Worst meal I have ever tried to eat. Informed 2 members of staff who couldn't have cared! They didn't even ask if the meal was ok at any point. Would not recommend eating here. So many other better pubs nearby.More

The Artillery is the best pub in the EC1 area. The bar attracts a mixture of locals, suits students, and members of the L.S.O amongst others.

Decent selection of Fullers beers, a guest ale and very efficient and friendly service. A real pub with a nice atmosphere and the sound of conversation rather than intrusive background music. A relaxed pub in which you feel very at ease and comfortable. Obviously very...More

A relaxed, traditional London pub that overlooks the famous Bunhill Cemetery (I recommend a visit to William Blake's grave). The pub is bright & cosy, good for watching sport, or for a lovely Sunday roast and pint of ale, which I had today. Reasonably priced...More

Traditional English pub. Beer served was good. Nice atmosphere though a bit crowded with limited space to stand or hear each other.

Small pub off a main road, but can get very busy at peak times. There's some space upstairs where you can often get a table. Decent selection of beer, lager and bottles at central London prices. Friendly enough staff. I've never eaten there. Traditional chairs,...More
