Would love to review what it was like inside but didn’t get past the rude, arrogant head door ‘manager’. Real attitude problem on this guy! Shame, because we heard good things about this place and really wanted to visit

A great place for a family to meet and have Sunday Lunch. Children and elderly could have a small plate or a large plate. The Roast Beef was succulent and all the vegetables and meals came out hot.

It's a gay bar with quite a mixed crowd and a very very relaxed friendly atmosphere. Don't go there with a serious head on, you'll totally miss the point. Quite a good section of drinks.

This is a pub in a very busy part of Southampton (Oxford Street) which has many good restaurants and bars, but the London Hotel is popular with a varied pub/british menu, friendly, with a great atmosphere. I would like to write a review for it, but it does not appear on TripAdvisor yet.
