William
Nicholson
(1824-1909)
Distiller, Politician,
Cricket Player, Benefactor

This alehouse is part of the Nicholson's Heritage Collection. They're all different, yet they all owe something to the man who founded them. William Nicholson was a Victorian all-rounder — a businessman, MP and sporting hero. He played first-class cricket, ran the family's distilling business, and financed Lord's Cricket Ground and its famous pavilion. In 1873, William revitalised a collection of characterful alehouses, each one an architectural delight with a strong sense of place and individuality. William added craftsmanship — marble tiling, vibrant leaded windows — and his larger-then-life personality. William's influence is lasting. His alehouses are still brimming with warmth, tradition, and timeless hospitality.
