Description: A member of the iconic fleet dating back to 1873, Nicholson's offers timeless British pub hospitality. A fine stock of smooth and silky cask ales are pulled at the bar, while homely British classics are served in the dining room. The carefully chosen wine list brings together some great international bottles, while a Cask Ale Club is offered for any true beer aficionados.

We ate here with old friends who were in town for one night. We deliberated over all the choice in the area and settled for pub grub. This place is a classic with tiled interior, good selection of real ale and the speciality fo the house are the excellent pies.We drank Cottleigh Barn Owl from Somerset on draught; a classic old school bitter with good malty body and plenty of hops in the length. The pies all pleased - cottage, beef rib and ale, chicken and mushroom and a quiche all disappeared quickly. No cheese board sadly for the taste buds but just as well concerning the waistline. George Orwell drank here and the place must have been an influence on his essay on the perfect pub - The Moon Under Water. A very fine example of a sadly disappearing part of British heritage.

Ordered two glasses of white wine. They didn't have it in the fridge behind the bar so barmaid went into the cellar. Knowing how these things can go I said make sure it is cold. She reappeared and poured the wine - it was room temperature (in this warm weather!). I said that is no good and tasted it to make the point - just unacceptable so I asked for another wine off their menu. She said they didn't have it (without looking). i returned to our table to look at the wine menu. When I got back to the bar she was pouring the wine we had rejected back into the bottle - included that which I had already tasted!!! Unbelievable!!

So if attitude and poor hygiene is what you are looking for I can recommend the Dog and Duck!!

We were in this cosy lovely restaurants for a dinner with friends. I order some incredible goat pie with hot vegetables and smashed potatoes and all was great, smooth and I felt like home. I really recommend to visit this restaurant with nice pictures inside and homely atmosphere and delicious food. Thank you.

There’re so many Pubs in SoHo and they all claim to serve good fish & chips etc.
This place serves one of the best fish & chips you can get. Complimented with good beer.
Their pies are not to be missed either. Don’t come here if you’re on a diet
If you want good food... don’t go anywhere else.
