Just off Fleet Street; this pub has been around for some time and it retains an 'Olde London' atmosphere. Dr Johnson's House is just around the corner and it's highly possible he would have come here (though there is no record of that). Anyway, there is plenty of Johnson memorabilia inside to help you make the connection.
Ye Olde Cock Tavern,Fleet St, originally known as Ye Cock and Bottle, dates back to 1549 and has the narrowest frontage of any pub in London. It was originally on the North side of Fleet Street, but has been on its existing site since 1887 and was the inn for Samuel Pepys, Charles Dickens and Dr Johnson,
This beautiful building in Fleet Street, known as "Prince Henry's Room", managed to escape the ravages of the fire. Once a tavern where Samuel Pepys liked to cavort, its intricately decorated plaster Jacobean ceiling is one of its most impressive features.
