There are currently big plans to introduce food to the bar. This will be lunch times and evenings. However until this happens, we work with a selection of local restaurants who will deliver orders for free. Menus can be found at the bar. On occasion food is provided by Bliss Catering, usually this is in conjunction with long running productions.
The Mahogany Bar was built around 1725, we believe as a public house, trading under many names over the years including The Albion Saloon and The Prince of Denmark.
In 1828 it was luxuriously and elaborately refurbished with a magnificent mahogany bar and fittings which was unprecedented for a pub interior at that time and earned the nick-name that is
still used today. Frequented by the sailing community, the bar’s fame spread to every port across the globe and it was even claimed that visiting sailors may not have heard of St Paul’s Cathedral but they knew exactly where to find The Mahogany Bar. Sadly, the famous fixtures and fittings of this remarkable bar have been stripped away over the years but the atmosphere lingers on.
