About The historic Borough Market is just a stone’s throw from where you are now. This is where the barrow boys used to ply their trade, selling possibly much the same kind of produce that is still being sold there today. The Barrow Boy & Banker was originally the first branch of the National Westminster Bank. You can still see many of the original features such as the large windows and double height ceiling. And beneath the bar is a labyrinth of existing bank vaults, which we now use to store and condition all our beer. We are known as an Ale & Pie House, one of several similarly styled pubs owned by Fuller’s. As the name suggests, we are famous for selling fantastic homemade pies and perfectly conditioned award-winning ales. Over many years we believe our team of chefs have perfected the British tradition of pie making. All our food is freshly prepared and cooked in our kitchen using the finest quality ingredients, locally sourced where possible. Our cask ales are brewed just 8.8 miles from here, at Fuller’s in Chiswick, London’s last remaining traditional family brewery. The imposing building started life as the very first branch of the National Westminster bank. You can still invest your money here!
