On the peaceful, pedestrianised Lamb's Conduit Street, hidden behind an 18th century facade, is The Lamb, a beautifully preserved Grade II listed Victorian pub. The pub is named after William Lamb who in 1577 improved upon an existing conduit to bring clean water down from Holborn as an act of charity to benefit the neighbourhood. The pub still had one of the orignal wells in the back yard until the early 1900s. Victorian features include framed Hogarth paintings, a muscular polyphone (the Victorian equivalent of a jukebox) and etched glass screens between the bar and landlord. In Victorian times these screens ensured that the respectable classes didn't have to suffer the sight of lowly bar staff when they ordered their drinks. These days there's still an olde worlde appeal to this pub which serves traditional British meals with daily changing specials. There's a no TV policy which lends an air of calm.
