Young's pub in the City. Was in the 2007 Good Beer Guide but not the 2008 one.
Note that it has very limited opening hours on weekends.
Food is served noon-9pm Monday and Tuesday, noon-10pm Wednesday to Friday, and noon-4pm Saturday and Sunday. It's fairly expensive, but more interesting than standard pub food; sandwiches (e.g. chargrilled vegetables and hummous; peppered pastrami with mustard and gherkin) are £5, while mains (e.g. goat cheese, spinach, and red onion tart; steak and mushroom pie; mussels) are around £10 and puddings (e.g. sticky toffee pudding) are £5-5.25. They also offer platters to share, for £13-14 for two people or £23-25 for four. Photo of the full menu as of October 2007.
Note that this pub can be a little hard to find; the "Paternoster Square" part of the address is rather misleading. Queen's Head Passage is a small alley leading south from Newgate Street, and the pub is on the corner of Queen's Head Passage and Newgate Street. The gmap link above should be accurate.
