See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Built in 1855, and rebuilt in the early 20th century, this former Friary Meux house was originally four rooms, now merged into one, but with a number of drinking areas. Listed carved mahogany back cabinet embellished with carved lionheads, and incorporating old style bar cash office, few of which survive. Walls adorned with old theatre posters, enamel advertising plates and pictures. One of the earliest gas pressure gauges still in existence is here. Ceiling festooned with anything you can think of, musical instruments, tricycles, old lamps, - you name it, it's there.
Function room upstairs currently used at times as a restaurant. Occasional live music. Food served Mon to Sat 12-15 and 18-22, Sun 13-15 (roast only); upstairs restaurant Thu to Sat 19-22 (Thai). Runner up Islington in bloom competition. The Hemingford Gunner is a generic 3.9% Greene King house beer.
In Nov 2021 we were informed by a customer that there was no longer a discount for CAMRA members.
