Nicholson’s Pubs are known for their individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities — and Doggett’s Coat and Badge is certainly no exception.
Our visitors are often fascinated by our unusual name, and the story behind it doesn’t disappoint. The pub is named after Thomas Doggett, the organiser of the London Bridge to Chelsea rowing race (Oxford-Cambridge) along the Thames. Winners of the boat race would be awarded a coat and badge — hence “Doggett’s Coat and Badge”.
So, as you enjoy the views from here across the river to St Paul’s, the Old Bailey, Shell Mex House, Somerset House and much of central London, why not get a drink and enjoy a little living of your own?
