Philpot Lane is a short street in London, United Kingdom, running from Eastcheap in the south to Fenchurch Street in the north. It is named after Sir John Philpot, Lord Mayor of London from 1378–79.

It is the site of London's smallest public statue, "The Two Mice Eating Cheese", on a building near the junction with Eastcheap. The sculpture is said to commemorate the death of two workmen, who fell from scaffolding during the construction of the building in 1862. The workmen were arguing over the theft of a sandwich, which was later revealed to have been taken by mice.
