Shaws Booksellers

Shaws Booksellers photo


A great City pub near St Paul's Cathedral, the quirkily-named Shaws Booksellers combines the understated charm of a trusted local with a thriving City centre location. Perfect for after work drinks, expect a warm welcome, high quality traditional British cuisine and a fresh-as-a-daisy pint of traditional real ale.

It's not just the name of the pub that attracts intrigued City Pub goers - customers are often fascinated by the little touches that make this place unique - things like the Star Wars figures on the blackboard, or the Scrabble-inspired reserved signs! Shaws Booksellers has Fuller's Master Cellarman status - a guarantee of quality, well sourced ale. For a fine, fresh pint near St Paul's Cathedral, there are not many places that top Shaws Booksellers!

Lively after work spot, a great place to meet up with friends! I went on a busy Friday night and the Staff were competent and very friendly. The food was also good!(try the scotch egg!!) Visited Shaws Booksellers on 2016-01-08

A favourite of mine for after work drinks, they have a lovely selection of wine and a fabulous lunch menu, it can get very busy so booking in advance is advisable. Service is generally to a good standard and staff are mostly friendly. Nice in the summer to stand outside in the sun

<p>Met a mate for drinks after-work last week. Really nice place. Not like some of the ridiculously overcrowded places you get in the city.</p>
