A must on the City of London pub list to visit. The Hoop & Grapes is said to be the only surviving timber-framed 17th Century building in the City. It survived the Great Fire of london in 1666 by only a few yard, after the fire wooden building were forbidden to be built. It was converted to a pub about 150 years ago, which mean we can enjoy the building today.
Work in the 1980's supports the leaning front which has a uniquely aged beauty. There is a blocked up cellar entrance which is said to lead to the Tower of London. The rear has been extended to offer a larger bar and seating. There's always a good selection of real ales and good food.
