With so many options just a stone’s throw from the station, those lucky enough to work in Liverpool Street needn’t even leave the area.

Check out this list of the best pubs near Liverpool Street to plan your next work night out.

Hamilton Hall


There’s nothing better than a pint at Wetherspoons, where the atmosphere is always chilled and the dent in your pocket is pretty minor.

And since it’s based in the station concourse, it’s the perfect location for after-work drinks before you catch the train home.

Railway Tavern



Since Wetherspoons tops the list, it only makes sense that a Greene King should come in close second.

This is a real commuter’s pub, and there’s even outside seating for those after-work summer evenings or early Friday finishes.


Dirty Dicks



The traditional decor and nostalgic menu has made this pub a popular spot for tourists, but city commuters also flock here for a night out with colleagues.

You can share a ploughman’s board with Sussex charmer, Suffolk chorizo, sausage rolls, hand-raised pork pie, pickled onions, apple, Branston pickle and artisan bread, or stick to the classics with a battered cod and chips or slow-cooked lamb stew.





Hidden down a narrow passage away from the hustle and bustle of Liverpool Street there’s a pub that, at first, looks like a shop front.

Inside there’s a cellar dining room with exposed brick walls and wooden panelling that give the place a warm atmosphere, with an extensive wine list and menu to match.

The Astronomer



You can sit in a snug booth inside a exposed brick archway with atmospheric lighting and an interesting decor of historic portraits and telescopes.

It’s just a stone’s throw from Liverpool Street station and is an elegant option for evening drinks and seasonal roast dinners.

Davy’s Wine Bars



Davy’s is a chain of wine bars, so if the Liverpool Street one takes your fancy you can pop into one all over London.

It’s right inside the station so it makes the perfect pit-stop before the commute home. And their wine tasting events would make a great work party event.


The Lord Aberconway



This pub dates back to the 19th century and is supposedly haunted. some say the spirits are those of the victims of the Great Fire of London.

If you can brave the ghosts, the chain is a speciality sausage and chop house, so you should head here if you’re after a sausage and mash main.

Simmons Bar



If you’re heading for a night out this might be the best pub to get the night started. The bar is decorated with a beach bar style and decorated with neon lighting on the walls.

You can admire their quirky, vintage decor or head out to the beer garden to make the most of their epic five hour Happy Hour specials from 4pm.

The Magpie



The site of the pub was an ambulance station at the beginning of the 20th Century, but its place in history was secured when one of the first electric ambulances was stationed here in 1909.

At night time and Sundays this one vehicle served the entire city, and it still does – only now it serves up pints and traditional pub food main courses.


The Water Poet



This pub can suit any after-work needs, with spaces including dining rooms, an enormous beer garden, a pool parlour and a cinema.

And with a menu covering all the pub lunch basics, an award-winning Sunday roast and a vegan section, this really is a people-pleaser of a pub.

The White Horse


If you fancy heading out even before the end of the work day, The White Horse claims to be the place to linger over a delicious breakfast or take a well-earned lunch away from your desk.

If you want to take in the buzz of Liverpool Street on a Friday night, their terrace overlooking Exchange Square makes a great al-fresco dining spot, decked out with heaters and blankets to weather all weather.
