About the Pub

Reopened on 12 April 2021 subject to Covid restrictions.

Following a period of closure, this venue reopened in March 2019 as "a proper pub". It is located in a quiet courtyard in the Middle Temple heart of London's legal district. The pub is deceptively larger inside than its exterior would suggest; wood panelling, booths, partitions and historical prints predominate. Note that the stairs down to the WCs are steep and low-ceilinged.

Four ales are on cask plus a range of craft keg and bottled beers. Good-value toasties and simple bar snacks are available.

Historic Interest

Devereux Court takes its name from Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex and a famous parliamentary general in the Civil War; his bust adorns the facade. The original site builder here in the 1670s was Dr Nicholas Barbon, son of "Praise-God Barebones". The attractive Grade II-listed pub was built in 1844; part of the site used to be the Grecian Coffee House frequented by members of the Royal Society and the likes of Addison and Steele. In the early 18th century Sarah Mapp the Bonesetter (cross-eyed, very fat and "hideously ugly") carried on her trade here, some of her operations in the presence of Sir Hans Sloane.
