The Old Bank Of England @ Fleet Street, London


The Old Bank of England is a famous English pub owned by Fuller’s Ale & Pie House in Fleet Street. Why the name? The Bank of England once traded here until 1975. We went there for a really late lunch (3.45pm to be precised) after our short cruise at River Thames.

Ohh btw have you heard of the name Sweeney Todd? They even make a movie out of it starring Johnny Depp? Sweeney Todd is the barber who butchered its victim and then sold the cooked meat to Mrs Lovett for making pies. The Old Bank of England has something to do with it!

Of all the 3 pubs we dined at; Silver Cross, The Old Bank Of England and Spread Eagle (another Taylor Walker’s pub), Old Bank of England has the most lavish decoration and best pub food overall.

View of the bar. Unfortunately we’re going somewhere ‘secret’ after this and hence decided to only order non-alcoholic drinks which is free ice water. Hehe.

Chicken Kiev @ Old Bank Of England, London
Chicken Kiev @ £9.50. I came here expecting nothing but was wowed by the food. Superbly yummy and delicious! Again this plate is shared between sis and me. Yup it’s not a huge plate unlike others we have had but it’s good enough for us until our next meal which is after 10pm. Another ‘late’ dinner. Somehow I was feeling too sick to my stomach as I was too hungry already.
