A FASCINATING PAST

Ye Olde Watling has a remarkable heritage dating to 1668. It stands on Watling Street, a Roman road leading out of the City via Ludgate.
One claim to fame is that our upstairs rooms were used as a drawing office during the building of St Paul's Cathedral.
We also think our pub catered for Wren's workmen after the Great Fire of London in 1666.

One of a kind

Ye Olde Watling is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
