Lenin met Stalin here

Lenin & Stalin shared a pint here, as did Dame Judi Dench


This relaxing London boozer is where reputedly in 1905 local boy Lenin met young Stalin for the first time.

It's also featured in Notes On A Scandal where Dame Judi Dench sat inside.

At the rear there's a weird lounge area with an original fireplace and an old 'Conspirators clock' dating back to 1683.

It was formerly called the Crown and Anchor.

Location: 43 Clerkenwell Green, Clerkenwell, London, EC1R OEG
