About the Pub

Following closure due due to insolvency in Feb 2020 the pub reopened under new management at the start of November 2021. Awaiting new details of beers, kitchen hours etc.. Meantime, the following description and most of the other details on this page relate to the pub's previous incarnation.

Converted, at some stage, from a multi-room pub into one with a single space wrapped around an 'L'-shaped bar, the Pig's Ear is light and airy. The wood panelling has been painted, but the floor stripped and sealed. The red ceiling enhances the tiffany shades over the bar counter, itself panel-fronted and metal-topped. The back bar is of oak and there is a lovely fireplace, used in appropriate weather. The upstairs dining room has a more traditional feel about it; the panelling has been left varnished and a magnificent fireplace and large mirror dominate the room.

The Pig's Ear is a deservedly popular pub, one of the small London-based Union Bars grouping. It is noted for its French influenced British food. There is a bargain limited choice lunch menu during the week.

Historic Interest

The pub dates back to the late 17th century when it was named the Black Lion. Peninsular War hero John Moore "quaffed the unadulterated beverage of malt and hops" here. By 1820 it boasted a bowling green and a tea garden. The present pub was rebuilt in 1892.
