Dirty Dick's Pub

Dirty Dick's Pub


London, United Kingdom (GB)
A pub in Bishopsgate, London at the beginning of the 19th century, changed its name from The Old Jerusalem to Dirty Dick's, and recreated the look of Nathaniel (Dick) Bentley's warehouse shop. The contents, including cobwebs and dead cats, were originally a part of the cellar bar, but have now been tidied a to a glass display case. Successive owners of the Bishopsgate Distillery and its tap capitalised on the legend.
