Dating back to 1856 and Grade II listed, The Bloomsbury Tavern is one of the most fascinating historic pubs near Holborn. It was once the ominous final watering hole en route to the hangman’s noose at Marble Arch - but today, the pub provides a rather more welcoming prospect!
The pub is handily placed for visiting the British Museum, Covent Garden, and Theatreland, making it the perfect Holborn pub pitstop on any great day out.
Fine fare flows in abundance at our tavern in London, with superb Shepherd Neame ales on tap, an exceptional choice of wines, and fresh food served all day. Meanwhile, natural light streams through stained glass windows, creating a welcoming, atmospheric vibe - in stark contrast to that deliciously dark history.
It all adds up to the perfect pub in Holborn, ideal for a leisurely lunch, a post-work pint or a weekend stop-off on the tourist trail. Pop in and try one of our favourite menu items for yourself; we’re sure you won’t regret it.
