One of London's oldest pubs, the Lamb and Flag name harks back to the military expeditions
made by Europeans to fight for the Holy Land in the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries.
The lamb represented Christ and the flag was the sign of the crusaders.
Parts of the building date from the early 18th century with the brick facade being
a relatively recent refurbishment.
The narrow alley to the left of the pub leads into Floral Street
