The Crutched Friars (cross-bearing brethren) was a Roman Catholic order which settled on this site in 1249. Named after the staff they carried, surmounted by a crucifix, the order was suppressed by Henry VIII during the dissolution of the monasteries (1536–41). Today, you can enjoy our large selection of cask ales in the historic building where the friars once lived.
The Crutched Friar is situated in The City of London, 2 minutes’ walk from Tower Hill tube.
We are passionate about great British food, our rich heritage of cask ales and newer craft beers, our extensive gin selection and our wine range.
From a quick lunch or snacks with a drink after work, to a sit down dinner or a corporate party with canapés and Prosecco – we can cater for you. Why not have a look at our menus.
Enjoy drinks al fresco in our courtyard or settle back and relax in our dining room and bar, whatever the weather.
A warm welcome awaits. See you soon.
