Welcome to The Magpie in Bishopsgate London

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A unique city centre pub with a rich history

The site of our pub was an ambulance station at the beginning of the 20th Century, but its place in history was secured when one of the first electric ambulances was stationed here in 1909. At night time and Sundays this one vehicle served the entire city. We are just off Bishopsgate, a street named after the Bishop's Gate, which stood opposite Camomile Street.
