About the Pub

Former Taylor Walker pub and listed building. Closed in 2011 having reopened as a free house following a sensitive renovation with lots of wood and glass in late November 2006 after 16 years’ closure.

Historic Interest

Grade II listing:- Public house. c.1860 with alterations to the ground floor of c.1900. Polished granite, brick and stucco, roof obscured by parapet. Four storeys over basement, seven-window range, the frontage bowed on the corner of Goswell Road and Clerkenwell Road. Ground floor has a plinth of black polished granite and slender piers of pink polished granite supporting a fascia with early C20 glazed and painted panels 'PARTIES CATERED FOR/ HAT AND FEATHERS/ RESTAURANT'; the curved frontage and that in Goswell Road have original woodwork to the entrances with scrolled pediments and engraved glass, and leaded glass overlights to the windows; moulded and bracketed stucco cornice. On the upper floors the two westernmost bays in Clerkenwell Road have simple flat-arched windows and a stucco band to the parapet; the rest of the facade is treated more elaborately. The centrepiece on the curved front consists, at first-floor level, of two flat-arched windows flanked by engaged Ionic columns with wreathed capitals supporting an entablature which breaks back and forwards and in its turn supports urn-like finials flanking the flat-arched second-floor windows. To either side of the centrepiece are giant stucco pilasters with ornate foliage capitals and fruit and foliage pendants on their faces, supporting equally ornate brackets and a moulded stucco cornice which runs across the whole of this part of the facade; the outer windows under the cornice in Clerkenwell Road and Goswell Road have moulded stucco architraves. The third floor has two pairs of round-arched windows to centrepiece, deeply recesed between antae, then statues of Classical female figures on either side, and then flat-arched windows with moulded stucco architraves. Parapet with segmental-arched panel to centre flanked by scrolled consoles and balustrade, and inscribed 'THE HAT AND FEATHERS'. The interior is much altered but retains dado panelling and some c.1900 panelled and glazed partitions to the bar facing Goswell Road, and a bar front, some dado panelling and staircase with turned balusters in the bar facing Clerkenwell Road.
