Excellent customer service terrible value for money. The barman saved the day but the food quality wasn't good.

The atmosphere of the bar is great and is a nice neighborhood pub. Upstairs the food is good, not great. My fish and chips were a bit soggy, but the cod was good

Visited this lovely old pub, to see the tiles, and found it very welcoming and interesting. There are tiles with the Dog and Duck on them, and the back tiles are very old, and Minton. Staff were very friendly, we were introduced to the manager outside, they made i memorable for us. Thanks

I had a fish & chips dinner with a beer. The upstairs dining room is cosy, beautiful, quiet. Service is great. Food was good. I will definitely come back here on a next visit to London. The downstairs bar was packed and noisy.

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

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.
