The Hercules Pillars is a charming traditional English pub that can be found minutes away from Holborn Station. This pub is perfect if you're in the mood for a classic English dish to pair with a real cask of ale. You can sit back and relax from the hustle and bustle of London and enjoy the old wooden furnishings and surround yourself in the smell of homemade food and draught beer. 

They serve traditional pub food seven days a week and have happy hours every night, so there's something to look forward to before your journey home. Catering to all tastes, they serve pub classics like Fish & Chips and pies plus a range of speciality sausages.

They also have a spacious function room which can hold up to 100 people which is ideal for a birthday party, anniversary or engagement and with it being in a prime location it seems perfect for any occasion. So if you're looking for a place to escape the madness of the city, or want to chill out after a long day at work, The Hercules Pillars is the ideal hideaway for you to enjoy a nice cold pint.

Went here the other day and I loved the classic pub vibe. The food was really good and it was a nice place to chill out in and catch up friends.
