Was with a Stag group and this was on our itinerary - posh word for pub crawl! Obviously the "toucan" is the old Guinness icon, so you expect Guinness, but there wasn't much else that I could face. Very crowded - event he outside space...More

Came in for a quick half pint of Guiness after seeing it branded as an Irish Bar. There was nothing Irish about it other than a tiny bit of decor. The vibe in the place was awful, absolutely no atmosphere, which is not what you...More

I worked in bars for years and sacked plenty of waiters and barstaff - if I worked here I'd sack the lot. Rude, discourteous, meanspirited and downright up yourself doesn't do it for me. Won't drink here again.

Pricks. I guess I was putting the waiters out for coming in and asking for a pint. Don’t bother with this place. Plenty of better places to visit.

Great place to have a Guinness on a rainy London afternoon. We enjoyed a nice few hours in the basement of this pub, just drinking and enjoying. The atmosphere is cool and the pints are not very expensive.

I made an effort to visit the pub after deciding I'd like a Guinness. As many will know, it can taste so different from place to place, due to usage, how often the lines are cleaned etc. Thankfully a place that is known for selling...More

As a Londoner I've been to this pub many times throughout the years but only just thought of reviewing it. This really is a gem in central London. It has a great atmosphere, great bar staff and great Guinness. It can get busy and full...More

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
