About the Pub

The building started life as the Fitzroy Coffee House in 1883 and became the Hundred Marks in 1887; renamed the Fitzroy Tavern in 1919, when Germanic references were not popular.

Formerly a Charrington's house, it was taken over by Sam Smiths and has recently undergone a complete transformation (along the lines of the Princess Louise in Holborn). A large semi-island bar serves six separate drinking areas, some connected internally. There is a profusion of well crafted etched glass, mirrors, tiles and wood panelling, on which Sam Smiths have really gone to town. Paintings, photos, posters and other memorabilia decorate many available walls. There are two real fires! Even hardened pub-goers should prepare to be impressed.

Prices would probably have a Yorkshireman reaching for his smelling-salts, not his wallet, but they are very reasonable - for London.

Fitzrovia, which is said to have taken its name from the pub, had a distinctly bohemian flavour from the 1920s onwards, and the Fitzroy was its beating heart, where Pierrepoint the hangman mixed with Fabian of the Yard, Coco the Clown, Dylan Thomas, Augustus John, Hugh Gaitskell, George Orwell . . . becoming one of the very few pubs to have its own biography, by the daughter of a previous licensee ("The Fitzroy; the Autobiography of a London Tavern" by Sally Fider, available second-hand or from a good library).

Archive photos of this pub as a Charrington's house are available at www.historypin.org/en/fitzroy-tavern/.
