You will find The Bear and Staff in Leicester Square London within a short stroll of Leicester Square Tube, Charing Cross Road and Trafalgar Square - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

The Bear and Staff pub has stood here since 1714, the name coming from the crest of the Neville Family. The pub counts villains and celebrities in its considerable history. One landlord lost his licence on proof of Sunday trading and robbery! The current building, dating from 1878, was once frequented by Charlie Chaplin and our restaurant is named in his honour.

The Bear and Staff is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
