FAMOUS FOR HOUSING SIR CHRISTOPHER WREN'S STONEMASONS

You will find The Old Bell Tavern in Fleet Street London within a short stroll of Farringdon Street, City Thameslink and Ludgate Hill - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

The Old Bell Tavern has a long history, having been a licensed tavern for more than 300 years. Built by Sir Christopher Wren, it housed his masons who were rebuilding St Bride's Church after the Great Fire. Originally we could only be reached via an alleyway from Fleet Street and as such we have a long association with printing. One of the first printing presses operated here around 1500.

The Old Bell Tavern is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
