Check in at the handsome attached boozer and you’ll be pointed to the separate front entrance for the hotel, with its lovely floor mosaic, leading to a handful of well-appointed, atmospheric and surprisingly luxurious rooms. All are different, but the high-spec facilities (big flatscreen TV, roll-top bath and drench shower) and quirky attention to detail (bottles of ale in the minibar, the ‘Nursing hangover’ privacy signs) are common throughout. Expect some clanking noise in the early mornings as the traders roll in, but proximity to the historic Smithfield meat market also means you get a feisty fry-up in the morning in the pub.
