Perfect place for meeting with friends. It has a really upbeat atmosphere. On a warm evening people spill outside and enjoy the London outdoors.

A real find for both pizza and beer. There was a small choice of pizza and an Insalata pizza was chosen. It arrived freshly prepared and cooked within about 10 minutes, piping hot. There were several different meat toppings on a soft pizza base. Delicious...More

Amazing food, staff is super friendly, first British pub experience for our kids and they adored the place! Delicious fish and chips but the best is definitely the Bangers&Mash.

Hi, I'm sorry felt my response was unfriendly, but I only said it was going to be very crowded and uncomfortable that evening. And also said we welcome families when the place isn't so crazy during December evenings.

Four of us went for Sunday lunch to the Perseverance yesterday. We had excellent service, good wine, good food, no music (what a rarity and what a treat) - proper pub setting in one of the nicest and least spoilt parts of central London. Pizzas,...More

The Perseverance is very much a pub serving the local community of Lambs Conduit Street in Bloomsbury. A lot of local workers from the various neighbouring hospitals drink in here, together with nearby dwellers, and, of course, some tourists. It’s a good and noisy and...More

It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

The Perseverance is a rare Free of Tie pub in Bloomsbury near Holborn and Russell Square tube stations. We have a wide choice of drinks available including some fine wines selected by Philip at Albion Wine Shippers, our local wine supplier just across the street. We specialise in craft beers and lagers and have some great beers from London brewers like Camden and The Kernel and some from a little further afield like WoodenHand in Cornwall and Brewdog in Scotland.
