See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

NOTE - Following the retirement of long-standing teant this pub has closed temporarily from Sunday 28th Nov for about one week awaiting a new (Punch) tenant. It is then likely that much of the info we have will need checking and amending as necessary.

On the corner with Wren Street, where pavement seating is available, this comfortable, single bar pub is popular with locals and office workers alike. In 1830, it was used as a temporary magistrates' court after the first recorded murder of a policeman on duty. Young’s bought the pub in 1984 and the rotating beers can come from Marston's Eagle Brewery in Bedford, including bottled conditioned beers, and other suppliers (often London). The upstairs dining room is open 12.00 - 14.30 weekdays and can also be booked for meetings and functions. Food covers traditional British favourites, plus daily specials. TV for sports news coverage, and no music. Three times local CAMRA Pub of the Year.
