead to an upper gallery seating area overlooking the main bar. Doors near the entrance lead through to the archway next door used for private functions. Renamed LOOSE CANNON by May 2012. By 2019 renamed Steel Yard – an event space/nightclub with ticketed events. Areas available for private hire.
