The TWO CHAIRMEN

The Two Chairmen
The TWO CHAIRMEN

The Two Chairmen is thought to be one of the oldest pubs in Westminster and is named for the porters who carried sedan chairs in the 18th century for the gentry to and from the cockfighting near Cockpit Steps, virtually opposite the pub. It is very handy for the Houses of Parliament and St James's Park and tends to be less crowded than the pubs closer to Trafalgar Square.
