About the Pub

Imposing pub with wood-panelled interior and a narrow central section. The pub, with its white painted stucco exterior, dates from 1837/8 and is grade II listed. One story has it that the pub opened on the same day as Queen Victoria's accession to the throne on 20 June 1837, and it was reputedly visited by her after the opening of the rebuilt Paddington Station in 1854. Ten or so years later, Charles Dickens is thought to have written sections of "Our Mutual Friend"in the pub. This is one of Britain's Real Heritage Pubs with ornately gilded mirrors above a crescent-shaped bar, painted tiles in wall niches and numerous portraits of Queen Victoria. The fittings from the mid-Victorian period are now very rare as so many pubs were renovated at the end of the nineteenth century. The multiple outside doors hint at the bar separation that would have been in place in Victorian times. The walls now display cartoons, paperweights and a Silver Jubilee plate. A recessed area at the back is furnished with a leather bench seat. Upstairs, via a spiral staircase, there is a library and theatre bar available for public use; the fittings were imported from the Gaiety Theatre in the 1950s. A few years later in 1966 David Bowie had a live gig here to launch a record.

Tuesday is quiz night. The pub usually has a beer festival in early November with around 25 guest ales. This was Fuller's Pub of the Year in 2007 & 2009, and in 2016 was voted runner up in the CAMRA branch Pub of the Year competition. Watch out for offers on the pub website.
