Boasting a long and proud history, The Old Bell Tavern has been a licensed tavern for more than 300 years. Built by Sir Christopher Wren, it housed his masons who were rebuilding St Bride's Church after the Great Fire. It’s also located on the same street as a certain infamous villain that you may have heard of, Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
Originally our pub could only be reached via an alleyway from Fleet Street, and as such we have a long association with printing as one of the first printing presses operated here around 1500. Today, we are easily accessible for all to enjoy a wide range of craft beers including the Meantime London Lager and Meantime Pale Ale, as well as an extensive range of gins and whiskys. The City of London Gin selection is a particular standout in our range… and the distillery is across the road from us.
Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer everything you’d expect to find on any respectable, British pub menu, and so much more besides. Boasting an array of delicious sharers, through to classic main dishes, and succulent burgers, there’s a selection to suit every appetite.
The Old Bell Tavern is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of iconic and great British pubs — held in the highest of regards for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
