About the Pub

Hidden in a passage behind Holborn Underground station, a pub has been on this site since 1549. It features in many London ghost books for its association with Catholic priests once caught and executed there in the reign of Henry VIII. It was one of the few William Younger's houses in London and the leaded windows and a brass plaque reflect this previous ownership. Decor is a mix of alcoves and stools, with mahogany-coloured walls and prints of early 20th-century ships. There are six handpumps for regional beers, including two guests and the aptly named house beer. Food is available all day and regular pie promotions are held. The Oakroom restaurant upstairs takes reservations and on Sundays a traditional roast is served with live jazz late Sunday afternoons. Wheelchair accessible double-door but no disabled toilet.
