Good Old English Food With A Twist

An Old English Pub would not be complete without traditional English food, but as you’d imagine we weren’t satisfied with just the same old English food !! 

We wanted to simply amaze and delight you, so we are over the moon to be able to introduce you to Robbie Lorraine, the incredibly talented Chef that founded the business Only Food and Courses. 

Whether you want to just pop in for a quick bite before the theater or after work, or you want to settle in and experience his 6 course (YES 6 COURSES) taster menu, we promise you’ll leave with a huge smile and possibly the requirement of a taxi !!

For over 200 years, the Cheshire Cheese pub has stood tall and proud in one of central London’s most important and oldest districts. 


We serve a wide selection of beer, wine, gin and whisky to suit all tastes, in our beautiful oak-panelled saloon bar. 


Starting life as a real ale public house frequented by wordsmiths and seafarers of the early 1800s, this important piece of London heritage has a definite generational style.

While away the hours enjoying our specially selected craft beer, sample our extensive range of delicious wine - or maybe a cheeky dram of whisky is more your style. 


Whatever your favourite tipple, the Cheshire Cheese pub is sure to have something to suit you.

Customer Reviews 

At The Cheshire Cheese, we're dedicated to preserving the rich tradition of a classic English pub experience. But don't just take our word for it—here's what some of our cherished patrons have to say about their visits:

The place will not disappoint anyone who wants a non-pretentious and cozy place to imbibe. The staff is beyond friendly and, most importantly, the bartenders actually make an effort to serve you even when the place is full.

James G.

Super cozy pub, really friendly service and great beers on tap (incl. Leffe and Guinness)! Location is also great on a nice quiet street.

Jack T.

Kind staff and we came in from the windy cold and immediately the gal made us feel welcome. We had all the good drinks. We came in early so we had the place to ourselves! Nice atmosphere, a lot of character, and fun things to look at. They also had a great playlist of music going on.
