About the Pub

A small, wedge-shaped pub near the Coliseum Theatre, established in 1764 as the Granby's Head. It later became the Marquis of Granby, honouring General John Manners, who led the Horse Grenadier Guards during the Seven Year War of 1756-63, and gave £200 to any officer or wounded soldier under him who opened a tavern and named it after him. Earlier on this site at a tavern named The Hole-in-the-Wall, the famous Restoration highwayman Claude Duval was arrested, and then hanged at Tyburn Tree.

The present building was rebuilt in 1843 to the design of Isaac Bird, and is Grade II listed. Charles Dickens drank here during the years he was working to buy his family out of a debtors prison. An upstairs room with one ale handpump is available for dining or private hire. Food is served including traditional pub meals, smaller dishes, sharing platters, baguettes, salads, and burgers.

Normally there are four real ales available, three of which change.
