About the Pub

A Fuller's Ale & Pie pub re-opened under its new name in July 2016. The beer range has increased (including some interesting bottles) and food is now served from 9.00am. The theme is very much around astronomy and there is some very interesting bric-a-brac to catch your eye as well as the downstairs Hubble Bar. Middlesex St was originally named Petticoat Lane, possibly prudish Victorians changed the name, but on Sunday's it remains home to the famous market.
