These three pubs have some of the narrowest fronts in London. The left pub is located on Gracechurch Street and the ground floor bar is extremely narrow. There is a larger room outside or you can stand outside like the people in this shot. The second pub, the Golden Lion is located in posh St James's and you can view the interior here. The third pub, Ye Olde Cock Tavern is probably has the narrowest front of any pub in London but the interior isn't as narrow. The pub used to be located across the road from its current Fleet Street location and was demolished to make room for the Royal Courts of Justice.

The New Inn is an historic Grade I listed coaching inn located in the centre of Gloucester, England. According to Wikipedia, "The Inn was built not long before 1455 by John Twyning, a monk, as a hostelry for the former Benedictine Abbey of St Peter. It is on the site of an earlier inn. After the dissolution of St Peter's the inn passed to the Dean and Chapter of Gloucester Cathedral and was leased to various inn holders until it was sold in 1858." The New Inn is the most complete surviving example of a medieval courtyard inn with galleries in Britain. As well as a pub there is also a hotel, restaurant and coffee house.
