A cool pub with bags of history, English ales and Thai-inspired food. In a peaceful spot, but you catch the tube just around the corner

This stylish inn dates to 1759, but its moment of fame came in 1838, when Charles Dickens changed its name to the Three Cripples and made it Bill Sykes’ watering hole of choice in Oliver Twist. These days it’s a thriving local with a restaurant serving pan-Asian food to discerning locals and visitors alike. It sits on peaceful Saffron Hill, with flower baskets and Victorian lanterns on the outside, then painted panelling and Chesterfield sofas within. You’ll find English ales, fancy cocktails, wines from around the world, then some very popular Asian cooking, perhaps chilli salt squid, Asian pork belly with choy sum, vanilla ice cream topped with tamarind caramel. The special is a snip at £12 for any main with a pint or glass of wine all day Mon-Tues and after 6pm Wed-Sat. St Paul's, the Barbican and the Tate Modern all within easy reach.
