There was The Hope near Smithfields as well and The Market Porter in London Bridge. The Porter was good but it didn't serve food... after a 12 hour night shift, it wasn't long before we were feeling quite drunk drinking on an empty stomach!Anyone in Central London (Barbican/Smithfield) on the day, desperate for an early pint - try here, the last remaining early-opening market pub. Beer available from 8am on a Saturday.
A boutique hotel, raditional pub & event space, between Farringdon and Barbican. Serving traditional British seasonal dishes and real ale.www.foxandanchor.com
Wetherspoons all open nice and early but avoid the ones in Westminster as the council has an alcohol ban in the borough until a certain time (it was midday last time I tried but that may have been specific just towards the Euros final) .
