The Coach and Horses pub represents much that is wonderful about Mayfair: its distinguished history, its conviviality and even its Royal connections.
It is a small yet immensely popular public house: indeed, it seats a maximum of 50 people. Those intending to meet there for some after-work refreshment are advised to leave the office as soon as possible in order to secure a seat!
Patrons of the Coach and Horses love to congregate there for many reasons, not least its genuinely comfortable and cosy atmosphere. This is enhanced by its lighting and décor. Unlike so many of today’s modern, corporate and rather harsh drinking establishments, this pub has warm lighting and traditional furniture.
More tradition can be found in the drinks themselves. There are four monthly changes of cask ales to sample, with the best of British on offer for all to enjoy. Those in search of a restorative lunch or supper will be satiated at the Coach and Horses thanks to the traditional pub food that is served on the first floor.
Its impressive history and Royal connections also make The Coach & Horses an essential stop off for any visitors to Mayfair. The pub was thought to be one of the first properties to be built on Bruton Street. Number 17 Bruton Street was the townhouse of the Earl of Strathmore and it was here that the then Duchess of York, gave birth to Princess Elizabeth, now Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, on 21 April 1926.
