    I've been to the Tipperary as well but again not recently. The Cheshire Cheese was always something of an attraction when it was the only London outlet for Pedigree I remember on a brewery visit way back being told that they delivered more Pedigree to there than the entire South of England. As far as I'm concerned Sam Smith ruined it.

    Certainly been in the Tipperary as well but pre reviewing when I worked opposite the Old Bailey.We used to organise an annual Fleet Street crawl and end up in a curry house in The Strand.Happy Days.

    And their final list of the oldest 10:

    The Seven Stars Carey Street, WC2
    The Olde Wine Shades Martin Lane, EC4
    Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese Fleet Street, EC4
    The Old Bell Tavern Fleet Street, EC4
    The George Inn Borough High Street, SE1
    The Hoop and Grapes Aldgate High Street, EC3
    The Spaniards Inn Spaniards Road, NW3
    The Lamb and Flag Rose Street, WC2
    The Grapes Narrow Street, E14
    The Guinea Bruton Place,

    I don't think I have visited the Wine Shades, which is part of El Vinos nowadays and may not even sell beer, but glad to say that I have been to all the rest.
    All except The Spaniards Inn, including The Tipperary, largely pre-reviewing days.

    The Olde Wine Shades used to be a regular haunt many years ago and they served beer then.

    Snap. Not been to the Shades as it's a wine bar. The Seven Stars is the best of the bunch, IMHO.

    Hmm, my Excel pasting is clearly getting rusty!
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Default Ten Midland towns to drink in

    A bit of a different list, mostly East Midlands:

    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan
