The oldest pub in London

Anne and Brian at the Lamb and Flag Tonight, for our friend Anne’s birthday, I treated her to something very London: a gin & tonic at an old London pub: the Lamb & Flag. It is most likely the oldest pub in London and probably best described by Charles Dickens (click to read). Pubs.com explains it as:  

… a small wooden fronted pub. At over 300 years, it’s the oldest in Covent Garden, and possibly one of the oldest in London…

The main reason for choosing this pub was a quest for an old gin bar, as described by Dickens. The fact that it was a warm and sunny Saturday made it all that much better. Since Charles Dickens wrote about this neighbourhood when explaining gin, I figured the oldest pub in this neighbourhood in London was an appropriate place to try.

While it does have some charm, the pub really isn’t all that. Yes, we had a G&T with Bombay Sapphire, but it was a bit crowded and with no good music to keep us entertained, we soon moved on. Still though, it was an interesting place worthy of the visit.
