Book Direct - Best Rate Guaranteed

Stay in Farringdon

If you’re in London for a work-or-play stay, it’s way better to stay in a pub than a hotel (in our humble opinion)

Pubs come with history, heart and a vibe – ours also comes with six quirky bedrooms. Plus, some flipping awesome food & drinks on tap (and generously stuffed minibars for midnight snacking)

With rooms fully equipped with those fancy-pants Nespresso coffee machines (ideal for that morning Macchiato) roll-top bathtubs, super-duperly comfortable beds and even a desk for writing those postcards home.

A combo of damask wallpapers, heavy velvet, modern prints – it’s fair to say our rooms are pretty good-looking.

They’re comfy too. Perfectly sized rooms for two are perched on the first floor above the pub. All with space for a doggy bed (or two) too.

They all have an uber-comfy Hypnos bed, ensuite shower, honesty bar (jam-packed with the best treats-and-tipples) a Nespresso coffee machine, and dedicated working space.
