London History

.’. The Bell, Book and Candle .’.

This pub belonged to the Eerie Pub Company chain of horror-themed pubs, but now the Punch Taverns changed the name for Ye Old London.

A bell, a book and a candle are the tree items, which are needed for an exorcism to drive out evil spirits from possessed person or place.

The Pub claims it sits upon ancient Roman foundations and that, over the years, this site has housed a sanatorium, a church crypt, a workhouse and a debtor’s prison.

The Pub’s gruesome links with suffering and brutality, combined with its spooky designed interior and “graveyard garden”, make it an ideal place to stop for a drink.
