Paviours Arms, Westminster
our final review
posted by jack on 9/4/2003
Proving that an old fashioned pub interior doesn't just mean oak panelled walls, here's a stylish art deco pub hidden away in the world of Whitehall. The interior is unlike any other pub we know of, which makes it even more of a sin that the place is due to be closed down at the start of May. It's pretty large as well, so handy if you're drinking in a big group. Given the area, it's hardly surprising that it's usually full of civil servants unwinding, but don't be put off - the bar staff are attentive, the Thai food does the job and the thirties interior is worth the trip alone. You've only got a few weeks left before another of London's irreplaceable pubs disappears - make sure you give it a look before it goes. (Closed at weekends).
Despite a popular and vigourous campaign, backed by MPs, the site was flattened to make way for a hideously banal development. Hardly what one might call progress.

Page St, Westminster, London, SW1P 4LR
Leave via Broadway exit and walk down the road past New Scotland Yard. Cross the main road and carry on straight down Strutton Ground. At the bottom of the Ground, carry straight on down Horseferry Road. Carry on for a couple of minutes, before taking a right down Marsham Street, then first left down Page St. The pub should be on your right.
