The Grenadier, London

#106 of 1,204 in Nightlife in London
The Grenadier is a public house in Belgravia, London. It was originally built in 1720 as the officers' mess for the senior infantry regiment of the British army, the 1st Regiment of Foot Guards and so was located in a courtyard of their barracks. It was opened to the public in 1818 as The Guardsman and was subsequently renamed in honour of the Grenadier Guards' actions in the Battle of Waterloo.
Being secluded in a wealthy district of London, it was frequented in the past by the Duke of Wellington and King George IV, and continues to attract an elite clientele such as Madonna and Prince William, LSE Global Politics students and Alumni of St John's College, Durham University. It is also said to be haunted by the ghost of a subaltern who was beaten to death for cheating at cards.

  • I’m neither living nor vacationing in London, just passing through. I hopped the Heathrow Express to spend my extended layover drinking fine cask ales and sampling some of the best Beef Wellington London has to offer. The Grenadier lived up to my expectations. It’s a great pub, with a very friendly staff and fellow patrons. The food a d drink were excellent. I will be back!
  • Hidden gem. Visited on a Sunday night without reservation and got a table for two in the back. Lovely atmosphere, good for chatting, not too loud. Yummy gin cured salmon, grest fish and chips. Highly recommend this place
