The Viaduct has been a Fuller's pub for a couple of years now, but to be honest you don't really come here for the beer (even though it's good), but to take in the Victorian interior. Built on the site of an old jail (there're still a couple of surviving cells in the basement as well as rumours of a ghost), the Viaduct Tavern is a well preserved pub with some glorious touches of nineteenth century decor. The fare on offer does its best to live up to the opulent surroundings, and this one's worth popping in if you happen past. Tends to get crowded with the highly-paid punters from the nearby offices and, less frequently, journalists, witnesses and spectators from across the road, it's worth a visit outside of the busy times if you want a nosey round the interior. (Closed Sunday).

A real piece of history - well worth a visit if in the area. They do a good pint of Pride as well.
