Wonderful decor and a good pint and a half of Guiness. You don't need to be too tall to go downstairs to the loo! Very quiet before the lunchtime rush? Enjoyed

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
