Unrivalled & historical

One of the few remaining traditional British pubs left in London (and we intend to stay that way), the Morpeth Arms is a pub built in 1845 on the site of the original prison cells of Millbank Penitentiary, which is now home to the art museum Tate Britain.

The Morpeth Arms is part of a great line up of buildings along historic Millbank in Westminster, neighbouring Millbank Tower, Thames House and directly opposite MI6.

The pub is rumoured to be haunted by prisoners and prison staff from the Penitentiary. Pop in and see if you can see the ghost on our live CCTV feed of our spooky cellar!

Don’t take my word for it, come in and try for yourself and if you get stuck, ask one of the team for their favourites.

Haunted Spirits

Morpeth's Past

Not all is what it seems on the surface at the Morpeth Arms. Lurking beneath the pub in our basement is a corridor of holding cells that are rumoured to be haunted by prisoners and prison workers from the nearby Millbank Penitentiary. Prisoners were led from their cells through underground tunnels to the lock up underneath the pub, where they were kept whilst they waited to board convict ships or the floating prisons, ready to take them to the land down under! #oldschoolpunishment #moderndaytreat

Ever heard the term POM? Wondered what it actually means? We have heard loads of explanations, but the one we like and believe to be true is P.O.M- Prisoner of Millbank. The Morpeth Arms, a place to drink, a place to eat and a place steeped in history! #morethanjustapub

Morpeth Arms


Sophisticated and Stylish

A sophisticated and stylish room made for socialising. Situated on the first floor (no more hidden gems, I promise) with stunning views over the River Thames, the room gets its name from the famous MI6 across the water.

The sophistication and style comes from the room being themed on 1920’s secret agent and exotic dancer- Mata Hari. Perfect for almost any occasion, it would take a true secret agent to sniff out a room like this!

We even have our own sets of binoculars hanging from the windows so you can spy on the spies!
