Offers a great wine menu and quality beers. It's situated in the middle of a square which makes it a little intrusive but the surroundings are pleasant.

This lovely cosmopolitan bar is tucked away in a little yard behind the Scottish shop. Their Gordal Olives and smoked almonds are amazing for a little snack. I'm surprised this pub is only open Monday -Friday. I would recommend a visit here.

This is a nice bar set in a Courtyard behind Bloomsbury square. Very nice to sit outside on a sunny evening. Prices are to be expected, not many beers on offer, but it's more of a wine bar anyway. The food is good, but probably...More

Met friends for drinks here pre dinner on a Friday evening. Not packed out but comfortably buzzing and a great atmosphere. Wine good and reasonably priced and they serve the most divine olives!!

Pied Bull Yard is a small haven in Bloomsbury with a few retail outlets. This is a cosy pub/wine bar suitable for largish groups of people to stop for a drink. It would all have been fine except my rosé spritzer was made with tonic...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance

It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated

Situated in a pretty courtyard moments from Holborn and The British Museum, Truckles is an oasis of calm. The menu features classic British fayre, using carefully sourced seasonal produce with light bites and more substantial main dishes. Needless to say, wine lovers are well looked after with a carefully selected list from Davy's Wine Merchants' renowned cellar. Truckles is well-placed to cater for private events in its atmospheric cellars.
