Still a nice little pub. Decent selection of real ales. Much less commercial feeling than many of Nicholson's other properties. Food is good (standard Nicholson fare) but service getting it to the table is pretty slow. Getting an ale at the bar is usually pretty quick but the bartenders seem to be rushed and flustered even when the place is pretty empty.

When weather is decent, it's possible...more

Decent pub on The Strand just along from The Savoy Hotel. The bar downstairs is much quieter than the pub and there is an outside standing/smoking area overlooking the rear of The Savoy Theatre.

A steady performer.more

Last night, I visited The Coal Hole with my boyfriend and his parents. This was my first London pub experience and it happened to be a place that my boyfriend's father used to go with his father!

We had a quick 1/2 pint for the sake of going to a pub on our first night in London. The Coal Hole was packed and we took our beers outside.

The Coal Hole is bigger than it appears on the outside...more

Sometimes my husband and I end a fun day of exploring a new city with a short pub hop, and this popular place right on the Strand seemed like the a good stop along the way. On a Saturday afternoon, the place was PACKED. Diners, drinkers and tag-alongers were all there - on the ground floor and upstairs - enjoying the selection of brews.

I decided to try the Shark Bite / Shark Head?...more

Cozy! I like cozy british pubs!

This used to be a coal storage.

Good selection if draughts - several ales and IPAs. That will do it for me!

Pale ale pint is £3.80. Wow!more
