The Crosse Keys is in my top
five pubs to visit in the City of London and
that isn't because it's a JDWitherspoon, far from it in fact. Formally the headquarters
of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank this huge pub now occupies what was
main banking floor. There is a mass of seating to your left
you make your way to the oval shaped bar. Once there you will find
all the favorites as well as a superb selection of guest ales. Being
Cask Marque accredited the quality of beer is outstanding.
Oh, just to add, the beer prices are amongst the cheapest in the City and the range extensive, but don't expect service like an All-Bar-One, they aint compatible.
