About the Pub

With its stylish Art Deco entrance and very 1920s style bar (an Art Deco walnut looking bar with Art Deco silver inlay) off to the right from reception, this is a comfortable spot just off a splendid public square; still open fields at the end of the C18, once a place to hunt ducks and fight illegal duels.

The Square has strong literary connections – Dickens lived at the NE corner and here he wrote Bleak House, Little Dorrit and other works; Virginia and Leonard Woolf ran the Hogarth Press from the basement of No 52 and it is indeed from Virginia that the bar takes its inspiration. Reasonable priced hotel accommodation bearing in mind location.
