In the Soho region it is a typical pub serving extremely delicious beer. During rush hours it is packed with people but still you can find a place at the bar. It is a must go place.

Whilst other members of our party were shopping on Regents Street, we spotted this little pub down a little side street that I had visited in the early 80s. Situated on a fork in the road giving it it's triangular shaped bar area, this pub used to have sawdust covering the floor in the old days, not any more. Staff... More

We had a fantastic very filling meal and the service was very good. Was a bit surprised when there was only one toilet for male and female.

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.
