Samuel Pepys



The Samuel Pepys was situated at 48 Upper Thames Street. This pub has now been converted to flats.
This large City pub and restaurant overlooks the river and is dedicated to the great English diarist, Samuel Pepys. Although best known for his diary with its record of London life in the 1660s, Pepys was in fact a naval administrator at the Admiralty, and some of his letters to naval figures of the day are on display at the restaurant.
In the flagstoned basement bar you can buy pub food and snacks. Upstairs, the restaurant and the attractive beamed bar adjoining it have excellent views of the Thames through huge picture windows. The restaurant is interestingly decorated with clusters of fine oil paintings of maritime scenes and a balcony over the river.
