Welcome to the Old Shades
Our doors are open and we’re ready to welcome you when you feel ready to return to the pub!
Things may be a little different than before, and we have some new measures to make our customers and our teams feel safe and comfortable.
The Old Shades is an iconic Grade II listed traditional pub on Whitehall, that has been serving the people of London since it was originally built in 1898. Ideally situated in the heart of Westminster, just off Trafalgar Square, we’re the perfect pitstop to experience a proper British pub.
Featuring a characterful bar, dining area and a range of quality British ales, The Old Shades serves a varied menu of the nation’s much-loved pub classics and light bites alongside a wide selection of the finest world wines and premium spirits.
We’d encourage you to book ahead of your visit and download the Young’s On Tap app to order and pay at the table as we have now gone cashless.
