The Lamb and Flag
At first glance, you might think that you’ve gone blind: The Lamb and Flag is one of those traditional old pubs that seems to think that being able to see clearly is something that few people need. In fact, its dark panelled interior is almost impossible to navigate when you first step inside from the sunlight.
Chiefly because this isn’t a new age bar that will be packed with suited and booted bankers at 2pm on a Thursday. It’s a traditional old drinking hole, the kind of place most believe will disappear in the next few years. If this particular pub is going anywhere in the near future though, it’s upwards. As a no nonsense, enjoyable location right in the heart of the city, they’re drawing in the locals at an unbelievable rate. A mecca from the tourism driven hellholes that surround this location, it offers respite from the machinations of greedy profiteers.
Try one of their real beers. Yes, we mean the dark stuff that’s not going to go down without any resistance. You can get cheap lager anywhere in the capital, so why waste this chance to enjoy the plethora of malty, hoppy brews on offer behind the bar. Anything from Germany or Belgium is sure to get you started in the right direction.
