THE STORY OF The Volunteer

Dating back to the 1800s, The Volunteer is steeped in history and acted as a recruitment station during the war, representations of which can be seen on the pub’s walls today. Rumoured to be haunted, there have been tales of flickering lights and eerie sightings of a well-dressed man in breeches and surcoat, thought to be the ghost of a wealthy Londoner whose grand house stood on the site in the 17th century.

One of the most established watering holes in the Baker Street area, The Volunteer remains enduringly popular with local residents and workers alike, as well as visitors to the capital – close to multiple transport links, it’s the ideal place to kick back and unwind after a hard day’s work, a visit to nearby Regent’s Park or a sightseeing trip around the capital.
