YE OLDE CHESHIRE CHEESE LON­DON

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE - Gavin Haines

Hid­den down an unas­sum­ing al­ley­way off Fleet Street, Ye Olde Cheshire has a gloomy charm be­fit­ting of Lon­don, and literary con­nec­tions aplenty: Wode­house, Twain and Dick­ens were all reg­u­lars, the lat­ter al­lud­ing to the pub in A Tale of Two Cities. Re­built after the Great Fire of 1666, the boozer’s dusty nooks, vaulted cel­lar and open fires make it a fine place to hide from the English win­ter. Or­der a pint of bit­ter and mind the sign erected in less en­light­ened times: “Gen­tle­men only served in this bar”.
