Fantastic place...oozing character. Good but not excellent food and very friendly bar staff. A credit to the boss.
Despite what you say it was not built on the site of Newgate Prison and the cellar is NOT former cells.Very obliging staff will give a free tour of the rooms below. What they say are former cells are storage racks for barrels and the hole in the roof, purported to be for prisoners food is in fact for the hoses connecting the barrels to the bar. Nice story though.Loved the friendliness, the character and ambience of the place. Would return anytime.
