The Great Train Robbery was planned in this pub...allegedely

Location: 6 Belgrave Mews West, SW1X 8HT

Description: Now this is another one of those legendary London pubs where you can soak up the vibes of crimes past, while munching through some dry roasted...

It was in this early 19th Century pub that London gangland used to rear its dangerous head in the 1950s and 1960s - indeed - it was in the upstairs bar that one of the greatest crimes of the 20th Century was allegedly planned...

The Great Train Robbery.

Worth a look in then - plus it boasts leaded stained glass Victorian fireplaces and art deco lights.
