See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This is an small near-200 years old ex-Friary Meux house on Seven Dials - formerly part of the notorious rookery of St Giles - where seven streets converge in the heart of 'Theatreland'. There are two drinking areas surrounding an island counter, and tables and chairs outside. The area was originally laid out by Thomas Neale in the 1690s at the centre of which is a (recently restored) pillar with sundials (count 'em!). The pub was re-built in 1834 and is Grade II listed. At one stage each of the seven apexes of Seven Dials housed a pub. The corner facade features a Taylor Walker clock.
