Pubs in the area

As Londoners at Cozee, we cherish our weekly visits to the local pub. Why not embrace the same in your new living space? We’ve diligently tested and reviewed all the pubs in Aldwych – well, not literally, but we wish we had! Here’s our list of the finest pubs in Aldwych.

Pub name Name Address Description
George 8 Great Queen Street London WC2B 5DH May 2023 -operating lease for sale. The passing rent is £79,000 per annum, the lease expiring in 2032. The vendor is seeking premium offers in the region of £295,000 for the benefit of the leasehold interest.
Hercules Pillars 18 Great Queen Street London WC2B 5DG 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.
Nell of Old Drury 29 Catherine Street London WC2B 5JS Small cosy pub opposite the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. Licensed in 1835 as the Sir John Falstaff and rebuilt in 1883. Renamed by 1965 after the orange seller and mistress of King Charles II, Eleanor “Nell” Gwyn, reputedly born in a coalyard in Drury Lane. She was witty, shrewd, saucy and sexy, and a magnet for the period’s alpha male, Charles II. A tunnel used by the king to visit Nell is reputed to link the pub and the theatre. The present-day clientele is a mix of locals, tourists, after-work drinkers and, of course, theatregoers (who need to cross the road, since the tunnel cannot be found!); there is an interval drinks service available for the latter. The first floor offers extra seating and can be hired as a function room. If you are lucky, you may be able to bag the ground-floor bow window seats overlooking Catherine Street. Please note: no sports colours or large groups encouraged – it’s a very small pub!
Philomena’s 40 Great Queen Street London WC2B 5AA Formerly part of Mitchells and Butlers O’Neill’s chain of theme pubs, before that the Sugar Loaf (a Bass Charrington house in the 1970s, and apparently it featured in an episode of Minder – let us know if you spot it!) and a pub dating back to at least the 1770s when it was a meeting place for the Jerusalem lodge. Now down to just one cask beer at a generous £7 a pint (Aug 2022).
Prince of Wales 150-151 Drury Lane London WC2B 5TD Called Charlies for some years, it has now reverted to its original 1850 name. Stood at number 154 until rebuilt in 1932 to allow street widening. Situated at the corner of Drury Lane and Great Queen Street, close to the imposing Freemasons Hall, well placed to serve both Covent Garden market area and the theatre-going public who throng to this area in the evening. Electric lights housed in gaslight-style lanterns illuminate the dark stained wood bar, while the general lighting in the room is subdued. Seating is mostly at free standing tables for four, high level ones in the middle, and lower ones at the sides. Three upstairs function rooms are available for hire for parties, receptions, etc. The food range includes platters, pies, burgers, fish and chips, and sandwiches.
Shakespeare’s Head Africa House, 64-68 Kingsway London WC2B 6BG The pub takes its name from a famous pub that was located nearby until the entire street (Wych Street) was demolished over 100 years ago, shortly before Africa House, was built. Converted from a bank/building society in 1998.
White Hart 191 Drury Lane London WC2B 5QD A pub that is much larger than it looks from the outside. There is a narrow bar leading to a large baronial rear area. Rebuilt in 1912 by Hoare and Company’s Red Lion Brewery, the pub claims from Old Bailey archives to have been in existence since 1216 and to be the oldest licensed premises in London. It, and the surrounding Drury Lane area, was a plague hotspot in the Great Plague of 1665.
