    Expensive, slow, chain pub with nasty toilets.

    Nicholsons Pale Ale was great; a smile and conversation from the barman would have been better after I asked which beer was good.

    Nice little Bolt Hole in The Strand. Guest Beers plus Fuller London Pride. Head downstairs if the bar is too crowded.

    I can't respect a pub where the bar staff, when asked "do you have any porters on tap?" respond by asking "what's that?"

    One of my top ten London pubs. How they can maintain the atmosphere of a local in the very heart of London I'll never know, but they do and it's a nice place for a pint.

    Appalling - £5.95 for a pre-mixed bloody Mary consisting of a bottle of spiced tomato juice and a splash of Worcester sauce which tastes awful. The positive - they exchanged the drink.

    Distinctive traditional pub, rumoured to have been the Savoy Hotel's coal cellar. Gilbert and Sullivan performed here. Head down to the basement where it's a bit quieter.

    As there's a recession on don't go spending all your spare cash on gin and tonic! 2 litres of White Lightening from Lidl should do you! :-)

    £4.85 for a single gin and tonic, don't they know there's a recession on?

    If the bar is crowded (as it often is) there's a large basement bar worth trying.

    Паб переполнен, люди его распирают и оседают в соседнем переходе, от чего здесь не протолкнуться. Но выпить бокал вина перед представлением-отлично
  • Diego A.
    Tienes que ir a pedir la comida y la cerveza a la barra, esta delicioso todo.
