The Culpeper in London’s Aldgate and comprises of:
- Ground floor: Pub
- 1st Floor: Restuarant
- 2nd Floor: Bedrooms
- Roof: Terrace and Garden
The Culpeper is the perfect spot to start your day. With a traditional English pub offering a great selection of real ales, a menu of traditional British pub food and fantastic views over the city, there’s no place better for a relaxed day and evening out with family and friends. One of the most unique drinking establishments in Central London.
It used to be called the Princess Alice (One of Queen Victoria’s first children to die). Probably not the best name for a pub and doubly cursed as there is a similarly named bar about a 5 minutes walk away. The Culpeper was named after Nicholas Culpeper, the famous herbalist who only lived a hundred metres from the area in the 27th century.
The moment you walk into the interior of the pub you immediately notice a sense of warmth and atmosphere; the quiet and friendly staff, the cosy crowd, the warm lighting and the rich wood interior. The place is the hub of a social scene that is refined, welcoming and undeniably cool. The intimate interior provides a welcoming space for large groups of friends to drink their selection of continental draught lagers and locally bottled beers or share a bottle of wine or a glass of prosecco.
On the first floor is their popular restaurant. The ambience is warm and welcoming, and the decor is bright and cheery. The amazing menu selection is a mix of traditional fancy favourites and modern twists of three entrees, mains and desserts. For those who like to linger over a good drink and a large plate of food, this is the place to go. So if you’re looking to shift scenery and are looking for somewhere to eat, you don’t have far to go to taste the fresh food that The Culpeper serves.
On the second floor, The Culpeper Bedrooms offers cosy double bedroom settings with a continental or Full English/Irish breakfast for couples. Also, all rooms at the hotel are fitted with a seating area and a flat-screen TV. The rooms have a private bathroom with a shower and a hairdryer. The guests (particularly couples) love the location and they have rated the place 9.5 for a two-person trip.
On the third floor, The Rooftop has its own bar which serves their signature cocktails; a bespoke grill from the London Log Company; an intimate 12 to 14 seater glass Greenhouse where you can relax, drink and eat under the London sun, shine, rain and stars. The rooftop garden also presents an amazing view of The Square Mile skyline and you have the advantage of looking deeper into the heavens due to one of the regular rooftop astronomy events.
