Pub name Name Address Description
Plough 27 Museum Street London WC1A 1LH A Victorian corner pub built in 1855, located near the British Museum and Holborn’s many transport links. It has an attractive exterior with large windows to the front; hanging baskets in summer decorate the outdoor seating area in front. The carpeted front bar is furnished traditionally with an over bar glass shelf, settles, tables and chairs, etched glass windows, red walls and plush curtains. Although there is a plasma TV here, it is the long, wood panelled rear bar with two screens that is principally sports oriented. The attractive upstairs function room, usually open to the public, has large windows offering views of Bloomsbury. Traditional pub food is served. It also retains the old Taylor Walker name in the etched windows and bar mirror.

Now has a Spitfire handpump on the ground floor as well as one in the basement badged as Old Wallop which will be the same beer. In the downstairs bar the Davy’s formula of sawdust and candles prevails. Beer sold in pewter pots and although cheaper by the four pint jug, it still remains expensive. The light interior has stone flagged floors with dark wood round tables and chairs, some armchairs and light wood panelling. Unobtrusive background music. The accent is very much on food and wine. There is a large outdoor seating area in a Georgian yard surrounded by local boutiques and shops. Food is served 11.00 – 15.30 and 17.00 – 20.30 Mon – Fri, 11.00 – 15.00 Sat.
