Did you know?

It’s not just a name… Joshua’s Tavern was inspired by Sir Joshua Reynolds, the 18th century Londoner and portrait artist who once lived here on Leicester Square. Rumour has it he was fond of a good meal and a refreshing libation, which we have done our best to honour at Joshua’s Tavern. The hand painted murals, beautifully imagined by design studio En Viu, depicts scenes of silliness and drunken debauchery – see if you can spot the prolific painter on your next visit…
