Always a good sign when pubs allow dogs. We came here for drinks and dinner several times while we stayed at a nearby hotel. The service was always quick and the food was good - we had pies and bangers and mash during our trip....More

I had the pleasure of having lunch here with some colleagues from HM Treasury. Despite being a stone's throw from the tourist hordes in St. James's Park and on Horse Guards Road, it's a relatively quiet place though well-populated at lunch. Lovely, dark-paneled interior. Excellent...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
