Knights Templar pub in London

The Knights Templar pub on Chancery Lane in London is near where I work and I was there last night.  It’s actually situated in between where the original Templar preceptory was (near Chancery Lane tube station under a modern edifice called Southampton Buildings) and the ‘new’ Templar church built in the late 12th century (nearer the river Thames and still standing – featured in The Da Vinci Code).   Chancery Lane is very much the ancient centre of London’s legal community with medieval buildings nearby – including one where Sir Thomas More – Chancellor of England and executed by Henry VIII – was based.   Here are some more images of the pub.
