The Owl and Pussycat

308 user reviews 4

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.

Artillery Arms

11 user reviews 5

A traditional and welcoming Old Street pub, The Artillery Arms offers tasty, classic pub food; perfect for those wanting something to line the stomach before a big night as this pub is perfectly placed as a jumping point for a night out in Shoreditch. Want more? It's also a great location to sample some real ale in London and chill with mates.
