Although the term 'Pub & Dining Room' has recently been commandeered by reworked gastropubs, the time-honoured connotations of the term are fully evoked by the Guinea. Located just off Berkeley Square on Bruton Place - on a site where a pub has stood since the fifteenth century - you'll find the Guinea Grill serving up award winning pies - the steak and kidney was particularly spectacular, if a bit on the posh side, on our last visit and other traditional fare and the separate Guinea Bar playing host to the local office staff (which will also serve you steak and kidney pie, should you so desire). And it's good to see that Wells and Young's haven't decided to change a thing about this slice of pub history - after all, if it ain't broke don't fix it, and this definitely isn't broken. Due to the titchy size of the bar this one can get tremendously busy during the week. However, on Saturday nights the bar is often deserted, so if you're after a quiet night out in secluded surroundings, this could be the one for you.

A great Pub!

Me and my aquiantences have visited on numerous occasions, and have never been disappointed. The quality of the pies is such that you can understand that they have won National Pie Championships in recent years. Quite an expensive wine list, but decent fayre, and you regular Ales/Lagers on tap, as well as Magners.

We had the pleasure of meeting Josie D'Darby the last time we were there, and a few other well-known faces have dined there over the years.

One slight quibble; the viscosity of the condiments was a little sub standard and inconsistent.
