“A Great Pint Of Guiness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We went with friends may 6th, for a couple of drinks , prior to the Ritz, never normally liked Guiness, however, served at the right temperature, in a great atmosphere, it was outstanding.
The place is a little difficult to find, next to Chinatown, but what great decor.

Check it out , good fun and great staff, the food smells wonderful, will have to try it next time !!

“Great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Been to this pub a few times now and had a great night every time! Very unusual setting and wide variety of drinks. Eaten here a couple of times too and it has always been good quality and great value! Highly recommend!

“Great pub in the West End”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Stumbled upon this pub last week...it's a gem amidst all the club promoters of Piccadilly Circus. The interior is great, as is the atmosphere. Lots of seating and reasonably-priced drinks (typical of most West End pubs). I will definitely be returning soon!

“For the atmosphere and architecture alone, its a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Every time we have people visit us, we bring them to Waxy's. There is not other place that can really surprise visitors about what exists behind the doors of the London streets. The tree, the alcoves, the furniture, its lovely.

If you visit and want to speak with the people you come with, i would suggest coming in the early afternoon. Evening get quite busy, especially if they have a band on. It can get a little crazy and difficult to get through the crowds.

Ver nice place either way. Drinks prices are as you would expect for a central London bar.

“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Everyone should visit Waxy O'Connor's when visiting London. The outside doesn't do it justice but once your inside its amazing with hidden corners everywhere and even a huge carved tree that fills a large area towards the rear of the pub.Great atmosphere and good times. Thanks
