The London Tavern re-opened in January 2022 and has available up to four real ales and at least nine craft beers. There are plans to also include a focus on coffee plus wines, and it is hoped to open the kitchen in March 2022. Hannah Nyangon manages the pub on behalf of Tiny Dancer Group, which runs a number of pubs and bars.

It is a two storey 18th century hostelry with two late 19th century single-storey extensions was formerly known as the Shakespeare Tavern and from 1858 until the early 1990s as the London Tavern after which it was the Everybody's Inn. It is situated across the road from the Theatre Royal and its association with it is indeed long lived, with many famous Thespians agonizing over their lines in the bar.
