Traditional Local Pub in the Heart of Holborn | The Old Nick, London

Welcome to the Old Nick Pub

A traditional and friendly London local pub in Holborn

In the very heart of Holborn’s legal and media district, the Old Nick has been servicing the needs of lawyers, barristers, advertising executives and media production companies for many years. Originally called the Three Cups, there has been a pub on the site since 1766 and indeed one rumour has it that it was renamed after a local barrister who uses the pub as his ‘chambers’ and accounts for a hefty percentage of the pub’s sales.

Our priority is to reopen our pub in a safe and controlled way for our guests and team. 

It is our intention to reopen as soon as we are able to do so, but this will be dependent on our final preparations to make you and our team safe and comfortable. 

We cannot wait to have you visit after such a long period of closure. Please keep an eye on our website for further details of our exact reopening date  and what you can expect.
