The Hand & Racquet
Tony Hancock, Sid James and Tommy Cooper's old local.
Location: 48 Whitcomb Street, WC2H
Description: The real historic interest of this place lies in the fact that it was formerly the regular haunt of the likes of Tony Hancock, Sid James, Tommy Cooper and Galton and Simpson...what a bozzer!
It's named from Charles II's tennis court which used to be around the corner, and has a tenuous racquet theme inside.
Sadly it's been closed for the past few months.
