Midtown’s Hidden Gem: The Square Pig in Holborn re-opens

The highly-anticipated Holborn hot-spot, The Square Pig, has now re-opened its well-polished doors after an extensive refurbishment. Situated on the corner of Holborn Square right in heart of the capital, the pub is the perfect place to unwind from a hectic day in the office with a drink in one hand and delicious dish from the new menu in the other.

160921_0105Can’t decide between a pub or a bar? The Square Pig provides both, with its classic pub setting bursting with atmosphere every evening, and its smart downstairs cocktail bar.

The Square Pig fulfils all those local boozer cravings with its casual contemporary new look. Enjoy a few drinks at the high repurposed-wood tables surrounded by tartan-topped seating, or sink into racing green leather banquettes. People watching is made even easier with the large windows that line the walls. Vibrant artwork depicting Holborn’s varied history and mixology links are also sure to catch your eye in this light and airy space.

Follow the illuminated steps downwards and discover a hidden speakeasy bar filled with herb-infused gin decanters and hanging martini glasses. Take your seat in the teal, black or dark brown leather booths and relax on the plush mustard cushions. Contemporary light fixtures with hints of gold add a modern touch to the decadent space. Head back upstairs and find an extensive decked area outside, complete with hanging lights and fresh plants – a rare find in buzzy Holborn!


The Square Pig’s new diner-inspired menu hosts tasty light bites and mains designed for a quick working lunch or dinner with friends. Kick things off with sharing dishes, including the unique Tunada Rollnada (seared sashimi tuna, smashed avocado, roquito peppers and tomato, with a touch of coriander and chipotle lime), creamy Jalapeño Poppers with Black Pepper Ranch Dressing and the ultimate Nachos – choose from succulent smoky pulled pork or BBQ steak loaded with tomato and coriander salsa, gouda drip, spring onions, sour cream and jalapeños.
