The 18th century pub located in Soho quite near the center of Oxford Street, would not attract the eye from the first site, but it is still worth a visit for the sake of a very beautiful interior. The pub was opened in 1742 and named after the Duke of Argyll whose house stood near and nowadays was turned into Palladium Theater. According to rumors circulating throughout the city, the pub was connected to the mansion of the Duke with the underground passage, so that he could come and go unnoticed with companions and mistresses. In the Victorian era in there was a glass partition in the pub halls separating more famous visitors from the middle class, that in our time makes the pub very cozy and worthy of visiting not only for its beautiful patterned glass and dark wood, but also for a good selection of ales and classic English pub menu.
