First up, an admission: you can't get a pint here. No Adnam's, no Young's, no Pride - not even a Guinness. Not a pub then, but a wine bar. But what a bar. This place has been setting the standards for wine bars since the early 1970s and the onus of the place is still on quality wines, lovely food and an agreeable atmosphere to enjoy them in. Even more remarkable is that this haven is located so close to the tacky horrors of Leicester Square. And whilst this place isn't a pub it shares the qualities of all good pubs: first rate food and drink, staff that actually care about their customers (whether they be regulars or first-timers) and an overall atmosphere of cheery drink taking. The only downside being that as the place has been so good for so long, the secrets out so turning up early (or phoning ahead) is sometimes necessary to guarantee a space. Otherwise though, this one shares qualities with some of the wines behind the bar, being subtle, charming and damn near perfect.
