Reviving the oldest
pub in Mayfair
Established in 1738, The Running Horse is the oldest public house & kitchen in Mayfair. A collaboration between James Chase, of the award-winning Chase Distillery, and Dominic Jacobs, former bar director at Sketch, the pub was relaunched in the Autumn of 2013.
The challenge was to give the pub a contemporary British feel, whilst retaining the wonderful heritage of the property. The identity was inspired by the work of Edward Muybridge, an English photographer famous for his pioneering photographic studies, notably the ‘Horse in Motion’ in the 1700s. Now in its third year of business the pub has been a huge success and was recently voted 3rd best pub in London by Shortlist magazine.
