Greencoat Boy

2 Greencoat Place, Victoria, London, SW1P 1PJ

The Greencoat Boy pub is a traditional British London pub in Victoria serving great freshly cooked traditional pub food. We also serve a fantastic range of beers from around the world, warming red and crisp white wines and a fantastic selection of spirits.

The Greencoat Boy was built toward the end of the 19th century and epitomises Victorian design at its very best. The building is situated a stone’s throw away from Westminster Abbey and two stones from Buckingham Palace.

The pub commemorates the Green Coat Hospital School in Tothill fields. Established in 1633, the School was so called from the colour of the children's clothes. It was confirmed and constituted by letters patent from King Charles I., November 15th in that year, as a school for the relief of the poor fatherless children of St. Margaret's, Westminster. The King gave approximately £50 every year towards the support. When the school was rebuilt in 1700, the celebrated Doctor Busby was a liberal benefactor to the funds necessary for that purpose. The management is vested in twenty governors, and the children are clothed, educated, and wholly maintained by the funds in the possession of the governors.

In more recent times, it plays host to the likes of channel 4 personalities who pop in for a pint from the studios that its round the corner. If you are lucky, you may share a jar with Alex Zain or even Ben Sheppard.
