Second time at this pub but years apart and seems to have dropped their standards. You have to order downstairs and quieter eating upstairs. It was fairly busy but a wait of 45 mins for standard pie and chips and ham eggs and chips was...More

Love this place! Especially at winter. So many fantastic lights and decorations for the holidays. A good selection of shops And cafes around too. Lanes are fairly narrow so can be quite crowded during evenings.

Nice street with a lot of vintage shops, restaurants and pubs. A good escape from the very busy and more mainstream Oxford Street and Regent Street.

The lights were amazing and the Queen Pop Up shop was cool, but, without those, it's really just another shopping strip, like so many other shopping strips before it!! We went there, took the touristy pictures and enjoyed the sights, and can tick it off...More

We wandered down at 6PM a few days after XMAS to see the lights and although quite nice,,,one could barely move due to the crowds....I am certain that had we gone at a non peak time it would have been more pleasant....

Carnaby Street has always been a Mecca of mine since the 70’s. Love the place and the atmosphere. But, this year, was a special with the lights at Christmas and the lyrics of Queens Bohemian Rhapsody.

Old wine in new bags. Revamped and Freddy Mercury is all over the place. The street and the pop up store is a must for fans of Queen.

I would assume not, but previous advice is your best option. Cafes and restaurants should have posted hours. Beautiful time yo be there.
