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 Lord Aberconway is certainly no exception.

Previously known as The King and Keys, The Refreshment Room and The Railway Buffet, our pub dates back to the 19th Century, where it was rebuilt and fondly named after the last chairman of the old Metropolitan Railway.

Our historic pub is supposedly haunted, and some say the spirits are those of the victims of the Great Fire of London; the Monument to the Great Fire stands nearby.
