Coal Hole
  91 The Strand
United Kingdom
Tel. 020 7379 9883

  The Coal Hole occupies a corner of the Savoy Building, designed by Thomas Collcutt. The theme of stone, dark wood and leaded light windows , carries on into the street level bar. The ceiling is very high with heavy black beams. Hanging banners suggest something medieval,but no, it was decorated in 1904. Under the mock beams is a beautiful marble frieze of wistful maidens picking vines. Beside the bar, in a corner, is a magnificent fireplace, heavily decorated with reliefs of vines. Weird, eclectic, medieval, gothic, tudor and classical. Old prints on the wall. Old tiled floor.
