Welcoming oasis on the hottest day of the year so far. Friendly enough staff and a thirst quenching selection of cooling ales. Had planned to explore a few more of Soho's watering holes during the afternoon but the Dog and Duck did us nicely.

Lovely little pub in Soho. We arrived as a group, they found us seating and we had the fish and chips. Serves were large fish quite nice and the chips were large perhaps a bit flowery but plentiful. We had 2 different ales and both were quite nice if you like ale. Service was very good.

I came here while on a food tour of Soho with London Food Lovers tour co. and was told that this pub had the best fish in London. After trying it, it was hard to argue. The fish was fresh; the batter was light and nothing was at all greasy. As part of the tour, we tried some wonderful ales... More

A fine handsome pub with lovely decor. The George Orwell room is on the second floor. Check out the dog and duck on the top of the street wall.

A nice old pub serving a very good selection of real ale which we enjoyed but very expensive at nearly £5 per pint....saying that though all the pubs in this area are the same so maybe shouldn't knock them too much for that. The pub itself is small but quaint with plenty of what looked like old, if not original,... More

Went here yesterday for drinks with a friend. The place is well located, in the middle of Soho. It certainly looks the part - a quaint Victorian Pub on the street corner - what makes Pubs so uniquely British. However, inside it is just a bit too small, with hardly any room to stand by the bar. Fortunately we got... More

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

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.
