Good old London Boozer

Just popped in for a couple of drinks before eating out at a restaurant. Nice pub, good choice and pleasant staff. Pimms and Lemonade was perfect with all the trimmings. Quite expensive but it is central London.

of course, fish and chips is the one to order, but I went (unlike the rest of my party of 8) with their Taylor-Walker platter that included fish, mini burgers and ale&minced beef pie). The pies were OUTSTANDING. Order it, you will not be disappointed

A buzzing London pub with atmosphere spilling out into the streets. Pimms served to perfection! Quick and friendly service. Ooh and the dining room upstairs (had a quick peep) is beautiful :)

Conveniantly located in the centre of west end very near Piccadilly circus. It is an idyllic place to have few drinks and sample English food at its best. The place has a good reputation for good food, great value and a friendly atmosphere to match.

This is fairly central and a pleasant pub for a quick drink in a hot day, although is expensive at £5:70 for a pint of beer and the food looked expensive also (plenty of other places to eat). The bar staff were not locals and didn't know the beers, what they were or their strengths/origins etc which is the basic... More

Came here first in November 2014 and was so happy with the food and service that when I was in the area in July 2015 I came back unfortunately the staff couldn't give a crap my food order was wrong and it took 2 people to sort it out (1 of these just wasn't interested and rude) if I hadn't...

Didn't realize it before we went in, but a lot of these pubs fall under the same group (the name escapes me right now). The Rose and Crown near Hard Rock is one for example, where we ate the night before. They have the same menus. They all seem to be authentic pubs, so it's not like a "chain". The... More

I went in this pub in June after my shopping. I was tired and I wanted to drink a beer. I saw this seemingly nice pub. I come inside, the man, behind the bar, wasn't friendly and you can feel that they didn't wash the filter of the beer. I'm so sorry but for me is NO!

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.
