Glassblower is a nice place in London to have a good food and good beer. My wife and I loved this pub.

Drinks were fine here, as a stopover - but it was certainly busy and cramped we choose not to eat here for this reason, so I have scored this as average.

After passing by this pub dozens of time when in the Picadilly Circus area, we decided to pop in for a cider. It was quite busy upon our arrival, but we managed to get a table as someone else was leaving. We ordered some chips to go along with our cider and they arrived fast and hot. They have a... More

The toilets stink! Such a let down when the basic facilities are disgusting. It's the sort of place you walk into and know you are in a toilet.

Popped in here for some drinks and also had one of their Steak and Ale pies. Very nice overall and would definitely visit again. Decent prices and a good amount of tables, so there always seemed to be somewhere to sit.

My partner and I have dined at this pub on our last three visits to London. The dining room upstairs is small but we always manage to get a table. Food has always been good and staff pleasant. Will definitely return again in the future.

I understand there are literally thousands of pubs, and I am not an expert in the area of pub food. But, we came across the Glassblower after wandering around Picadilly Circus and were very happy with our meal. The restaurant upstairs was very charming and had great food. The rib eye steak, the venison pie, and the paella were excellent.... More

Nice atmosphere, good food and drinks. We had a family dinner in the upstairs dining room. The fish and chips was really tasty and so was the hamburger.

They never meet your heroes or go back to special places after a long time, because it will never be what you expect or remember. Back in the UK, visiting old haunts, The Glassblowers, seems to be confused about what it is....Pub or Restaurant. The beer was great, very busy at lunch but still good service but food seemed over... 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.
