Plumbers Arms

14 Lower Belgrave Street, Belgravia, London, SW1W 0LN

The Plumbers Arms pub is a traditional British London pub in Belgravia 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 Plumbers Arms was built in 1820s. It stands proudly in an area developed by master builder Thomas Cubitt. At the time, Thomas Cubitt was leasing the land from Lord Grosvenor. It owes its name to the small army of plumbers that rose up and that went against Thomas Cubitt, as he was planning to remove the site. They “thronged” the locality of Cubitt’s developments.

The Plumbers Arms used to have two bars and a ‘jug and bottle’- a historical reference to the people of Britain, whom often brewed their own ale at home. This was usually a duty carried out by the head female member of the family, the ‘Brewster’. However, some chose to collect their ales and beers from other houses and premises, with families frequently selling their own ale to less well-equipped neighbours.

Often, this was simply a way of earning some extra income. All of this went on with little or no legal restrictions. The production of ale was also frequently carried out in a communal way, for example by the church, or a larger household, and often at times of celebration or feast. The ales were then distributed within the local community. This ancient practice pre-dated the Romans in Britain by some 3000 years. Permanent ‘ale-houses’ only began to appear in significant numbers during the 13th Century, and from their inception it was common to drink ale either on or off the premises.

The Plumbers Arms is a beautiful pub, suiting its elegant surrounding. During the Victorian era, the Plumbers Arms was so well thought of by locals, that it was even known to be frequented by the English aristocracy. During these times, there was a rigid class distinction. Butlers and tradesmen drank at one bar, whilst grooms and footmen drank at the other bar.

The Plumbers Arms also has more recent fascinating connections; it was the infamous venue that witnessed Lord Lucan's wife bursting in distress over finding the nanny in her home dead.
