The Coeur de Lion is Bath's smallest pub and what you see in this shot is pretty much the size of the pub. There is seating for about 20 or so people in this bar and there is additional seating upstairs for dining and a few tables in the alleyway outside.

Located on the 7th floor of the Tate Modern is a restaurant and bar with one of the best views in London. They sell a wide range of bottled beers from Brew Dog, Samuel Smith, Fullers, Innis & Gunn, Harviestoun and Suthwyk Ales. Read a review at Travels with Beer.

The Nag's Head in posh Belgravia, London has the lowest bar in London and probably the UK. The floor behind the bar is lower than the front so for bar staff it's a regular height bar but the front is so low, it requires mini stools.

The Counting House is a Fullers pub located on Cornhill, London and is just a stones throw from the Bank of England. The building was constructed in 1893 as Prescott's Bank and the foundations rest partly on the North sleeper wall of a 2,000 year old Roman basilica. The pub is very similar to another Fullers pub, the Old Bank of England on Fleet Street but this is slightly more impressive. Being a dark pub it was quite difficult getting a good shot and I didn't have some settings right so elements such as the pump clips are not as clear as I wanted.

The Old Bell is an historic pub located on Fleet Street, London. It was built by Sir Christopher Wren in 1670 and prior to that, Wynkyn de Worde, former assistant to England’s first printer William Caxton, installed a printing press in the same building as a pub located on the site in 1500. The pub was built has a hostel for workers rebuilding St Brides Church which is located to the rear of the pub. The church is thought to have been the inspiration for the traditionally tiered wedding cake. You can read a review of the pub at Travels with Beer.

Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese is a very well known pub located on Fleet Street, London. The pub was originally built in 1538, destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666 and rebuilt in 1667. The pub is a maze of rooms and bars and the cellar is believed to have belonged to a 13th century Carmelite Monastery which once occupied the site. The pub is dimly lit which makes taking photos without a tripod very difficult hence using an ISO of 3200. You can read a review of the pub and view more photos at Travels with Beer.

I much prefer the metallic pump clips over the cheaper cardboard ones. This Lemony Cricket pump clip was spotted at the Ship and Shovell pub in London. The pub is unique in that it is situated on either side of an alleyway with an underground tunnel connecting the two halves.
