Are there any good pubs in Great Ormond Street Hospital?

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 Great Ormond Street Hospital – well, not literally, but we wish we had! Here’s our list of the finest pubs in Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Pub name Name Address Description
Duke 7 Roger Street London WC1N 2PB A CAMRA Heritage Pub for its outstanding interior; Art Deco features date from 1938, a part of an office and flat development with characteristic detailing and metal windows, what many inter-war pubs looked like before modern changes. The John’s Mews entrance leads into a small wood-panelled lounge, whilst the corner entrance leads you into a larger bar decorated with artwork, but no longer with original lino flooring.
Friend at Hand 2-4 Herbrand Street London WC1N 1HX Easily missed, just around from Russell Square, off Bernard St (note the pub sign), close to the Horse Hospital, built in 1797, originally a purpose built stable for 24 horses, now an arts venue. The street also housed London’s first public ambulance station. Lots of dark wooden panelling, dark rose and cream wallpaper, a low red ceiling and soft lighting create a warm, cosy feel for this more traditional pub. It has a welcoming atmosphere as its size encourages the clientele to talk as diners mingle with drinkers. Maybe this is the way it has always been, being built in 1735 it has had plenty of time to build its reputation; reportedly Dickens was a customer. Food is traditional fayre with the piece de resistance being a four pie platter with mash, peas and gravy, served until 21.30.
Lady Ottoline 11a Northington Street London WC1N 2JF From a visitor on 11/11/23 – 3 interesting ales sourced nationally (Brew York and Adnams) plus one real cider (crafty Apple on this visit)
Lamb 94 Lambs Conduit Street London WC1N 3LZ Beautifully preserved, Grade II listed and CAMRA Heritage Victorian pub with dark blue upholstery, a small snug bar and etched glass snob screens in place above the bar. These frosted screens were popular in the 1890s hiding the customer from drinkers in other rooms, but the hinges still allowed the bar staff to check on them without disturbing their privacy. The glorious history of the pub and area is also commemorated by an original working polyphon (predecessor to the gramophone) which can be played in aid of charity and sepia prints of music hall players.
Lord John Russell 91-93 Marchmont Street London WC1N 1AL A pleasant, traditional pub with six handpumps featuring one regular ale and two to three guest beers from across the UK (a beer Portobello from seems to be regular). Also of note is the large selection of malt whiskeys (50+) on sale. There are two televisions and a big screen, which show sporting events. In addition an outside seating area is available. Situated in a street with a more quirky character than most. In the evenings the pub can be quite noisy. Stocks Budvar Dark which is rarely seen in the UK.
Marquis Cornwallis 31 Marchmont Street London WC1N 1AP Aug 2023 – on a visit “The barman said he didn’t know of any CAMRA discount ” We had it down as 20p off a pint. Now removed.
Perseverance 63 Lambs Conduit Street London WC1N 3NB Sept 2023 – in summer, three of the pumps may be used for cider such as Snails Bank and Cockeyed Cider. But now we are into Rugby World Cup time – 3 pumps feature rugby themed beers from London breweries – Portobello, Sambrooks, Southwark.
Queens Larder 1 Queen Square London WC1N 3AR A very small, pleasant pub in a pedestrian area with ample outside benches and first mentioned in 1710. Despite its size, the pub originally had two bars. The main room has a lovely, homely feel with walls adorned by theatre posters leading up to a small lounge/function room. Food is made up of pub standards (rib of beef, ham egg & chips, fish & chips, sandwiches and snacks). Named after Queen Charlotte, wife of George III, who was receiving treatment for his apparent insanity at a doctor’s nearby. She assisted in his nursing, renting a room under the pub and cooking meals for him; the nearby park has a statue of her.
Rugby Tavern 19 Great James Street London WC1N 3ES IN August 2023 it reopened after a period of closure and at the end of Sept had 4 cask beers available which are as listed. It is not known to what extent (say) the Hobgoblin is a guest.. On the first floor find the ‘Bistro Bleu’ restaurant. In the bar there is a range of bar snacks.” The food times given are for “Bar Food”. The Bistro Blue opens Mon – Fri 12:00-15:00 / 17:00-21:30, Saturday: 12:00-21:30, Sunday 12:00-19:00.
Swan 7 Cosmo Place London WC1N 3AP A long, one-room pub which opens out towards the back and leads off an atmospheric, traffic-free street meaning that the outside seating area is relatively fume free. It is a busy, lively, popular venue with large screen TV (picture only), piped music, snacks and an extensive menu of pub standards served daily. 10% discount for CAMRA members.
