The best authentic pub in London. We walked in as four American ladies and felt "the regular" vibe right away. We thought one beer and we'll go. Then we started chatting and it turned into the most welcoming bar we've ever visited! We made quick friends with the staff and were laughing and drinking for hours to come.

Just enjoy the vibe, drink some beers and look forward to the next dish....more
