Cuisine: British & Irish

Rebuilt after the great fire of 1666, the Cheshire Cheese has probably changed little since Charles Dickens, Doctor Johnson, and Arthur Conan Doyle used to drink at the upstairs bar. The basement and sub basement offer endless nooks and crannies for a quiet drink, serving organic German lager and a range of Adnams ales. Lawyers mix with City office types on weekday lunchtimes, and it's standing room only. Evenings are quieter, though, you have to arrive before eight to get a seat on a wooden bench on Friday nights. St Paul's Cathedral is a 10 minute walk up Ludgate Hill, and Dr Johnson's House is five minutes away, clearly signposted from Fleet Street.
