Welcome to the Old Shades
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.
This year we celebrate Young’s 190th birthday, and we’d love to celebrate yours too! To mark this special birthday we’re giving away thousands of complimentary drinks up until 16th September, head to the ‘My Treats’ section of our app, On Tap, to see if you have been rewarded with a cheeky birthday tipple on us.
