About the Pub

A licensed premise has stood on this site since at least 1632. Now a magnet for tourists and Grade II listed, this majestic 1900-1902 ‘gin palace’ designed by the architect GD Martin has a central bar and superb etched glass mirrors, polished woodwork and tiles. It was originally the Marquis of Granby's Head but was rebuilt in 1851 and renamed after Sir Joseph Paxton, designer of the Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park that year. Both the elegant upstairs restaurant and the cosy Hydeaway Sports Bar downstairs, with TVs, pool and table football, can be booked for functions.
