The Only Running Footman

The Only Running Footman

This pub has been voted by our readers as one of the best in Mayfair. See the full list of winners here.

Previously named I Was The Only Running Footman, it's hard to imagine this pub being able to exist anywhere but Mayfair.
The mildly intimidating front doors look like they'll admit you to someone's hallway, and if you're brave enough to try one you'll find a quirky little pub split in two. Half of the floor area is given over to restaurant-style tables, the rest is a regular pub with a few seats around the front bay window. Two floors of dining rooms live above, where you can enjoy the Mayfair-priced fare of a menu of long words.
Beers are unexceptional but the wine list is epic, ranging from a regular bottle of £19.95 plonk to a 1990 Chateau Palmer 3eme Cru Classe, from Margaux, France, for £375.
Rather incongruously there's a TV showing 24-hour news and a photo of Jimi Hendrix on the wall towards the toilets. A peculiar pub, pure Mayfair.
