Haste is Slow, Wisdom is Rare, Finery is Foolery, Silence is Golden...a philosopher's outlook immortalized in marble and gold mosaic, embellish walls and barrel vaulted ceilings and decorate the exterior at the Blackfriars Pub. Soak up some history and good advise as you snuggle around the fireplace, or cozy up in the back booth to tipple a brandy on a cold day. The food is hearty and homemade, cask ales. (The chicken pot pie is recommended). The site was a former medieval monastery, and the charming triangular art-nouveau masterpiece was built in 1905. It's worth a look, even if you don't plan on staying, just across from Blackfriars tube stop near the Thames. EC4
