A hearty welcome to our website – and to The Tower Tavern itself.
We’re tucked away in a quiet street in the heart of Fitzrovia, north of Oxford Street, and if you get lost, head for a local landmark; at 190 meters tall, it’s hard to miss the BT Tower.
And that, of course, is what we’re named after – nothing to do with that slightly older Tower on the other side of town!
In fact we like to think that our customers get a friendlier welcome than those heading into ‘the other’ Tower, because – that’s the sort of pub The Tower Tavern is.
London is famous for being a collection of ‘villages’ and we certainly feel that we’re a real local in our part of town, a gathering place for regulars, passers-by and anyone in need of a drink and a meal in a part of the capital that many think of as being a little gem of hidden London.
That said, with its glistening white tile exterior – designed in the ‘brutalist’ style popular in the 50s and 60s and still completely original, both inside and out – The Tower Tavern certainly isn’t hidden, being just a short walk away from the thriving restaurant quarter around Charlotte Street and Goodge Place.
Our regulars tell us they keep coming because the Tower is a relaxing place to eat, drink and be merry. We don’t pretend to be a trendy wine bar, nor are we gastro pub or an artisan micro-brewery, just a proper pub with a good range of both keg and real ales and decent food, whether it’s a bar snack or a proper lunch. Indeed, our ‘Chicken Wednesdays’ complete with a packed pub full of hungry drinkers ordering buckets of buffalo wings have now become something of a tradition in these parts.
So, if you’re hungry, or thirsty, or both , and in your our part of town, head for the white place that is The Tower Tavern where you’ll be away from the hustle of the tourist traps, but just a few minutes from one of London’s most vibrant areas.
