Food was great. We ordered rigatoni pasta and fish and chips, and some flight beers. I gave an average rating because as usual, staff was not friendly. Doesn’t anyone that works as wait staff in London ever smile?? So odd.

Good afternoon, Sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. We do receive daily fish deliveries, so it really can't be much fresher. As this is a British staple, we do review this recipe, and we do believe it to be a great dish. It even has...More

A traditional pub with a story to tell, The Admiralty is a step back in time to the decks of HMS Victory and the Battle of Trafalgar. Looking out to Nelson’s Column, it’s officially London’s most central pub, where the best of British pub food awaits alongside Fuller’s cask ales.
