Stroll down Old Street and you will find a haven for quirky creatives and cool kids, old Eastenders and city office workers because behind that modern facade. For great beers and slap-up grub, check out our recommendations for the best pubs in Old Street in the list below.

The Owl and Pussycat

One of the best pubs near Old Street, and well worth the short 10-15 minute walk, the Owl and the Pussycat is a drinking gem. Not only boasting a cutesy beer garden and rustic yet vintage interiors, their craft beer roster and gastro forwardness will keep you heading back for more.

The Whitecross Tap, London

A Free Pint of Guinness per guest to kick off the 6 Nations match and 2 other offers

Located between Old Street and the Barbican, The Whitecross Tap is a traditional boozer serving sourdough pizzas and a wide range of real ales. Stop by the friendly spot on match day to enjoy live sports while digging into a selection of slices topped with spicy pepperoni, pulled shawarma chicken and hickory-smoked bbq sauce.
