The original owners wanted a U.K.-style pub. English, Irish, Scottish — it didn’t matter hugely, they just wanted the kind of pub that they enjoyed so much on their trips abroad.
They wanted the music to be rock, mostly English rock, and loud enough so that you can name the song; but never so loud that you need to shout over the song.
They wanted the food to be both comfortable and spectacular, a mix of mid-range pricing and fine-dining quality. And they wanted the finest draught beers from the U.K.
They wanted a place you can hang about and chat; where everyone feels welcome and comfortable.
They wanted a place where you can watch international football (soccer); or maybe instead have a go at the dartboards.
Now there's a new owner: an actual Brit. And what first attracted him to Fleet Street was the fact that the previous owners got it so right. He's adding a few things: a comfy sofa or two, and a few books and board games to help you while away an hour or two; and he's stocked the bar with a good selection of Scotch Whisky. But if you've been to Fleet Street before, you won't find any major changes. And if you've not visited us yet... come on by! We'd love to meet you.
We make all of our food here. From sausages to sauces; from batter to fries; whatever you're eating, it's been made in-house. We do not serve manufactured or bought-in products, we buy ingredients and cook real food. We hope the pride we take in our food shows, and that you're as happy with it as we are.
We have 11 beers on draught. Most are British, including Fullers ESB and London Pride, Iron Maiden Trooper, and Boddingtons. We also have local beers on draft, including (of course) at least one IPA at any time. To supplement the draft selection, we have a wide range of British, European, and domestic bottles and cans.
London's Fleet Street was the home of newspaper publishing from about 1500, and the first daily newspaper was published there in 1702. Fleet Street soon became synonymous with the news media in the same way that Wall Street became synonymous with the financial industry in the USA.
Meanwhile in Nashville, the pub is on Printers Alley, which is so named because it was the hub of the publishing industry in the southeast, and where Nashville's first newspaper was published. Thus an English pub on Printers Alley naturally became Fleet Street Pub. And since the location was downstairs and in a basement, it seemed almost too obvious to go with a London Underground theme.
Whether you're looking for the best British beers on draft, delicious Scotch Whisky, or bottled foreign and domestic beverages, we've got you covered. (And, of course, we also have plenty of Bourbon, Rye, Gin, Vodka, Rum,...)
