About the Pub

There was a 14th century noble's house here with (unusual for the time) a lead roof, hence Leadenhall. Rebuilt as a market after the fire in 1666. The wrought-iron market you see today was as rebuilt again in 1881, modelled on the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuelle in Milano. The present pub dates from 1780 and was rebuilt with the rest in 1881. Ex-Bass Charrington, then a free house, until Young's bought it in 1985. Grade II* Listed building, like the rest of the market, in maroon and off-white with columns, gilt trims, frosted windows and the Corporation of London shield. Ceramic tiled mural by the entrance featuring Wren looking at the plans for the Monument. On four levels: the ground floor is quite small and standing-only; a small gallery added in the mid-1980s; a top floor for lunches; and a basement bar called Old Tom's (with the same real ales but a slightly more eclectic range of lagers, e.g. Camden, Meantime, Urquell). The ground floor has dark wood panelling,! engraved glass, marble columns, wrought iron spiral staircase to gallery, standing room. On the top floor are lots of pictures including portraits of 19th century Young & Co directors. Old Tom's bar in the basement, opened in 2011, is accessed from a separate door, with original cream & green glazed tiling (dating from when this was the toilets!).
