About the Pub

On a visit in mid-Jan 2022 only the one cask ale available reflecting the low footfall and trade in this area - Tanglefoot. Suspect like many other pubs in this area only one cask ale will be available until trade picks up. Which must now be the case as 2 cask beers on 05/04/22. The pub opens its doors at 10am for coffee etc but alcohol is not served until we think noon although it may be from 11am.

A spacious and smartly presented back street pub on street level. Traditional, Victorian-style décor (albeit not original) – lots of dark wood panelling; wooden floor; dark red and cream paintwork; embossed walls; etched-effect and mirrored glass; framed pictures with local and legal themes; chandeliers.

An open-plan, island bar is surrounded by partitioned areas and some intimate, cosy booths to one side with a quiet, separated area at back where music is hardly audible, otherwise recorded music throughout. Assorted wood tables, chairs and benches, some upholstered. In 2021 a work station with stools and ample plug in points was created to the right on entering.

The name alludes to the pub being reputedly on site of an old police station, some framed shackles have been found in the cellar. TV screens with FreeView channels. Full disabled facilities. Tube – Holborn, Chancery Lane. Formerly The Three Cups run by Young's, the current design and furnishings were installed by Hall and Woodhouse when they took over. Available for hire on selected weekends.
