Streets of London

Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ The Temple is an area of the City of London surrounding Temple Church. It is one of the main legal districts in London and a notable centre for English law, since the middle ages to the present day. It consists of the Inner Temple and the Middle Temple, which are two of the four Inns of Court and act as local authorities in place of the City of London Corporation as to almost all structures and functions. Before the establishment of these Inns of Court, the Temple area was the precinct given to the Knights Templar until they were suppressed in 1312, but the area has retained the name from that time. It became a centre of the legal profession soon thereafter. “

Pubs in the area

As Londoners, we love our local pubs. Temple has great ones to become your new regular spot. Consider these if visiting or moving to the area of Temple.

Pub name Name Address Description
Harrow 22 Whitefriars Street London EC4Y 8JJ Became a Fuller’s tied house 2005. A tastefully refurbished hostelry with three bars; one of which must be the smallest in the vicinity if not the whole of the East London & City area. The restaurant doubles as a function room with bar.
Jamies 36 Tudor Street London EC4Y 0BH Built in 1974 as the corner of an office block. Geared up more as a wine bar. Split level.
Old Bell 95 Fleet Street London EC4Y 1DH A Nicholsons pub with central bar, bare wooden floors and half wall panelling, giving the pub a warm and cosy feel. Said to have been first built for Wren, to cater for his masons rebuilding St Bride’s church after the fire of 1666: the crossed knife and fork in brass, set into the front threshold until the ‘80s, was considered to be a sign for the illiterate workmen. The back of the pub looks out onto St Bride’s Churchyard, and there is a little smoking space outside the door. Inside a U-shaped bar and a semi-separate drinking area. The walls are adorned with pictures and old press cuttings and announcements. There is an exceptional elaborate period coloured window to the front. At the rear is a corner cupboard carved with axes and daggers dated 1603.
Olde Cock Tavern 22 Fleet Street London EC4Y 1AA Est 1546 over the street, this building dates from 1887 when it was moved to make way for a bank. Ex-Truman, Grand Met, from 1993 S&N Retail, it’s was a Spirit pub since 2003 with Taylor Walker brand, now generic Greene King. Exceptionally narrow five-storey building, timber-framed, with a carved wood cock and ground floor frontage that some have attributed to Grinling Gibbons (in which case it must have been moved from the previous building). The interior is long and narrow to rear in a succession of small areas, sympathetically restored in 1990 after a fire. Ceilings of various heights, dark wood panelling, some bare brick, old local photos throughout, side bar with fancy hundi lights above and fancy dark carved wood under the counter, a small mezzanine at the back supported by thick aged wood beams, with a snug underneath. It’s claimed that a James I fireplace and Grinling Gibbons mantlepiece also survive from the earlier building. Improved beer range, Four changing guests from the likes of Cottage, Hackney, Nelson, Red Squirrel and Truman. 10 hand pumps with at least 2 Greene King beers and 2 ciders.. Sports and News on the TV (always on). Function rooms upstairs, plus mezzanine and snug. There are 2 shuffle boards on the first floor
Punch Tavern 99 Fleet Street London EC4Y 1DE A well-known institution in lower Fleet Street which could easily be missed were it not for Mr Punch outside. Grade II listed.
