The Coal Hole, London

The Coal Hole is a stunning piece of 'olde Englishe' revival built in 1903-4. The pub consists of a lofty, beamed L-shaped room whose main decorative theme is the celebration of the grape. Near the ceiling is a deep plaster frieze of grape-gathering women and the rear features a very large decorative terracotta fire surround. A finer example of this style of pub is the Cittie of Yorke, also located in London. Unfortunately there is some lens flare in this shot but it was the best version of the interior that I had.
