The Tipperary, London's "oldest" Irish pub in the City is reopening with a complete makeover

The Tipperary is coming back - the classic Irish pub in the City is getting a complete makeover

26/3/24 - updated with opening details

It's been closed since 2020 but now the pub that's touted as being London's oldest Irish pub, although that claim is contested, is coming back.

Long a City haunt - there's been a pub on this spot since the 15th century with the current building dating back to just after the Great Fire of London -  The Tipperary was forced to close during the height of the pandemic, at a time when the city was something of a ghost town due to home working. There was even something of a scandal as vintage items from the pub were scheduled for an auction in Dublin but rescued at the last minute.

With things much more back to normal, it's been picked up by Dominus, who until now have been best known for student accommodation in the City as well as building hotels for the likes of Hilton. They've restored it to its former glory and will be running it themselves as an independent pub.

Talking to Dominus, we've been told a fair bit of work was needed to bring the four-storey pub back to its former glories, with the downstairs pub being the first to open. A few new additions are in place too, like a big covered area for outside seating right next to the pub, and apparently a florist too (judging by the photo). Food is planned, but until that's up and running they will have Tayto and King crisps on offer. 

Much more is being planned and we've also heard that there are plans to add a first-floor whiskey bar.
