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?
Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer everything you’d expect to find on any respectable, British pub menu, and so much more besides. Boasting an array of delicious sharers, through to classic main dishes, and succulent burgers, there’s a selection to suit every appetite.
Doggett's Coat and Badge is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of iconic and great British pubs — held in the highest of regards for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
