Motion

Motion is a conveniently placed bar, suited to younger weekend drinkers and after work gatherings. Set in the unusual Hungerford House, the small ground floor gives way to a labyrinthine basement area, where most of the...

Princess of Wales

Don't go looking for anything original here (after all, this is a street with two Starbucks on it) as this is an unspectacular Nicholson's pub. The main bar always feels on the small side, whether that's due to the giant screen...

Theodore Bullfrog

During the after-office rush for drink, this place can resemble a bright barn that exists solely to serve alcohol. It attracts droves of thirsty accountants and such who guzzle bottled beer and bark into mobile phones before...

Gordon's Wine Bar

Not a pub, we know, but a wine bar with more charm and atmosphere than many of London's boozers (particularly those nearby); Gordon's is one of the most idiosyncratic drinking holes in town, its darkened alcoves a world away...

Tattersall Castle

Resplendent in its new livery, the ex-paddle steamer, the Tattersall Castle is a fitting tourist attraction for the area, located in an ideal spot almost opposite the London Eye and County Hall and close to Westminster. The...

Ha! Ha! Bar & Canteen

What could've been an interesting multilevelled space underneath Charing Cross station has been sadly rendered like a claustrophobic All Bar One, which just gets worse the busier it becomes. Despite this, it's as popular as...

Player's Bar & Restaurant

Bit hit and miss this one and previous reviews have ranged from the very good to the very ordinary - we're still undecided ourselves so would welcome other feedback before we go back and review again.

Nell Gwynne Tavern

On the face of things it's Ye Olde Worlde Pubbe, but, the Nell Gwynne is not as touristy as its location and cosy size would make you think. Sure, it's dimly lit and makes the most of its historical associations, but it still...

Coal Hole

Probably the most famous pub in the area, the Coal Hole is pretty much unchanged over the years, although it has had its ups and downs. Built in a corner of the Savoy Hotel complex, the pub has a medieval (circa 1904) style...

Retro Bar

With a preponderance of standy-uppy stripped pine bars and corporate pseudo olde-worlde places nearby, Retro Bar stands out by being just a little bit different. Tucked down a little alleyway, it's certainly more Camden than...

Boadicea

As a drinker favoured by those who favour booze before using public transport, the Boadicea serves a purpose. It's a small, sweaty place that offers London Pride amid the usual fray of lager and alcopops. The jukebox provides...

If you go to Charing Cross mainline station you're spoilt for choice these days with not one but two pubs. We say 'spoilt', but we're lying. Obviously, being honest, concourse pubs are never destinations to seek out. The one...

Sherlock Holmes

You have to be a bit of Sherlock Holmes to find this pub, as Baker Street is a good Hansom Cab's ride away from Northumberland Avenue. Nevertheless, the pub has plunged wholeheartedly into its chosen theme to please pub-going...

Lemon Tree

This one got a refurb earlier in the year, and reports we've had aren't promising. Not one we go out of the way for, we'll have to try and get back and see what it's like now.

Old Shades

The Old Shades is in middle one of a trio of Whitehall pubs (practically in a row) but you'll find this one is a better bet than the other two - it actually shows a bit of character. With leather bench seating, leaded windows...

Silver Cross

A refurbishment of this Whitehall pub in 2008 seems to have changed very little in terms of atmosphere, decor or clientele. Step through the doors and you'll find this is a large scale chain pub that battles it out with the...

Lord Moon of the Mall

The usual Wetherspoon recipe - refit a large commercial property (in this case a bank), serve up cheap beer and food and watch them flock in. Commercially this place must be a success: getting through the local civil servants...

Savoy Tup

Lurking just off the Strand and just out of sight of most tourists is the Savoy Tup. It's typical of the Massive chain, with a few decent beers on the hand pumps, a modest wine list and the usual range of spirits. But if you're...

Riverfront Bar & Kitchen

The BFI, formerly the National Film Theatre, is a long established part of the Southbank's cultural milieu, but until recently its bar was lacking any creative touch. A refit has made for a more clearly defined space, splitting...

Hops!

The overuse of exclamation marks is a common failing in modern English usage and there should be no exceptions when it comes to naming a bar. Unwarranted over-enthusiasm aside, this is an odd little place tucked in between the...
