THE STORY OF The Marquis Cornwallis

Dating back to the 1800s, The Marquis Cornwallis is one of Bloomsbury’s most established watering holes and enduring popular with workers, residents and visitors alike. Mixing period features with contemporary touches, The Marquis Cornwallis is an ideal spot to relax and socialise after a hard day’s graft, as well as an excellent meeting point on account of its nearby transport links. On milder days, take a pew on the on-street terrace and watch the world go by whilst sipping a glass of something special.   

Just a few moments’ walk from Russell Square tube station The Marquis Cornwallis is perched on a street corner in the centre of Bloomsbury, surrounded by peaceful garden squares and some of London’s most prestigious museums, including the British Museum and British Library. This friendly pub is within easy reach of the rest of the capital.  

Attracting a diverse clientele, The Marquis Cornwallis reflects the ‘relaxed with a touch of refined’ vibe of its Bloomsbury neighbourhood and holds the authenticity of a true British local close to its heart.
