Newman Arms, Fitzrovia
1. Its a decent pub; the pies are fine though not "out of this world". The location gives you a sense of a backstreet pub though you're hardly more than a stone's throw from Oxford Street/Wigmore Street ie the heart of the West End.
2. A chance to take a stroll down Newmans Passage, next door...one of London's most evocative little alleyways, as featured, virtually unchanged, in Michael powell's "Peeping Tom" in 1960.
Combine the two for a taste of the London tourists dream about, but rarely experience...
23 Rathbone Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1NQ
