The Goat story...

A famous former Public House, The Goat, became the haunt of Admiralty staff in the Great War. As liquor flowed within the pub, tongues loosened and important military secrets were said to have become hot topics of discussion. A separate room, named the Goat Bar, was therefore established for the Admirals to drink and talk in more secluded freedom. The Naval & Military Club recreated the Goat Bar within its own walls at the end of the war.

Hours of Operation:

  • Monday to Friday: 09.00 - 2130
  • Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holidays: 1100 - 1900

Outside these hours, The Goat is always open (without refreshment service) as the Club's television room
