Hotel with a Pub?

I am traveling in May with my boyfriend. We would love to stay at a hotel in the $130-$200 a night price range that is as central as possible to most of the tourist destinations--that also happens to be attached to a cool, authentic pub! Not too much to ask??? Any suggestions? I just looked at the New Inn, but it is booked for our stay. We are currently booked at The Ridgemount. Any suggestions are appreciated. Many thanks!

The Harrison is an option.

[I also thought of The Orange and The Grazing Goat - but they are rather expensive.] http://www.cubitthouse.co.uk/

The Fox & Anchor suits but it may be out of your price range. Since London is up to its eyebrows in pubs, many of which satisfy the cool and authentic parameters, you won't have to look too far for a pint if you stay at the Ridgemount.

Check out the Cittie of York and Princess Louise in High Holborn; just behind Holborn station is the nifty little Ship Inn. That should do for a start.

Hi

You could try the other way round - a pub with rooms -

The Fuller's Brewery chain have a few in London

Prices should be around you range.

Why *must* you have a hotel with a pub attached - or vice versa. There are plenty of authentic pubs in London though I doubt if any of them would describe themselves as "cool".

Pubs in London are old, (for the most part anyway) and have usually always been pubs... hotels are seperate entities.

I kind of know where you're coming from as I've seen the joint hotel / bar setup stateside, and whereas our hotels do have a bar, they're as modern as the hotel and probably aren't what you're looking for. The most traditional pubs are standalone businesses, so don't look for the two together. Book a hotel, then ask here for pubs and we'll direct you to the nearest decent one, which is pretty certain to be within 5 minutes walk. Or have fun with the "Fancy a Pint" and "Beer In The Evening" websites.

Authentic pubs do not come attached to hotels.

Why not stay in a pub, like the Fox and Anchor?

Two Fullers Brewery pubs to look at are the Mad Hatter and also the Sanctuary which are both conveniently located for major sights:

The Fox & Anchor in Smithfield is more a hotel with a pub/restaurant attached, and often has deals at weekends that is in your pricerange. If you don't mind changing hotelsafter a couple of days, then it could be good - it's an interesting and historic part of town:

There are a pubs around Heathrow that have accommodation, but they are mainly for long-time builders working at Heathrow.

Out of genuine interest, can someone from the other side of the pond explain the meaning of "cool" in the context of English pubs ? I've seen it a couple of times recently. Over here we wouldn't use the word to describe a pub, maybe a chilled out bar. "Authentic" I get, but not "cool".

Just to understand, you understand...

"Cool" as in "wow, cool!" All purpose word, can refer to any age.

That castle is 1000 years old - "wow cool!"

That pub which opened yesterday has 20 different real ales - "wow cool!"

But we digress. The Harrison mentioned in post #1 would certainly fit the bill and the cooked breakfast will fill you up for the day, as long as you remember to order it the night before. "Cool". :-)
