About the Pub

Located near Freemasons Hall and convenient for theatreland, this pub was first licensed in 1704 and known as the Bull's Head until 1778. The Geological Society was founded here in 1807. An extract from The Times indicates that‚ †the Football Association was created here in 1863 after six meetings that year in the pub; this was, however, in the Freemason's Tavern nearby! Originally owned by Charringtons, it was acquired by Sam Smith in 1985, Greene King in 1988 and finally Shepherd Neame in 2003. The interior is comfortably furnished with leather banquettes and wood panelling, but the background music can be intrusive. There are four TV screens for sports and two function rooms.
