Joshua's Gin Selection

A bar for gin enthusiasts, Joshua’s Tavern serves gin from all over London, the UK and around the world, featuring a vintage collection and terroir-led Gintonicas. Each Gintonica has undergone a careful five-stage pairing process to harmonise and elevate the wealth of flavour coming through.

Sir Joshua Reynolds

“What has pleased and continues to please, is likely to please again”. So said Sir Joshua Reynolds, 18th century portrait artist and Leicester Square local. When visiting our tavern, look out for tributes to his artistry and fondness for liquid luncheons, such as a hand painted mural and a dining receipt from 1788 at Somerset House.

Bill of Fare

Served from 4pm until 10pm, our Bill of Fare offers tavern tid-bits and selections to whet one’s appetite, including traditional cheese-filled biscuits, prosciutto and pecorino truffle popcorn, Philly cheesesteak bites, and more.

Live Music

Joshua’s Tavern will host an eclectic programme of musicians for daily unplugged live music sessions. Stay tuned.
