Three Crowns

This cosy, back-street boozer cleverly pulls off the trick of acting like it's in a quiet part of town, while the reality is you can almost hear the buzz of Piccadilly Circus traffic from the bar. On our visit, we were...

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...

The George

We weren't entirely sure what was going to happen to this one. But after the traditional-style pub that was here closed a while back it's reopened as a hip and trendy style bar. This may have been the best thing for it, as it...

Old Shades

The Old Shades is in middle one of a trio of Whitehall pubs (practically in a row) but you'll find this one is a better bet than the other two - it actually shows a bit of character. With leather bench seating, leaded windows...

Silver Cross

A refurbishment of this Whitehall pub in 2008 seems to have changed very little in terms of atmosphere, decor or clientele. Step through the doors and you'll find this is a large scale chain pub that battles it out with the...

The Tottenham

We've heard a rumour this Nicholson's pub - the only remaining pub on Oxford Street - has been Grade II listed, in an effort to keep it a pub. It's doing its best to stand out from the general madness of this part of town, but...

Anyone familiar with the Belgo concept will find few surprises here. As with the other bars in the chain, a vast array of beers can be found: white beers, dark beers, Trappist ales and the fashionable fruit beers are all in...

The Toucan Bar

The Toucan is a tiny, tiny Irish pub, with quite a jolly, vibrant atmosphere (which is kind of ironic, given how dark the place is). There's a good pint of Guinness, naturally, and good service (when you can get to the bar),...

Glasshouse Stores

A quirky Sam Smith's pub in the heart of the touristy bit of Soho. Some nice old features remain and give the pub an olde worlde atmosphere. It's larger than it looks from the outside, with a basement bar and space out the back...

A lively pub at the top end of Berwick Street Market. The surrounding area with the market and shops is still a bit of old London (although changing fast) and this pub is just what most pubs in the area used to be like. There...

Courtesy of @Blogandduck: Speakeasy's and Soho go together like ale and pork scratchings. For a warren of entertainment, vice and danger (like the one sandwiched between Oxford Street and Shaftesbury Avenue), the drinking dens...

Hercules Pillars

Rather larger than it looks from the outside, this one's had a bit of a makeover and gone upmarket. It doesn't have quite the range of drink it used to have - John Smith's or Guinness for the beer drinkers - and the menu's gone...

The Crown

A decent enough pub and not as crowded as many others in the area. Whilst it's not going set pub fans' pulses racing, it's a handy refreshment stop. Drink is pretty average and the service is OK.

All Bar One (Holborn)

This branch of All Bar one is much like every single other All Bar One you can think of in London. As usual, its a magnet for the local office (and in this case legal) workers, who fill out the room until the noise levels...

Let's face it, you don't go to Wetherspoon pubs for the atmosphere. You might be drawn by the lack of music, the high chance of getting a seat or most importantly the cheap food and booze. And if you're after any of these,...

The Sun & Thirteen Cantons

The Sun & Thirteen Cantons is a Fuller's pub that has described itself as a 'brasserie' in the past, but that's pushing things a bit - the food's mostly Thai and it looks every bit like a pub - although it is one of their...
