About the Pub

Small pub on an old corner site, adapted from one of the Blackfriars Monastery’s gateways and most recently rebuilt about 1865. Its shape recreates that of a cockpit and fighting cock prints adorn the walls. (It was renamed the Three Castles in 1849 when cockfighting was prohibited, reverting in 1970.) Enter by the corner door to a drinking area with a curved bar up a few stairs; galleries above are inaccessible.
