Ben Crouches Tavern
Once a Gothic pub steeped in Vampire History
Location: 77a Wells Street, Fitzrovia, W1P 3QP
Description: Once one of the eeriest gothic pubs in London, what marked the 'Ben Crouches Tavern' out from the other pubs in the chain was the London Vampire Group Meetings on the 2nd Thursday of every month.
The Ben Crouches Tavern was named after an infamous London graverobber of the early 1800's, who was the son of a hospital caretaker.
Alas now it is called the 'Adam and Eve' public house and they dont cater for vampires any more!
But it was good once!
