About the Pub

Unusual for the West End of London in that it is a free house, this compact but welcoming pub consists of a ground floor bar, with a few tables at the front and the rear and plenty of vertical drinking space with shelves for glasses and a few high stools in between, and a restaurant upstairs. The traditional feel of the place is enhanced by an attractive back bar and wall mirroring with a partly lino covered wooden floor downstairs and a most unusual old leather-fronted bar in the restaurant.

Whilst an enticing menu of good-value pub food, with pies as a speciality, is available upstairs, service in the bar is limited to those pies and snacks and cheeseboards only. With these offerings and a good range of real ales, this is a popular pub at lunchtimes and pre- and post-theatre.

Historic Interest

The pub dates from 1738, taking its name from its location on what was then called Queen’s Street, renamed Denman Street in 1862 in honour of a Lord Chief Justice born there. In the 1840s it was known as the Courier’s Club, trading in wine, brandy and coal. Later, reduced in size, it became part of the Piccadilly Theatre site.
