    This Awe-inspiring and very cool pub is a Fullers chain pub.
    The amazing artwork, pictures and decor really set the scene and is like stepping back in time.  A noose hangs above the bar which is a great novelty for the name of the pub.
    Good selection of beers on draught, wines and cask ales.  Food menu is very traditional and distinctive - great British food.  
    Famous for their selection of unique pies like Beef and Oyster and three cheese and marmite, exceptional classics like Mud Crab burger and battered hake and skins on chips.  They even have awesome grazers like Bone Marrow on Toast!! Amazing!  Prices are slightly expensive, however it's worth paying that bit extra for a fantastic experience.  I ordered the fishmongers board which was delicious.  Beautiful Prawns, Calamari and Hake
    Staff are friendly, especially the attractive French barmaid.  Add this pub to your 'bucket list of pubs' - Fantastic.

    We stopped in after hours of photography around London, needing some liquid refreshment and a bite to eat. Both were available and met the standard for London pub fare.

    I went here recently for drinks after a work event at Tower of London, which is a really short walk away, and it's a great British and London pub.

    The pub is really atmospheric with lots of history from the pictures on the walls to the  nooses hanging.

    When we arrived it was overtaken by a lot of the post-work crowd from the nearby City but we soon changed that and livened things up!

    The staff were friendly and the service was quick, they had a good choice of drinks on tap - I love a good cider so this was good in my book - and it looked as if the other drinks of the bottled variety were plentiful too.

    The loos could've been better, they were really cramped and there were only two.

    Really close to Tower Hill tube and DLR and actually not too long a walk even to London Bridge as my friend and I walked there afterwards to get our trains home.

    Interesting pub with a perfect name, very near to the Tower of London. It does close disappointingly early on Sundays (door said 6pm, but when we arrived at about 5:30, we were told they were closed already), but it is worth a visit when it's open.

    The inside is a tiny bit macabre (in a good way), with nooses hanging from the ceiling and somewhat menacing portraits of Henry VIII and other royals from that time period scattered around, which gives a great "old time" feeling to the pub (with the exception of the TVs found in some corners), and sets the tone well for the Tower of London area. The Ale was good, as was the house wine, and though we didn't have any food, the menu was tempting.

    The bartender was friendly, and though the pub was empty when we first arrived, it was doing a brisk trade by the time we left. We happily found a nice little nook to curl up in, under the watchful eyes of Henry VIII, and enjoyed having a couple of drinks and relaxing. All in all, if you're in the area, this pub is definitely worth a visit, and I look forward to going back the next time we're in London.

    Well yeah, of course Pats and Pats are going to head into a pub called Hung . . . Drawn & Quartered.

    Adorable bartender, and quite a comely crowd of appealing British men. Looked like an after work crowd.

    My companion, being the art geek she is, enjoyed the hell out of the fantastic amounts of old art on the walls. In fact, she was a total dork about it. I say this with love, 'cos it was damned amusing.

    And they have cider there too. Cider and art and hot British men. Call this one, also MKP. My Kinda Place.

    Disclaimer: Even though I once lived in England for a short time, I am a tourist (with British blood in my veins).

    My sister and I stopped in here...we were "drawn" in by the name and cool signage outside. It was a great place to savor a pint before heading over to the Tate Modern. It is convenient to Tower Bridge if you want to be the ultimate tourist.

    Great atmosphere and friendly bar keeps, but every pub I've been to seems this way. Be forewarned... the clientele appeared to consist of mostly bankers!

    Great name. Fine ye olde worlde dark wood that doesn't reek of tat. Decent prices, for a City pub. A couple of uninspiring ales (Adnam's and Price, I believe. Fine ales, but.) Filled with snotty bankers.

    On the up side, easy to find and get to and from, but not worth going out of your way for.

    I have it on good authority that if you're bringing a whole passel of American history students to the Tower that it's a great place because you can fill them with beer without looking too hard.

