Temple Brew House


Holborn welcomes a microbrewery nipper to its pubbing pastures. 

Temple Brew House is a hop-heavy underground where basement boozing is the name of the game and some serious gluttony comes hand in hand with their menu of smoked, tender and home cooked dishes. 

This subterranean plot is a space of rugged character with stripped back walls adorning hand drawn diagrams detailing the ins and outs of that iconic brewery process, as well as lists of their current beer offerings. The whole place kind of feels like a vintage classroom, with charming wooden chairs and tables mish-mashed around the room and board games scattered between groups of guzzlers. Descend past the shiny steel fermentation tanks and into this cosy den of drinking and dining to experience the rustic edge of this brewpub. 

Hosting hoards of taps with some of the City's best loved brewery brands, the biggest independent labels and legendary world beers from afar, you'll be glugging down the golden good stuff in no time. There's bottles to be reckoned with too, sporting goods all the way from Australia - Temple doesn't mess about when it comes to beer, that's for sure.

Nothing goes down better with a craft beer venture than some hefty helpings of food and their menu is certainly something to marvel at. Dig in to all manner of meaty treats here with in-house smoked foods and fresh produce used throughout. If there's one thing you can count on, it's a feasting frenzy, whether you want to tuck into their big plates or hit up their Brew House Trays where a platter of all the good 'Bits' will materialise in front of you.

  • A word from the chef:

    Our main menu has been seasonally created by our kitchen and events team using lots of fresh local produce and authentic imports. We love to make things using traditional methods: Smoking our own meats and cheeses, slow-roasting joints of meat and sneaking in as much beer to the menu as possible! Our menu is also complemented by daily specials and sandwiches, so if there’s something you’d like to see more of, then please let us know. We like to keep things informal, and there’s no private dining room to hide away in, but tables and areas can be booked seven days a week. We’re always on the lookout for new beers, both in bottle and on tap, so you’ll find an ever changing range available. We also print a weekly bottle list if you want to have a look before you pop down!
