This beautiful old pub sits right in the middle of the theater district. This makes it perfect for lunch before a matinee. The service is friendly. The manager always remembers me even though I'm in there only perhaps once a month. It has a good...More

Just popped in to one of our favourite pubs when in London. Didn't want a meal but more than a packet of crisps. Katheryn recommend the piglets in blankets. They were the perfect solution and incredibly tasty, much better than a packet of crisps!Well done...More
