The Lord Napier has closed, although this may be temporary. It been a Young's pub since Victorian times, becoming famous for jazz in the late 1960s; at one time it was 'London's premier jazz pub' with many famous musicians appearing. The Jazz tradition continued more recently on Thursday evenings and Sunday lunchtimes. The single bar is decorated in a jazz theme, opening into the music venue with doors either side of the real fire.
