A historic London pub

Small but perfectly formed, the Tom Cribb is a cosy, characterful spot with plenty of personality - not to mention excellent beers.

Located directly opposite the Harold Pinter Theatre, our pub is naturally buzzing on show nights, but it’s also a popular stop-off for visitors to the National Portrait Gallery, and tourists exploring the bright lights of Piccadilly. (Our nearest tube stations are Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square).

The pub can even claim to be one of the area’s attractions itself. It’s named after British bare-knuckle champion boxer, Tom Cribb, who fought between 1805 and 1811, and later became the publican here.

Raise a glass to a boxing legend

An English Heritage plaque outside pays tribute to Cribb, one of the greatest boxers of all time, while the pub’s interior commemorates its boxing heritage.

There’s also a plaque dedicated to Bill Richmond, a slave-turned-boxer who became the world’s first black sports superstar, and whose career was inextricably linked to Cribb's.

Why not raise a glass to these boxing legends, as you enjoy a couple of rounds of your own? After a larger celebration? Book our function room today.
