Converted in 1996 from warehouse/stores and offices originally owned by the East India Tea Company this Greene King pub has seen a few trend changes in it's time. The current offering is a lovely pub tucked away on the East side of the City, plenty of open spaces and an outside area. There are also little corners and a downstairs to enjoy. Service has been good, although like most pubs things get very busy from Thursdays onwards. The beer is kept to a high standard and on my visits has been a pleasure to drink.

If you follow the road around to south you come to Leadenhall Street where you will find one of the few early 17th century churches in England, St Katherine Cree. The tower was built in 1504 but if from an earlier building. Consecrated in 1631 by Archbishop Laud. Sir John Gayer left an endowment for the 'Lion Sermon', still preached here annually, to commemorate his escape from a lion while travelling in Arabia.
