About the Pub

Refurbished in mid-2021 and opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, a splendid exterior leads to an interior which lacks cohesion but offers good beer. A tavern was said to have been built on the site in 1723 but the Tudor style frontage dates only from an 1898 rebuild. The old pub sign in our 2013 side alley shot showed George III, however the pub is believed to be named after a former landlord and reference to royalty has been removed from the current signs. Inside, the bar is long, with some partitioned seating areas opposite, leading to a room at the back and the upstairs Pig & Goose restaurant. Theatre ticket food offers and pre-theatre special deals, see pub website for details. NB: the ale range may reduce and the pub may close early at quiet times.
