New London Tavern.

New London Tavern.

This is an extensive building; the front is covered with stucco, and it has a small portico, above which are the arms of the City of London. The principal room, which is on the second floor, is considerably wider than the one above described, though not quite so long; it is fitted up in the handsomest manner, the ceiling being ornamented with gilt lyres and wreaths, and on the east side, is a music gallery with an elliptical front; at each end of the room, are false windows filled with looking-glasses, which has an excellent effect. From the ceiling depend thirteen small but neat chandeliers. On the other floors are several handsome rooms, and the cellars are the most capacious of any tavern in London: they consist of two tiers, one above the other, and are the foundation of a noble house, erected by Sir C. Wren. The present proprietors are Messrs. Peacock and Co.

On the same side of Bishopsgate-street, more northerly, is Crosbysquare, the approach to which is under a gateway. Here is one of the finest specimens of early domestic architecture in London.
