About the Pub

A Victorian corner pub built in 1855, located near the British Museum and Holborn’s many transport links. It has an attractive exterior with large windows to the front; hanging baskets in summer decorate the outdoor seating area in front. The carpeted front bar is furnished traditionally with an over bar glass shelf, settles, tables and chairs, etched glass windows, red walls and plush curtains. Although there is a plasma TV here, it is the long, wood panelled rear bar with two screens that is principally sports oriented. The attractive upstairs function room, usually open to the public, has large windows offering views of Bloomsbury. Traditional pub food is served see pub website for times.
