About the Pub

A Flemish Renaissance style exterior leads to a highly ornate interior with fine painted ceiling bosses and elaborate murals of curvaceous ladies by Felix de Jong, the leading musical hall decorative artist. It was called the Flying Horse until it was rebuilt in 1893 by the Baker Bros to the design of Saville & Martin at a cost of £12,120. After over a century as the Tottenham, it has now reverted to its former name. Grade II*-listed and included in CAMRA’s National Inventory, it is now the only remaining pub on Oxford St. J K Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, describes the pub in her 2013 novel The Cuckoo's Calling.

The downstairs bar has windows to the cellar.

Note that the licence does not permit alcohol sale before noon on Sundays.

Historic Interest

Grade II* listed, Historic England entry 1357394. A plaque in the downstairs bar informs us about the St Giles slum ("rookery") formerly nearby: ‘St Giles, saint of lepers, beggars, cripples and those struck by misery’. The rookery was largely swept away when New Oxford Street was cut through it.
