See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A small, wedge-shaped pub with a wooden bar and seating in booths down one side of the pub and bar stools down another. This, coupled with the paraphernalia around the walls, gives a very cosy feel. It is famous for its stopped clock (a German zeppelin dropped a bomb on the pub in 1915 killing 3 men and stopping the clock). The food is traditional and home-made with main meals served 12.00 - 14.30, at other times snacks such as nachos and sausages are available until around 22.00. Reported as "free of tie" in the summer of 2016 and plans to put in a fourth pump to compliment the three they already have. Toilets only accessible by steep stairs. Tube - Holborn.
