  • Visitor Information

New bar and non-smoking restaurant just opened on the top floor of the pub.
Friendly staff, swift service and a jovial atmosphere, off the beaten path and just far enough from the manic buzz of Leicester square to not be over run with tourists, and yet still close enough to be easily accessible.
