Default Charming pictures show the London pubs where time has stood still for centuries

Charming photographs show inside the beloved boozers where time has stood still for centuries
The Mayflower, which dates back to the 16th century, is located at the mooring of the Pilgrim Fathers' ship
British patriotism is clear at The Nags Head in Belgravia where the landlord displays a collection of militaria
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...bs-London.html


The Nags Head in Belgravia is a tiny free house hidden down a
narrow mews between the fashionable Harvey Nichols and the
opulent Berkeley Hotel. British patriotism is clear at pub where
the landlord proudly displays his collection of militaria which
includes a selection of hats, medals and flags. It is one of 22
historic pubs that have been collated in a book titled, Great
Pubs of London



The Cittie of Yorke is a Grade-II listed public house in Holborn. It is
also listed in CAMRA's National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors.
The pub is owned and operated by Samuel Smith's Old Brewery.
The buildings on this site have been pubs since 1430, but the
current establishment was actually built in 1920. Charlie Dailey
photographed a total of 22 pubs for her father's new book -
Great Pubs of London



This stunning shot shows the marble and mosaic vaulted room at
The Blackfriar. The Grade-II listed masterpiece was built in 1905 on
the site of a Dominican friary. The building was designed by architect
H. Fuller-Clark and artist Henry Poole, both committed to the
free-thinking of the Arts and Crafts movement



The Blackfriar was built on a site once occupied by the Blackfriars
Monastery. When the interior was remodelled, multi-coloured
marble was installed, along with mosaics, copper reliefs of
jolly-looking monks, and decorative touches such as the elaborate
fire-basket with goblin ends. The monks are shown singing carols
and collecting fish and eels



The Prospect Of Whitby is a traditional British pub in Wapping which
dates back to 1520. The original flagstone floor dates back 400 years
and the has a rare pewter-topped bar as well as old barrels and ship
masts built into the structure. Most areas of the pub have spectacular
views over the River Thames. It is one of 22 historic pubs that have
been collated in a book titled, Great Pubs of London



The Mayflower in Rotherhithe made the cut thanks to its location
at the point where the historic ship of the same name set sail for
the New World in 1620. It dates back 400 years and is considered
one of the oldest pubs on the River Thames. It is one of 22 historic
pubs that have been collated in a book titled, Great Pubs of London



This charming picture shows view towards the bar at the George
Inn in Borough which dates back to the 17th-century. Oak beams,
low ceilings, latticed windows, open fires and interlocking rooms
provide the perfect retreat from the chaos of the world outside. It
is one of 22 historic pubs that have been collated in a book titled,
Great Pubs of London. Author George Dailey said: 'There are plenty
of wonderful bars worldwide but nothing that compares to a London
pub'

wow! I really like those pics!
I'm partial to the Cittie of Yorke and the Prospect Of Whitby. I would love to pop in to either of them and have a drink or two

I saw an article the other day (in the Telegraph, I think) about the best cider pubs in Britain. Man, would I love to go on that tour!

The cider house was once a regular meeting place in the orchard rich-areas of the rural West Country, usually one-room bars where a glass of local scrumpy was served (never over ice cubes), often alongside a hunk of farmhouse cheese in the company of farmers, ferrets and farriers.

A small handful still continue this tradition, but there is also a new wave of town and city pubs that celebrates cider and perry (never fruit cider), alongside beer. Here are 10 of the best, both traditional and modern.
The rest at The Telegraph.
