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.

Hearty British menu . Real ales & fine wines
3 floors for group bookings and parties . Coffees, teas, & free wi-fi

Try our Magpie & Stump own-blend coffee (100% Arabica, roasted in Scotland)
