Standard Nicholson's. Classic 'Want peanuts with that pint?' upsell for the tourists but to be fair they do back off. Decent choice for a work night booze if you're in the area as it's much better than all the other places that won't be too busy, unless you fancy a 10 min trek into the nether regions of Fitzrovia.more

Great little pub in the Carnaby area of Soho, handy for a pre dinner drink or a post shopping drink. They have a good gin selection, but the staff aren't educated, so point to what you can see on the shelf!more

Want you in and out far to quick for me. It really wasn't that busy.

Food: Average/poor

Pubs in this area are always going to be crowded - and the Clachan is - but they also tend to lack any real character because of the high level of traffic and lack of locals. However, the Clachan definitely has its regulars, and the d├ęcor feels warm, welcoming, and well thought out. The beer selection is...more
