The History: On the 2nd October 1872, Phileas J. Fogg, Esq. embarked upon his journey around the world. He had wagered with fellow members of the Reform Club that he would be quite able to complete this trip within eighty days. They thought him mad, but Fogg was quite the gambling man. He was well-versed in the game of whist and not one who enjoyed losing… nor to be found wrong. He was, therefore, determined to prove them wrong and complete his trip around the world in eighty days. Located on the corner of New Row and St. Martin’s Lane, Mr Fogg’s Tavern lies in the heart of theatre-land. Left by Fogg’s late Aunt Gertude to her loyal housekeeper Fanny McGee, her home has been transformed into a haven for art lovers and theatre folk to enjoy a selection of snacks and delicious tipples.
The pub serves delicious food. Every day from 12pm to 3pm, enjoy a simple yet scrumptious lunchtime offer: a filling sandwich and a side of chips for £12. Or, peruse the regular lunch menu for delectable burgers and other delightful dishes. Each location in the Mr Fogg’s Collection has its own signature cocktail menu to explore for those feeling adventurous. There is something for everyone at Mr Fogg’s Tavern.

The full venue (including the stunning and eccentric upstairs gin parlour) is available for hire for up to 130 guests, making it the perfect spot for a birthday, work party or any other celebration!
