The Dispensary is independently owned, stylish dining pub, renowned for its country house in the city feel.
We have established ourselves as a local favourite, providing a unique space in which to enjoy food and drink of the highest quality, served in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
Owner Chef, David Cambridge, has created a menu to suit all tastes, with the emphasis on fresh produce. Everything we source is as local and independent as possible. David attends Smithfield Market to source high quality, great tasting fresh meat and does his own butchery. Our fish is fresh off the day boat and our fruit and vegetables are handpicked each morning, from New Covent Garden.
The standard of our food is matched by the quality of our hand-picked Beers and carefully selected wine and spirits.
When you eat at The Dispensary, you know you are eating food cooked by a top class chef with impeccable credentials.
David trained (as a chef) with Rothschild NMR, cooking first in their directors’ city dining room and later at private events and parties in the Rothschild family’s country houses and international estates. The classic French style continues to influence his cooking and/while he adds his own trademark flair to these dishes.
Nice things people say about us
"Good venue for a large group. Great staff! Great night, really flexible and friendly. The food was exceptional, as was the wine."
"Thank you so much for the wonderful dining experience earlier this week - the food and wine was just amazing and the service was out of this world.Certainly one of the best dining experiences I've had and you beat most of the Michelin starred restaurants hands down.
Hope to see you again soon."
"Our large group from the BHBIA came here for drinks after a challenging competition day event - we wanted to give the entrants a chance to wind down and socialise. It was a great venue for this. Vibrant atmosphere but still quiet enough for people to talk to each other. Great service from Annie and the team - our pre-ordered drinks were ready for us and ongoing service was great. Also very good value for Central London. Thank you!"
"Excellent dinner, lovely atmosphere, delicious food! Annie was very helpful and amazing. I strongly recommend The Dispensary!!!"
"The Dispensary always serves a fabulous meal with great service. They remember me year to year which makes visiting extra special."
"Dear Annie, David, Phillip and all of the staff, Thank you so much for making my 50th birthday celebration so special. Afternoon tea in a wonderful private room upstairs for 26, second to none, professional butler, friendly and attentive staff, we felt thoroughly looked after and will come back at the earliest possibility. You are a rare independent gem in the city. Thank you so much."
"Great pub/dining room - we always feel at home there. If you haven’t been there yet, give it a go!"
