An English pub with a very long history. We've been around for more than 500 years.
In the 1700s the Magpie & Stump was one of the most renowned mughouses in London. Back in those days guests would visit for a pint of Two'penny ale (served in their own mug) & a prime view of the hanging outside Newgate Prison. We would even send out a last pint to the condemned man before his execution.
In the 1950s the Magpie & Stump affectionately became known as Courtroom No 10
- a gathering place for detectives and reporters to discuss the trial of the day at the Old Bailey
over a traditional lunch of chop n chips.
