One of the oldest pubs in London, go and see it while you can! Rumor has it, the British Pub Institution, as a whole, is dying out.

Most of London was destroyed by fire in 1666 and the oldest buildings mostly date back to that time. The current incarnation of the Cheshire Cheese was built in 1667 and you can tell with the first creaking step you take into the place. The seating is all wooden tables and straighbacked booths like you'd find in a church. The window glass is warped because it's more than 300 years old.
In addition to all of this old world awesomeness, the Cheshire Cheese serves up many British culinary classics like Yorkshire pudding, steak and kidney pudding, fish & chips and bubble & squeak.

The Cheshire Cheese is one of the oldest pubs in London - built back in the 1600s and feels like it is that old. Charles Dickens used to hang out here. It has a very cool vibe and is a great way to soak in a little taste of historic London. Located in the Fleet Street area of town.

the Cheshire Cheese is one of the contenders for the oldest pub in London and one of hang outs of some of Britain's literary greats, including Dickens, Tennyson, and Doyle. The interior is a fantastic mix of old and new architecture and natural light..

One of the oldest pubs in London - great place to grab a drink and soak in some of old-school London. Rebuilt after the Fire, this pub retains a feeling inside that must've been close to the original ambiance. Heavy dark wood, cozy fireplaces and not too much decoration - just some old paintings - Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese is a great place to transport yourself to a London of another time.

This is a fun place to visit, especially if you're a Dicken's fan. It was a favorite spot for many famous authors including Charles Dicken's (who mentions it in a Tale of Two Cities), Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Mark Twain. The food is decent, and the place a bit gloomy, but it has plenty of charm, and its nice to soak up the atmosphere of so many literary giants! Not far from St Paul's Cathedral - make it your lunch stop before heading to the Cathedral.

Located on Fleet Street, this dark little pub dates back to the 17th century. One of Charles Dickens' favourite haunts (when he was alive, not sure if he actually haunts it). Wine selection is a bit awful. There's lots of speciality beers though.

Unique pub, low ceilings, multiple levels, twists and turns. There's some very private intimate nooks with cool lights, or a few more open areas with big tables. The drinks are priced well and the staff is good. It's worth it to check it out. I was here on a weekday and there wasnt many people, but I imagine it probably is busy on the weekends.
