In the early eighteenth century a pub called the Dog & Duck stood here, its name reflecting the hunting that took place on the surrounding swamps and ponds. The British Museum was built in the 1760's and the pub changed its name to suit.
The pub was expanded in 1855 and much of what we see today dates from then or a little later. Although the partitions that divided Victorian drinkers have gone, much of the carved wooden fittings and etched and cut glass remain.
