The Hercules Pillars


Found minutes away from Holborn Station, The Hercules Pillars is one of our favourite Great Queen Street boozers. Not only are you able to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, but this is an ideal stop-off for sporting antics. Whether you're a rugby or footie fan, you can expect plenty of showing on top-notch screens.

On the hunt for budget-friendly plates? This hotspot has got you covered. From daily happy hours to 2 for 1 on fish 'n' chips every Friday, you'll certainly going to be bagging a good deal. That's not all, as this pub also offers a fabulous range of entertainment, making it an ideal location for chowing down on grub all while watching live music.
