The Rising Sun - Cloth Fair

Tonight we join our spooky pub friends in the ancient historic area of Cloth Fair. In medieval times this area used to be where the cloth merchants hung out.

We're visiting the rising sun, right next to the Norman St Bartholomew's Church.  There's been a pub on this spot since the 1600s, this one's been here since 1823.  It lay derelict and empty for much of the 20th century until, in 1984, Samuel Smith, purchased and refurbished the building. 

Local legend has it that in the 1800s body snatchers used it as a meeting place to plot and plan their steals , as well as do dodgy deals with doctors for their gory wears.

We won't be doing any such dodgy dealing, just drinking the cheap Samuel Smiths beer, and enjoying good company.

This is one of those hidden down an alley way pubs, so check a map beforehand.  Nearest station Barbican.
