Get a window seat and watch the world go by. Stairs to dining upstairs. Bat food. Ladies loo's upstairs. Mens down some stairs. Dont know where you'd go if you cant manage stairs. Food looks lovely..... in the menu. But its pretty easy to forget it once its been delivered and eaten. Nice atmosphere. Be a great pub if you... More

Popped in for a pre dinner drink. It's big and angular (on a corner) and very noisy. Mind you, it was about 5:30 and full of young working people do that's to be expected. I'd go back as I liked it.

With evening drawing in, on the way from Buckingham Palace towards Soho, we stumbled upon this old pub and popped in for a beer, opting to stand outside and enjoy a cold Peroni. It was pretty busy and all there seemed to be enjoying themselves. They serve food too but at the time we weren’t hungry and moved on. Long... More

We really enjoyed this pub!! Even if it was saturday at lunch, we had to wait only 20 minutes or so to get one of the tastiest lunch of our short break in London. We had two outstanding steak ale and chicken mushrooms pies, really amazing, and a deliciously rich chocolate fudge cake and an Oreo cheesecake which was superb,... More

Awesome dining experience at the Glassblower, all time favorite in London. Staff is as always friendly and prone to satisfy clients needs. We ordered some pints and classic British dishes (truly appreciated by my Yankee husband!), shortly after our food came out and was delicious we ordered more drinks (great selection of spirits too!). Definitely a solid choice for drinks... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
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 most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