    To kill a bit of time before Yelping on Ice we went in here for a quick drink and I realised it's been ages since I've been in a proper pub. Most places I end up in these days are gastropubs but this place the focus is not so much on the food (in fact I saw no food at any tables but did see a menu) but the drinking. Proper pub drinking. They have mulled wine and spiced apple cider at the moment too, they also have a lot of suits in there on a weeknight.

    However, it wasn't too crowded on a Wednesday at 6:45 and we got a table, it was warm and welcoming and perfectly fine for what it is.

    Plus it has nooses hanging from the ceiling, which is a nice touch if you're a tourist visiting the tower.

    Great name for a pub, and after a visit to the Tower of London, sounded perfect to grab a pint and a pie.

    The bar was half-empty, mostly filled with banker-types.  We sat in the candle-lit dining-room with its angry portrait of Henry VIII, fireplace and candles, eating steak and oyster pies with HP sauce - I don't know if that's incorrect, but whatever.

    Lovely pub with awesome replicas of famous Tudor-era paintings but  geez what's with the 10pm last round on Saturday nights - especially when it's a packed house?

    Anyway, The Hung, Drawn & Quartered is a good pub to keep in mind when out in the the Tower Hill area - just don't get their too late!

    Surprisingly decent for a pub so close to the Tower of London. We were expecting a tourist trap, but the food was decent and we were treated pretty well for a group of mostly tourists with two prams.

    Killing time while the parental units are touring the Tower of London we stumbled into this pub. Service was super friendly and the Honey Dew was just about the best lager I've ever had. I tried the steak burger and it was amazing.

    This place is tiny but charming.

    Had a very nice, cozy atmosphere. The place was packed with people just off of work, which made it really difficult to see what beers they had but I was happy to be there. It's a really beautiful room, with wood panels and a noose behind the bar. Everyone was friendly, though the seating was a bit cramped. I'd go again for sure, but there are plenty of other places nearby that warrant higher reviews and therefore, I gave this a 3.

    Starving after venturing the Tower of London with it's eerie history and beautiful crown jewels, my dear roommate and I spotted the Hung Drawn & Quartered Pub that was introduced to us during our tour around London. We seated ourselves inside, it's a very distinct feel I must say. Paintings all around and everything is wooden! I love that I can place my bag on the hanger under my table, makes things that much more safer. Our server came over and gave us menus, then came back to take our orders. We both ordered the bacon, cheddar and steak burger, the name may be a bit off, my memory is a bit hazy, it was almost 10 pounds but includes chips and a coleslaw (salad?) It's a big portion, SO delicious. My burger was great! I never usually say that London food is any good, but this blew me away! We also ordered a pint of Fuller's organic honey dew beer 2.80 pounds and mm, i think i just found my new favorite beer, what better than an organic one?! She brought us our check after she saw that we were done and ready to go. Service is decent and the food is great. I would definitely make a trip back before I leave london! Maybe I'll try one of the pies next time?!

    There was a great number of people here, I mean, it was a saturday and the weather was amazing and all...this prompt me to come even more. Oh, btw, the loo downstairs is quite creepy if you go alone...bring a friend, thinking about all the things I saw at the tower of london, definitely made the trip very spooky.

    Great place right near the Tower of London. Golden Pride beer was outstanding and the meat pie was delicious.

    Just had a great meal with a cool pint and found the fish and chips superb with large crispy chips. Atmosphere was good with lively music playing in background and 2 televisions playing the Olympics . Traditional inside with main toilets downstairs but a disabled toilet upstairs. Would return when in the area.

    Solid bar close to the Tower of London. Service was decent. Ale was great. I got the Hung Drawn & Quartered house pie, with chips. It was delicious. The pie had lamb, tomato sauce, coriander, and lemon... baked in a nice pastry crust. Chips were great. I got a dessert of spotted dick, which is like a raisin bread pudding with custard on it. It was also very good.

    Nothing super special, but a good pub to know about if you ever find yourself in this part of town on a weekend and are looking for a pub that is open. It's big inside, so plenty of space if you have a large party in town.

    Quite an attractice old-fashioned looking pub with some atmosphere. Not far from Tower and Tower Hill and especially useful when other pubs are crowded.
    Here is a lot of space.
    The choice of drinks is average.
