Drinks at the Cheshire Cheese (take two)

We're going to the lovely Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese on Fleet Street.

Built on the site of a monastery, there has been a pub here since the mid 1500s, its believed this one was rebuilt after the great fire of London, although much of it (paneling etc) dates from the 1800s.

Lots of historical, literary regulars including Samuel Johnson (who lived around the corner) Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, Mark Twain and Alfred Tennyson.

It is thought the pub was once a brothel due to some suggestive tiles they uncovered in the upper rooms.

We will meet at 5ish, so there will be plenty of time, for those who would like to sample some of the other great historic pubs along Fleet Street later on.

I can confirm that the Cheese is open on Saturdays too :)
