Description: One of the reasons people visit London is for its fabulous pubs. The London Pub brings this important part of British culture to our liveliest hotel. Our selection of draft beers compares with some of the capital's finest establishments. But this being the Royal National, we decided to give our pub a modern twist. Our food is renowned. High-quality pub classics, such as hand-crafted burgers and our famous fish and chips, are also exceptionally good value. And the atmosphere, relaxed by day and buzzing by night, is precisely what us Brits look for from a pub. But step onto the terrace and you'll find original graffiti by legendary street-artist Copyright.

“Bland Atmosphere”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

The menu is limited and the food is bland and unappealing. The beer is cold but the selection is not extensive. There are better places to go within walking distance.

“Busy but not typical”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Very busy pub... appears to be part of a chain.. lots of food being served.
Staff were very slow to clear the tables and people actually left as they couldn't find a clean table to sit at.
Not really representative of a typical british pub

“Drinks”

We called at the pub, which was comfortable and served a good pint of lager for £2.90. We did not eat here as the menu was a little basic. Would call again for a beer

“Unwelcoming”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

My friend and I went to this pub with our tour group. The staff were incredibly unfriendly, service at the bar and at tables was non-existent. The food looked and smelled awful. We did not stay long because it was so dingy.
