Totally awesome place we found after walking by Big Ben, total old school pub feel with great beers on top. The food is not bad at all and we had one of he best BBQ sauces we have ever tasted.

London solved its notoriously "terrible food" problem by creating another problem.

This pub, and many like it in London, are beautiful visual spectacles. Old buildings, incredible atmosphere, lots of history. But many of them also share another common thread - the "Taylor Walker" menu.

It's a menu that's replicated in what must be dozens of pubs in London. The food is certainly good, but...more
