About the Pub

Post-war pub which was rebuilt in 1961 as part of an office block development, facing the Connaught Rooms and Freemasons Hall. The interior of this single lounge bar is done out in classical Greek theme and divided into two areas by two central Herculean columns. On the right, wood floored with the servery, note the large figure of Hercules behind the bar. The pub offers a special Masonic Menu for groups wearing the correct apron. Limited outside pavement seating is available. In a visit in Feb 2019 there were beers from Truman's, Vale, Butcombe (Rare Breed), Sambrook's and Sharps (Cornish Coaster). Halves can seem over-priced compared to the cost of a pint - check before buying.
