Pubs

As Londoners, at Cozee we are deeply attached to our weekly attendance to our local pub. Why should you be different in the place where you are going to live? That is why we have been testing and reviewing all the pubs in High Holborn. As a matter of fact, we didn’t… But we would have loved to. Here is then the list of the greatest pubs of High Holborn

Pub name Name Address Description
Cittie Of Yorke 22 High Holborn London WC1V 6BN A Grade II listed building and a CAMRA Heritage Pub. A pub has been on this site since 1430,; a coffee house in the C17, the brick cellars may be from this era. However, the main splendour, the rear room, comes from a 1923/4 rebuild as a romantic evocation of Olde Englande. A large cubic clock and bright copper sign stand out above street level; grand entrance doors lead to a long corridor, ornate plaster ceiling with Yorkshire rose bosses. Off the corridor a comfortable lounge; the cellar bar with food servery; and the back bar, a great timber hall with high pitched roof, long bar, carved wooden booths (or carrels), some huge, ornamental vats above of some antiquity and an unusual, triangular island stove, (maybe) from Napoleonic era.
Craft Beer Co. Covent Garden 168 High Holborn London WC1V 7AA Rebuilt in 1961 as part of Oasis swimming pool. After many years as a fairly indifferent pub it was acquired by Craft in 2014 and, as with many of their pubs, offers a huge and regularly changing range of cask and craft beers. Situated in the ancient parish of St Giles, whose church featured in several of Hogarth’s etches, including Gin Lane; it being on the north-eastern edge of Covent Garden will probably have a more modern resonance.
Old Red Lion 72 High Holborn London WC1V 6LS A traditional, main-street, corner pub serving mainly office and legal weekday community. Clean and comfortable surroundings, but with no tables downstairs you need to grab a bar stool or stand. Tables and chairs upstairs in Cromwell Bar (plaque on wall outside claims that in 1658 cellars hid body of Oliver Cromwell).
Penderel’s Oak 286-288 High Holborn London WC1V 7HJ In Sept 2022 Spoons announced this pub lease as being for sale.
Princess Louise 208 High Holborn London WC1V 7EP A splendidly preserved pub displaying some of the finest examples of the Victorian art of public house building. Built in 1872 the interior includes marble, etched windows, enormous engraved and gilt mirrors, Portland stone columns, an ornate crimson and gold ceiling and a huge central island bar. The gent’s loos are worth a visit for more than the usual reason.
Square Pig 30-32 Procter Street London WC1V 6NX Closed for a period for a facelift which includes a larger outside terrace with heated awning and tables and chairs on decking facing Red Lion Square Gardens. Cask beer has returned in the form of a house beer from Greene King.
