An imposing Victorian pub on Fleet Street, just by Ludgate Circus. It was originally a much larger establishment, but part of the original pub split off a few years back and is now trading under the pub's original name, The Crown & Sugar Loaf.

Inside this is an attractively maintained pub, with banquettes around the edge of the room and further tables scattered around. Ewan visited on a Saturday for a private party (the space can be booked for a reasonable fee), so cannot speculate how busy it usually is on a weekday, but presumably its location and history mean that it remains relatively full.

The only ale on handpump on a visit in August 2008 appeared to be Theakston Best Bitter, but there was a good range of other beers, as well as some perfectly drinkable wines.
