The pub previously on this site was called the Crown and Sugar Loaf, but was renamed as the Punch Tavern in the 1840s, as Punch magazine had its office nearby at that end of Fleet Street. It was rebuilt by the architects Saville and Martin in two phases, first the main part area of the pub and its Fleet Street frontage in 1894–95, and then its Bride Lane frontage with a "Luncheon Bar" behind in 1896–97.

We were looking for somewhere to watch the football while visiting London. The manager was happy to put it on for us. We had lunch while watching the match, the fish and chips and steak and ale pie were excellent. I was looking for a gin to have and was recommended the Chase pink grapefruit which was lovely.
