The pub entrance is down the side alley. Once inside, it is surprisingly spacious
but there are no windows to let in natural light.
In the Great Fire of London in 1666 an even earlier pub called the Horn was destroyed,
but the Cheshire Cheese was established shortly after.
All the monarchs who have reigned in England during the pub's existence are displayed
outside, to the right of the entrance.
The pub is proud of its literary associations, with regular patrons incuding Alfred
Lord Tennyson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mark Twain, PG Wodehouse, and Voltaire.
