Local information

  • The property is located in Clerkenwell, which is an area of central London approximately 1.5 miles northwest of Charing Cross. Clerkenwell sits between Farringdon, Holborn and Chancery Lane to the south, Russell Square, Oxford Street, Euston to the west, King’s Cross and Islington to the north and Old Street, Liverpool Street and the City of London to the East.
  • Clerkenwell was once known as London’s “Little Italy” because of the large number of Italians living in the area between the 1850s and the 1960s. A general revival and gentrification process began in the 1990s, and the area is now known for young professionals, nightclubs, restaurants and art galleries. It also houses many professional and business offices as an overspill area for the nearby City of London and West End. Amongst other sectors, there is a notable concentration of design professions around Clerkenwell, and supporting industries such as high-end designer furniture showrooms, with many of London’s leading architectural practices located in the area.
  • More specifically the property is located at the junction of Mount Pleasant and Warner Street with the immediate area comprising a mixture of residential and commercial property. The Mount Pleasant Mail Centre is located opposite the pub and is one of Royal Mail’s busiest sites, generating around 2,000 vehicle movements per day. Royal Mail have consolidated their sorting office allowing for the redevelopment of the site into a mixed use residential-led scheme which is almost complete.
