The Horse & Groom is an oft overlooked but beautiful Victorian pub a few minutes from Oxford Street. Along with plenty of original tiling and woodwork, the pub has four distinct sections: the front is predominantly standing room, the middle area has a rare-to-see dartboard and the back room is the most cosy, with bench seating and a fireplace. There's also a very civilised upstairs bar. Our numerous visits have given the impression that, although busy, its probably the only pub in Fitzrovia which doesn't become packed like a rush hour tube train - its usually possible to get a seat, even on a Friday night. Definitely an advantage for after work drinks, it points to possibly being frighteningly quiet at other times. Its possible the pub's position - most other nearby pubs in occupy imposing corner plots - means it somewhat blends in with the anonymous shops on Great Portland Street. Still, if it means we can have a seat with our pint, we're not going to complain too much.

Where survival is concerned the most important thing is to make the most of your surroundings. For me the cheap drinks and available seats far outweighed the the "dark and gloomy" atmosphere. If you can't enjoy a nice drink and a good sit down in the dark there is something wrong with you.

This pub is quite possibly the worst pub I have ever visited in London. The place was very dark and gloomy and had little to no character in my opinion. Also I found it to be quite dirty as well.
