About Bag O`Nails


Historic Grade II listed pub with original features and beer garden in Victoria, London. Selling cask ale and classic pub food a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace. Take in the history and enjoy the family-friendly and dog-friendly setting. Originally licensed in 1775, the Bag O’Nails was formerly known as the ‘Devil & Bag O’Nails’. A relatively common pub name at the time, the original sign would have depicted a scene inspired by Roman mythology, featuring a satyr or ‘devil’ as it looked to be with its pointed ears and cloven feet, and drunken folk called Bacchanals, celebrating the Roman god of wine, Bacchus. Over time it’s not hard to see how ‘Bacchanals’ became ‘Bag O’Nails’ with a little cockney artistic licence! Rebuilt in 1838 as part of the development of Belgravia by Grosvenor Estates, the pub retains its charming traditional atmosphere. Popular with locals and tourist alike, the Bag O’Nails is the ideal place to relax and enjoy a pint of expertly-brewed real ale and a plate of British comfort food.
