Location and contact

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.

Absolutely great time at The Perseverance. Pizzas are great and fantastic value for money in central London. Staff were also brilliant (but wouldn’t trust Tomas’ wine selection - but definitely ask Emma). All in all a great pub!

This is an interesting street, especially for men's clothes shops. Whilst I was visiting, I dropped in for a quick drink. I liked the atmosphere and everyone seemed to be having a good time. Good beers and friendly staff
