Brewmaster

Usually overcrowded, the ground floor bar in this pub is rarely worth the effort in our opinion, unless you like sharp elbows or are looking for a fight. But the first floor room is a welcome and surprising exception and worth...

The Captain's Cabin

Tucked away down a side street around the back of Piccadilly Circus, we can't say this pub's got a lot going for it beyond its relative obscurity. Drinkable beer combined with its isolated location means it's worth hunting down...

Henry's

While the emphasis here is mostly on cocktails, you can still get a pint in here, if of a limited selection. The ambiance, decor and music make this the sort of place to chill out or have those few drinks before getting to the...

Porcupine

The main function of the Porcupine seems to be a default destination for those who aren't sure where to go in the West End. So be prepared to mix with tourists drinking half a lager and weekenders using the pub as a pre-club...

The Two Chairmen (ex-Nancy's, ex-Schrodingers)

After a few more name and identity changes, this old pub is finally back to its original (1683, apparently) name. Nothing to do with corporate board members, the name refers to the guys who used to carry somewhat richer people...

Angel & Crown

This pub is quiet enough, considering its location. It does get busy later in the evening, but not bad early on. They do food in the bar and in the first floor restaurant which can also be hired as a function room. The beer is...

Ku Bar (ex-Polar Bear)

Billing itself as "London's Finest Gay Bar", it's got a lot to live up to, but whatever, it does it with a bit of panache (as we would expect, of course). The clientele are predominantly gay, so unless you're happy...

The White Swan

It looks OK from the outside, a traditional pub (the Swan we seem to recall) that's been fitted out with stuff from the Irish theme pub parts bin. If you stay in there for more than a few minutes you'll realise just how fake it...

Bonapartes

If you go to Charing Cross mainline station you're spoilt for choice these days with not one but two pubs. We say 'spoilt', but we're lying. Obviously, being honest, concourse pubs are never destinations to seek out. The one...

Walkers of Whitehall

Walkers is a hidden away place a stones throw from Trafalgar Square which, overshadowed by the tourist-attracting Sliver Cross just in front, predominantly attracts the afterwork crowd. There's also more space than you'd give...

Boadicea

As a drinker favoured by those who favour booze before using public transport, the Boadicea serves a purpose. It's a small, sweaty place that offers London Pride amid the usual fray of lager and alcopops. The jukebox provides...

Slug and Lettuce (ex-Crooked Surgeon)

Not a lot to report since it was consume- sucked into- taken over by the Slug and Lettuce chain. It's passable, we suppose and as most of the clientele tend to be transients going from one place to another, it's probably not...

Lemon Tree

This one got a refurb earlier in the year, and reports we've had aren't promising. Not one we go out of the way for, we'll have to try and get back and see what it's like now.

Sherlock Holmes

You have to be a bit of Sherlock Holmes to find this pub, as Baker Street is a good Hansom Cab's ride away from Northumberland Avenue. Nevertheless, the pub has plunged wholeheartedly into its chosen theme to please pub-going...

Waxy's Little Sister

Much smaller version of Waxy O'Connors - hence the name. Less theme park and more of a pub than its big sister, it still can get pretty crowded. Decent Guinness, but that's about it.

The Montagu Pyke

The Montague Pyke is once again a Wetherspoon pub, having once been the other kind of Wetherspoon - a Lloyd's No. 1 bar.

Waxy O'Connors

More theme park than pub, this cavernous, never-ending pub is truly enormous. Multi-storied and multi-roomed with two entrances, if you plan to meet someone here, you'll need GPS co-ordinates, or at least a compass. A...
