A great place to visit if you want a pint in a good location. Good beer, good food and not a candle in sight.

Popped in for a few pints of guiness last night for the first time in years. Great atmosphere and music. Got served surprisingly quickly given how busy it was. Staff friendly and efficient which is the most important thing in any pub. Keep this up and I will return. Even the security guys were friendly which was rarely the case... More

On issues but also nothing to stand out. Big open and loud it's what you would expect for the location

Went waxy's for a drink before going on elsewhere and what a pleasure it was. Entering the bar, it just looks like any other pub. However venture further it and all that changes. It becomes like a rabbit warren or tree, branching off into different areas for people to sit and chat. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, some pubs you go in,... More

Visited the big smoke London no trip is without a visit to WOC. The pub is amazing and still the same as it should be apart from the warm welcome. 😟. When brig charge £11.20 for two drinks just be nice. It's not hard at 1300 in the afternoon when it's empty.

There's a deal of theatre about this pub, a maze of a place which seems to have been made from recycled bits and pieces from Gothic churches. Makes for quite an atmosphere. A top venue for a meet up to start your West End adventure or simply a destination in its own right as the booze and grub is pretty... More

Went for a few times with friends for some drinks. The pub is always busy but somehow we always manage to get a table. The atmosphere is great, music nice, variety of beers and what not. Tried their food more than once, was not disappointed. It is a very good pub for catching up with friends and just hung out.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
