Cittie of YorkeAlthough the site of the Cittie of Yorke has been home to a public house since the 15th century, it has been housed in many different buildings under many guises. The current structure - a Grade II listed building, rebuilt in 1924 - evokes England?s historic past.

The pub has three bars: at the front it?s a wood-panelled affair, while in the cellar everything is modern and bright white. The real treat is the back bar ? at the end of a seemingly uninviting, gloomy passageway it opens out into a vast room. It might look like the inside of a parish church if it wasn?t for the bar itself and the rows of enormous casks balanced above it.

Architecture aside, the pub isn?t going to set your night on fire but it?s certainly worth a visit for a few quiet ales. It?s mainly frequented by office workers and lawyer-types from the nearby courts. When the weather?s good they plonk a few tables on the pavement outside for those who wish to enjoy the ?fresh? air of High Holborn.
