See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Built in 1858 as the Railway Tavern, which it remained until 1992. Possibly re-named after the drovers who used to take their cattle on the hoof to Smithfield Market. The pub is owned by the Conran family and is famous for its house-speciality oysters and seafood menu generally. There is an unpretentious smallish ground-floor bar with a good real ale reputation; and a first floor restaurant. Food times given are for the saloon bar; restaurant hours are different, see venue website.

The pub has been described in a magazine as "Good beer, oysters, chops, Victorian vibes, friendly bar staff, regulars and no music. It's a very posh pub, though." Beer and food prices reflect the restaurant ownership.

Note steep steps to WC. Note also that proof of age may be required here and that there may be door supervision Thursday to Saturday evenings.
