Good pub for a Guinness which it is famed for. And they pour it right. Not much to look at though what I love is street drinking and you can like most London pubs stand outside with your pint which most do.more
This place is as authentic as it gets. Easily the best Guinness I've had in London, and one of the best pints of beer I've had in my life. The pub is very tiny, and is lined with hundreds of Guinness posters and Irish decorations. They have the standard Guinness branded pint glasses, but for the first time that I've seen they even had the similar Guinness branded half-pint glasses.
Decided to stop by here with my guy as we strolled along the road. We didn't interact much with the patrons or bartenders. An order was placed for two Guinness beers.
There's a lovely display of parrots on the ceiling. If you're too busy looking out the door or somewhere else.. you might miss the display.more
I was there in Feb of 1995 with Kenny Costello, JoAnne, her sister, and a rowdy bunch of friends. Kevin was tending bar. Kenny and I were the Americans. In the pic, I'm on the right and Kenny is the laughing man just to the lower left. I think we fit in well. Best pints, not just in London, but in most everywhere. Kenny has passed on, but I'm still here to yelp about that 20-year old...more
Despite being super busy all time, this place always brings a smile to my face. The crowds spilling out onto the streets only adds to the vibe and of course one of the best pints of Guiness you can get in soho.more
