Nicholson's Pubs

Dog and Duck, Soho


Attracting famous faces since 1897

Our Grade II listed building in Soho has a fascinating history.

Although the pub was originally built in 1734 on the site of the Duke of Monmouth’s home, the building that houses us today was built in 1897 by the architect Francis Cannon.

Inside, you’ll still find many of the original features, including thousands of beautiful, glazed tiles, mahogany panelling, and decorative mirrors - it’s easy to see why we’re considered to have one of London’s most exquisite interiors of the period.

And we’ve attracted our fair share of famous faces over the years. George Orwell celebrated with a glass of absinthe when his book Animal Farm was selected for the American Book of the Month Club, John Constable and Dante Gabriel Rossetti both visited, and pop icon Madonna once popped in for a pint!
