Golden Lion57 Fulham High Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Friendly local whose interior is larger than it looks from the outside. Close to Fulham Palace, Putney Bridge and of course the boat race. This is the oldest pub in Fulham, dating back possibly to the 1500s but known to have been licensed in 1757 and called the Fulham Coffee House until 1787. Rebuilt in 1836 and 1893, it has been tied to at least six breweries since the 1840s. But now it isn't! In the 1970s this was used by Led Zeppelin during breaks from recording nearby, and there are regular live music and other events. Quiz night on Thursday. Archive photos of this pub as a Charrington's Ales house may be seen at http://www.historypin.org/en/golden-lion-fulham/
