A unique city centre pub with a rich history


Nicholson’s Pubs are known for their individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities — and The Horniman at Hays is certainly no exception.

Our magnificent building is part of the wider Hays Galleria building, a former brew-house dating back to the 17th century. With a glorious centrepiece staircase, marble countertops, and an antique wall clock, The Horniman at Hays was built on the site of what was originally a historic tea dealer’s warehouse. Today, we’re sure you’ll agree that our interiors are not only breathtakingly characteristic, but they also make for a great photo opportunity.
