About the Pub

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. It was a sensitive adaption and the pale pink sandstone, dark-wood panelling, high ceilings and arched windows would still be recognisable to the Victorian clerks who worked here. Even the portrait of a youthful Tim Martin, founder of J D Wetherspoon, on the sign hanging outside, looks in keeping!

The Lord Moon of the Mall's interior is open-plan, but cosy with panelled pillars, the usual mix of fixed and moveable seating, with both high and low tables, and has a family dining area to the rear where children are welcome until 9pm. Panels describing local history and relevant photographs are displayed on the walls. Given its location just off Trafalgar Square, a lot of visitors and tourists make a beeline for the Lord Moon, but there is still a good mix of locals, including civil servants and others who work in the area.

Food is available all day, but is from a restricted yet adequate menu due to a small kitchen and limited equipment. The long bar sports twelve hand pumps that offer real ales generally spanning the spectrum from light-coloured hoppy ales through to dark porters and stouts, via a good range of amber bitters.

Note that, although the pub opens at 8am, alcohol is not served until 9am.
