Cordiality, however, may have been in short supply in this area in days gone by. The pub had close associations with prize fighting and was at one time called the Bucket of Blood. John Dryden, poet and satirist in the era of Charles II, also had a bout of fisticuffs with hooligans sent by the King to uphold the honour of the Duchess of Portsmouth, mistress of Charles and whom Dryden called rude names in some of his verse.
Dickens definitely had a pint here as did Dryden, Thackery and numerous other discerning palates. One of London's best looking and oldest pubs The Lamb and Flag has everything the purist could desire.
