Excellent little boozer just around the corner
from Mansion tube. Small front bar with a back room for sitting.
Food is standard English pub grub usually served by a tasty bar girl
and very nice to (the food that is). This is a lovely traditional pub
in the City, although you do get city gents, they are likely to be the
real ale type. On occasion there have been ladies on this side
of the bar. Overall, down-to-earth, lovely venue.
Turn left outside The Hatchet and heading down Garlick Hill within a few yards of Upper Thames Street you will find the church St. James' Garlickhythe, rebuilt to the designs of Wren after the Great Fire and erected for the modest sum of £5,357 12s 10d. The tower of this churs is justly regarded as an example of Sir Christopher Wren's most distinctive work.
