About the Pub

The pub is named after the admiral who defeated the Dutch at the Battle of Camperdown in 1797, and has been trading since at least 1832. Dylan Thomas is reputed to have left his original handwritten manuscript of Under Milk Wood in the pub just before he needed it for an American trip! It was retrieved by a BBC producer who traced his pub crawl.

The one-room pub has karaoke, cabaret and drag nights and is now very well known as a centre of the Soho gay scene, and attracts a regular crowd. There is a tiny dance-floor soundtracked by a jukebox playing mainly 80s and 90s music.

Historic Interest

Three people died in a nail-bomb attack on the pub in 1999. It was also the centre of the Soho gay community tribute to the Orlando massacre victims in June 2016.
