Description: A really fine old riverside pub, original called The Navigators Arms and built as long ago as 1484. It was renamed in the 19th century when the Lord Mayor of London used to park, sorry moor, his grand barge outside.
Part of the Beatles' film 'Help' was made here and the towpath outside was used in both that film and 'A Hard Day's Night'.
Ringo ordered two lagers and lime and two lagers and lime for the fab four.
