Bow St Tavern

Description

In the heart of Covent Garden sits Bow Street Tavern, one of London's most historical pubs. 

Located opposite the Royal Opera House the pub serves classic British meals until late, offers an extensive gin collection in their Gin Terrace, and is also a proud supporter of London breweries, giving punters a great selection of beers and ales to choose from. Don't miss the fantastic roof terrace where you can relax in the sun with friends and enjoy a tipple or two.

The pub was established in 1763 and has been witness to some very historical events, most notably the birth of the Bow Street Runners - the group considered to be the first British police force. Not only did the pub serve as their local, it even holds a cell in the basement which was used to hold prisoners.
