Hansom Cab Ltd

About the Pub

A Grade II listed pub with three distinctive split-level drinking areas and the closest real-ale pub to the Design Museum.

Built in 1827 as the Pembroke Arms and renamed in 1965 when refurbished with its present theme. It is still partly decorated with horse-drawn cab memorabilia. Unfortunately the genuine Hansom Cab (minus horse) which used to hang from the ceiling had to be removed at the decree of the health and safety thought police. Trade is mainly local and with staff from the nearby police station. Up to changing five cask ales are on offer plus a good range of keg beers. If you want to eat but don't want to spend a main-course sum, the "beer snacks" on the menu have had favourable reviews.
