Unfortunately always full of people, anytime we walked around. Last time we went around we bought 2 beers for standing, but we didn't enjoy it...There´s even not a place for people to stand in front of the bar so you have to stand out on the sidewalk with many other people.

We dined in a small room upstairs with four other tables. When we came there the pop music was absolutely blaring, with the other guests struggling to talk over the noise. It struck me as strange choice for the milieu. To turn down the music the waitress had to make a gentleman at a neighboring table stand up so that... More

Friendly staff, lovely craft lager (blue moon with some orange in it!!), cosy seats at the back of the pub or near the bar. There was a restaurant upstairs which looked busy but we didn't go.

Love this pub, always busy and bustling, with friendly service, and a good array of drinks. Ive not managed to get a seat very often but its never stopped us from popping in whenever were in Soho.

Came here 2 days ago and instantly fell in love with everything. Its so rare to find something so preserved in a vast expanding London. The cask master (think his name was James) showed me and told me what ales he reccomended, and even let me have a cheeky littile taster of a couple. And his smile is what you... More

We visited this place a few weeks ago while touring the city - the place is super busy and there's loads of good drinks to bed had. I recommend going on a Friday night out in Soho

Its hard to conceive that this area was once the preserve of royal hunting grounds, and we felt proud to be patrons just like Mozart, Constable and Rossetti, let alone, Orwell, did way back when. The present pub dates back from 1897 and contains a large quantity of the highly glazed tiles that were popular in their day. I can... More

Chef should be ashamed, microwaved crap dishes, never again, weather spoons would be better. Ok for a pint but certainly not for food.

After ordering 2 drinks and asking to pay separately the bar lady was very rude and said next time we have to order separately. When we said there wouldn't be a next time she said 'good'. She got the order of 4 wrong and this was because she was chatting to other staff while taking our order. We felt very... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
