The Doggett’s Coat and Badge

1 Blackfriars Bridge,




The Doggett’s Coat and Badge:

For almost 300 years, there has been an amateur rowing race on the Thames, from London Bridge to Chelsea. Originally organised by Thomas Doggett, the winner was awarded a coat and badge, hence the historic origin of the name. The Doggett’s Coat and Badge is a traditional pub full of character, with an eclectic range of real ales and quality pub food. Thomas Doggett was an actor who became manager at the Drury Lane Theatre, then the Haymarket Theatre before becoming a politician of renowned wit.


We would be delighted if you could join us for this event.
