A unique city centre pub with a rich history

Nicholson’s Pubs are known for their individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities — and Ye Olde Watling is certainly no exception.

Basking the shade of St Paul’s Cathedral, this pub is located in the heart of the city of London, on the historic Roman Road, Watling Street.

After being burned down in the Great Fire of London, our historic building was rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren in 1668 to house his workers and, most importantly, provide somewhere for them to drink. The plans for St Paul’s Cathedral were actually drawn up in what is now our dining room — quite a claim to fame!
