A fascinating past

The Mudlark gets its name from the 18th Century practice of scavenging the muddy Thames riverside for coal, bits of old iron, and any other loot that may have fallen from passing ships. Mudlarks were usually children and almost always destitute. For years our historic pub has been a favourite with the market traders of Borough Market, the oldest fruit and vegetable market in London.

One of a kind

The Mudlark 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.
