Mulberry Bush

A reasonable pub for a pint if you're passing, but not one worth a detour. It has the decent beer, wine and food typical of Young's pubs, but doesn't quite gel. Given its proximity to both the South Bank and particularly to the...

Studio 6

Located moments from ITV's London Television Centre is Studio 6, but rather than playing host to shows by Ant & Dec or Parky it is actually a bar and restaurant. Essentially a small, brightly painted two-roomed shack, it's...

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...

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...

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...

Lord Moon of the Mall

The usual Wetherspoon recipe - refit a large commercial property (in this case a bank), serve up cheap beer and food and watch them flock in. Commercially this place must be a success: getting through the local civil servants...

Speight's

Sadly, no longer ensconced in a portakabin on top of Temple Station - the management and beer have moved nearby to a pub called <a href="http://fancyapint.com/pubs/pub607.html">The Southerner</a>. You can...

Walkabout

Unfortunately, this fits the mould of all the others - huge, cavernous room with lots of sport on telly and lager, lager, lager for the Antipodean masses. When there's any volume of people in here, it's almost impossible to...

Harp

Any tourist who dares wander just off the main stomping ground of Trafalgar Square will be very lucky indeed to find themselves pondering the choice of beers tantalising them in this small, handsome boozer. The walls are...

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.

Lyceum Tavern

The Lyceum is a decent enough pub, especially given its touristy location, with the usual cheap-but-decent Sam Smith's drink selections on offer - so expect students from nearby King's College to feature amongst your fellow...

Hops!

The overuse of exclamation marks is a common failing in modern English usage and there should be no exceptions when it comes to naming a bar. Unwarranted over-enthusiasm aside, this is an odd little place tucked in between the...

Walrus Social

The Walrus Social is an old Lower Marsh boozer (once the Red Lion) that's been adapted for a bar clientele. There's still the air of a pub to the place, although there are no real ales, there's a pretty standard range of beers...

Maple Leaf

This pub hasn't changed in years - it's obviously doing what it's supposed to. No prizes for guessing the theme of this pub - sacre bleu! c'est Canada! You don't have to drink Molson, watch the ice hockey or wear a plaid shirt,...

Clarence

The Clarence has always walked the line between 'cosy' and 'dingy', so when it became the latest pub to be refurbished by Geronimo Inns, we wondered how it would fare. A lot of the faux Victorian detailing has gone, to be...

Belushis

Belushis, for all its sins, often seems rather like a less trashy Walkabout. While that may not be high praise by any means, it is a perfectly acceptable destination in its own right. By virtue of its location, it aims squarely...

Nell of Old Drury

A cosy little pub, with decent beer, across the road from the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. This does affect the place, as you get theatre patrons (and musicians) in before the show and at the interval, so be prepared for sudden...

Punch & Judy

Waterloo Bar & Kitchen

A gastropub (actually more of a restaurant), for sure, but one that is straightforwardly classy, rather than pretentious. The Waterloo Bar and Kitchen is popular in the early evenings with those en route to the nearby Old Vic,...
