Nestled in closely to the adjoining buildings on the eponymous street and near the railway bridge to Fenchurch Street under which its near-neighbour, the Cheshire Cheese, dwells, the Crutched Friar is a deceptively spacious Nicholsons worth hunting out if in EC3. Entrance is via a ramp, slightly upward in gradient and above which is an attractive, dark stained wood-panelled roof from which - inexplicably - chinese lanterns hang. To the left is a raised drinking area which we are sure would be pleasant to sit in, were a table ever free. To the right is a separate dining area. Service at the bar can be a little laboured, which fact is exacerbated by the bar area tending to get thronged with people not actually queuing. The choice of ale is pretty decent, even for a Nicholsons, with a series of guest beers alongside the usual Tim Taylor Landlord/London Pride. There is a mid-sized rear courtyard, unusual in these parts, which gives the pub an additional thumbs-up. It's certainly one of the better ones in this area.
