Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ The House of Hanover, whose members are known as Hanoverians, is a European royal house of German origin that ruled Hanover, Great Britain, Ireland, and the British Empire at various times during the 17th to 20th centuries. The house originated in 1635 as a cadet branch of the House of Welf, at that time also called by House of Brunswick-Lüneburg, growing in prestige with Hanover becoming an Electorate in 1692. A great-grandson of King James VI and I, George I, who was prince-elector of Hanover, became the first Hanoverian monarch of Great Britain and Ireland in 1714. At the end of his line, Queen Victoria’s death in 1901, the throne of the United Kingdom passed to her eldest son Edward VII, a member of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, through his father Albert, Prince Consort. The last reigning members of the House of Hanover lost the Duchy of Brunswick in 1918 when Germany became a republic. “

Pubs

As Londoners, we cherish our local pubs. Hanover Square has some great go-to spots. From smaller, more family run chains to larger pubs like WeatherSpoons, there is a pub for everyone in the area.

Pub name Name Address Description
Bonds 11 Dering Street London W1S 1AR A smartly-fitted spacious modernised gastropub on a corner site with natural light descending down through the unusual open lower mezzanine to the function room below. Highly polished wooden floors contrast with matte-painted walls with some original panelling in evidence. As might be expected for a pub close to New Bond Street an up-market menu of dishes is offered, but also including a limited bar-snack menu. Sports-oriented TV screens abound. Prices reflect the area but see pub website for offers.
Burlington Arms 21 Old Burlington Street London W1S 2JL Formerly Burlington Bertie’s, this is a smallish pub facing the rear of Savile Row police station. Licensed in 1720 as the Coach & Horses and rebuilt in 1783, and again in 1882 at a cost of £1,789. The main bar is on the ground floor; the first floor is used as a restaurant at lunchtime and a function room or bar in the evenings. Draught beers are served in “handles” unless you stipulate a “straight”. Post-pandemic it is reported that the previous larger range of cask ales has been reduced to three.
Clarence 4 Dover Street London W1S 4LB Licensed in 1724 as the Coach & Horses and rebuilt in 1892 and 1953. The pub website references the Duke of Clarence who became King William IV in 1830, though the sign outside shows a later Duke the firstborn son of the future Edward VII, Albert Victor who died in his twenties and hence did not succeed his father. The pub’s smallish frontage belies a much larger area extending back. It has a very convivial atmosphere after its refurbishment in 2012, with a pleasant quieter upstairs bar. Nicholson’s often have an unusual beer or two here. The pub is located very close to the famous Ritz hotel in Piccadilly.
Duke Of York 8 Dering Street London W1S 1AF Corner pub on three levels connected by a central spiral staircase. The ground floor features stools by the windows; there is additional seating on the first floor, and a cellar bar. Two Lilleys ciders occupy the remaining handpumps.
Goat Tavern 3 Stafford Street London W1S 4RP Licensed in 1688, the Goat is on the site of the former Clarendon House, home of the Lord Chancellor to Charles II. The freeholder Matthew Tomlinson in a will dated 1735 bequeathed an annual sum from his rental from the site, for clothing poor men and women of adjacent parishes, and this continued for more than 200 years! Former customers included Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton, the latter of whom lived nearby. Carrying on the naval tradition, in the Edwardian era the smoking room upstairs was a favourite rendezvous for senior naval officers. Rebuilt in 1958, now this is a small pub with a goat effigy on the frontage and additional seating upstairs. Two handpumps unused recently (Aug 23).
King’s Head 10 Stafford Street London W1S 4RX Large corner establishment with two function rooms. It was originally the Kings Head when licensed in 1710 and then the King John’s Head from 1843 until rebuilt by its landlord, Frederick Shelley in 1870 at a cost of £5,490. On the ground floor there are two counters with duplicated ale pumps, and the upstairs and downstairs bars usually have a couple of cask ales each.
Masons Arms 38 Maddox Street London W1S 1PY Licensed 1721 and rebuilt in 1934 with a Tudor style frontage. Small cosy bar with dark panelling, moulded ceiling, copper covered counter and leaded windows. Five handpumps including normally three Lilley’s ciders. The upstairs restaurant also serves as a function room. The wide food menu includes Sunday roasts.
Windmill 6-8 Mill Street London W1S 2AZ The creation of this pub in the 1980s from two adjoining buildings, formerly occupied by a nightclub and an escort agency, has produced a spacious ‘L’-shaped bar with painted wood panelling, some plain but intensely coloured wall tiling, wooden floors, decorative ceilings and an attractive frieze all dominated by a large chandelier. Whilst there is some room in front of the bar for vertical drinking, much of the place is occupied by comfortable dining tables and chairs. To the rear and a few steps down is one of two Pie Rooms – the other is on the first floor and appears to still have its original wooden flooring and unpainted panelling – where all tables are exclusively for diners. Pies are, as you might imagine, very much the speciality, with changing monthly specials such as beef & stilton, but the food menu also includes Sunday roasts. There is also a roof terrace with about eight tables with shelter and blankets provided. The pub operator also runs the nearby Guinea Grill and there is kitchen collaboration between the two venues. Please note that no under-16s are allowed on the premises.
