Peaceful respite

From the Hurried London
all around us


A modern tavern serving great food cooked in a state-of-the-art Josper grill (the world’s hottest indoor barbecue).

Across our 14 taps we offer four British cask ales, a variety of German beers plus craft ales from the UK and USA.

Our wine list combines the New World with great value Burgundy and Bordeaux.

We also do a great Negroni!

The architect behind Woburn Walk, Thomas Cubitt, noted the tameness of the hares on his early morning constitutional. After the opening of Woburn Walk, the newly laid paving stones became a magnet for the local hares, who could easily be seen late at night resting peacefully along the walk.

Indeed, famous poet W. B. Yeats who lived on Woburn Walk in the 1920’s, wrote of “A handsome old grey hare taking rest” outside number 6.

Development and increased traffic on the Euston Road had made the crossing too difficult for the hares, and by the start of the 1930’s they had disappeared into history.
