Cittie of Yorke

At one of our early trips to London we visited the old pub Cittie of Yorke on High Holborn.
Cittie of Yorke has Britain’s longest bar and private booths along one wall. These booths are often occupied by the legal professionals from the nearby Grey’s Inn. It is heated by a large triangular iron fireplace. The fireplace has no chimney but flues that run below the wooden floor. It was build in 1920, but there has been a pub on this site since 1430
