About the Pub

Until 2020 this was a 1995 Wetherspoon bank conversion, formerly the premises of bankers Messrs Cocks Biddulph & Co (later to be absorbed by Martins Bank and finally Barclays Bank), the building was designed by Richard Coad and built 1870-73. In November 2021 the premises reopened as a McMullen's outlet, a “premium bar serving traditional British classic food”. The ale range is from McMullen and the food offering is wide and includes pub classics, Sunday roasts, and sandwiches.

The venue is split-level with a range of seating including high stools, banquettes, and comfy chairs. Fairly inevitably for a pub with this name, wall decorations include a giant picture of "Scotland for Ever", Lady Butler's famous 1881 painting of the charge of the Royal Scots Greys cavalry at Waterloo on 18 June 1815. There is also an interesting map of London created for visitors to the Great Exhibition of 1851.
