Soho is a bit of a wasteland for decent pubs. This is a nice bolthole. Friendly staff and good atmosphere make it a great meeting up spot. Although small it always offers a good range of well kept beers. Basic washrooms with no soap.

We booked a meal for 2 people for 12 noon on a Saturday, arrived about 10 minutes early and were told "the waitress isn't here yet and probably won't be here in time for your booking as she is always late"!! We had a drink in the bar which was very traditional and very busy but nice. The waitress turned... More

Have been to this pub several times when I was in Soho, but did not notice they had had a surprisingly quiet and decent restaurant space upstairs, that I dined with my mates this time. A conspicuous contrast with the very busy and bustling air in the pub downstairs. Fish and chips were quite nice, very meaty and not expensive... More

Another pub ticked off from my Camra book of heritage interiors. Very busy but eventually got a seat. Several . American tourists eating . Ale not bad, although I'm not a great fan of Fullers London Pride. Lovely atmospheric tiled interior with decorative etched mirrors. Service was with a smile. Small drinking area outside. Upstairs dining room looked nice. A... More

I used to pop into the dog and duck regularlybut don't get there as often as I would like now that I have changed jobs. Luckily I was able to pop in with a friend and enjoy the best atmosphere, decor and food that is on offer. The landlady Natalie is always warm and welcoming as are all the staff.... More

The Dog & Duck is a cozy pub with no surprises - nor bad or pleasant: The food is fine and classic British. The waiter seemed a bit tired...

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.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
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.
