A Film & Art-Nouveau Den

A great looking pub and star of Brit Film 'Maurice' back in 1987

Location: 174 Queen Victoria Street, EC4V 4EG

Description: 'Maurice' was a 1987 British film based on the novel of the same title by E. M. Forster.

It is a tale of homosexual love in early 20th century England, following its main character Maurice Hall from his school days through university until he is united with his life partner.

The film stars James Wilby as Maurice, Hugh Grant as Clive and Rupert Graves as Alec. The supporting cast included Denholm Elliott as Dr Barry, Simon Callow as Mr Ducie, Billie Whitelaw as Mrs Hall and Ben Kingsley as Lasker-Jones.

The marvellous art-nouveau drinking den scene, where Maurice and Clive's aristocratic pal Lord Risley runs into problems when he tries to indulge his taste for the military, is the 'Black Friar' (this pub), at 174 Queen Victoria Street, EC4, just across the road from Blackfriars railway station.
