What caught my eye as I walked around Piccadilly Circus was a sign on the side of this pub that said it was famous for its award winning fish and chips so we decided to try it. Busy pub no doubt and I walked in confused and waited for someone to put us on a waiting list/bring us to a seat only to realize that you can actually sit anywhere you like as long as you can find a table that is free....more

An ok pub. Full of tourists and standard ale. I don't mind it but I don't love it. I suppose anything within earshot of the bright lights of Piccadilly is something I won't frequent much. It's a good quick stop off I will say that.more

This is a nice British pub in Piccadilly Circus, but unlike most, this is not one just full of regulars, this place is definitely for us tourists, as both my wife and I were in this particular case!

It seems a popular place, very busy at 9pm as indeed any pub is in this country, and I should know since I actually am from the UK originally and have frequented many! Service was really friendly...more
