A fascinating past

Said to hold the oldest excise licence in the City, our original tavern has a distinguished history. We were originally a residence for the Lord Mayors of London, and William III and Mary dined here. The original pub dates to the 17th Century, not long after the Great Fire of London and we were rebuilt in the 1930s our 'new' interior reflects the style of that period.

One of a kind

Williamson's Tavern 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.
