Possibly the shiniest jewel in Nicholsonâ€™s crown? Not that Iâ€™m suggesting that Nicholsonâ€™s are the king of pub-chains you realise, but itâ€™s true that this must be one of their most prized possessions. Tightly squeezed directly opposite the Argyll Street exit from Oxford Circus Tube Station, the Argyll Arms is a myriad of etched glass and carved wood screens, moulded ceilings and huge mirrors advertising beers and breweries of day gone by. The front of the pub is separated by a corridor of screens which leads to the dining area at the rear of the pub. Space can be at a premium (well what do you expect of a pub yards from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street) but there always seems to be enough bar staff on hand to ensure youâ€™re not waiting too long to order. Finding a space to drink your pint might be more of a challenge! Good range of cask ales (from Nicholsonâ€™s rotating range) and thereâ€™s also some â€śbetterâ€ť draught lagers like Pilsner Urquell if thatâ€™s your fancy. On my last visit managed a five minute chat with the jolly (and huge) Scottish landlord who seemed only too pleased to be able to take 5 from the stresses of running this place to pass the time of day with a customer â€“ not always what you get from West End pubs!

Very touristy and by definition unlikely to be a regular haunt for an office local, but it's interior is stunnning
