The Oliver Conquest

Small pub with over 200 varieties of gin behind the bar and regular live music

This small Leman Street pub keeps adding to its gin selection - this time last year they had more than 200 varieties behind the bar. Now? More than 300. That should keep even the most hardened gin fan busy. 

They go toward making a range of gin and tonics (made with more types of tonic than your average bar - seven, to be exact), as well as a fair number of cocktails, including negronis, brambles and martinis. Keep an eye out for gin flights and tastings, too.

Regular live music also features, with acoustic sets from emerging talent drawing crowds.

If you're a gin lover, this place is your heaven. Honestly, I couldn't even count the types of gin they have here (not because I can't count past 200, but I wouldn't want to even hazard a guess) but from the ones my friends and I tried, each and every one of them was delicious. If you don't know which drink to choose, ask the very friendly people behind the bar and they'll talk you through some options. The place isn't huge, so getting there before peak after-work-drinks period is important if you want a seat. It's important to note that if you don't like gin, you're definitely not going to be running low on options; they do offer a good selection of other alcoholic beverages for you to enjoy!


Because it's unique atmosphere is welcoming due to its staff and vast array of different gins to tempt your palette.


Love this cosy little place - great winter venue when you're need in need of a glass of red or two!


I love this venue as the Landlady Sara Jane adores gin and her passion shows - she now stocks over 300 so this is the place to go to try new ones!


Just a fabulous place! Lovely Gin Gin Gin! All the guys behind the bar are so friendly and know so much about my favourite tipple! Still working my way through the list and it just keeps getting more added! Comfortable like a favourite jumper too!


Celebrating five years this year. As regulars it's fantastic to have a pub on our doorstep with friendly (and knowledgeable) bar staff who know you. A real treat in London. Sara's also managed to create something modern and unique without losing the essence of an old fashioned boozer. Locals are very protective of the OC!
