Famous for a secret tunnel connecting the pub to a nearby theatre

You will find The Argyll Arms in Oxford Circus London within a short stroll of Oxford Circus Tube, Oxford Street and Great Marlborough Street - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A fascinating past

Completed in 1742, our Grade II listed pub is named after the second Duke of Argyll, who lived in a mansion where the Palladium now stands. Rumour has it that a secret tunnel once connected the pub to the duke's mansion. The pub you see today provides a fascinating social and historical narrative thanks to its Victorian 'snug' areas built to separate the social classes.

One of a kind

The Argyll Arms is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
