For a more laidback option, enjoy a pint at the Duke of Wellington, a traditional London pub that attracts a slightly older (30 plus) gay crowd. The atmosphere at "the Welly" is friendly and drinkers spill out onto the pavements in the summer months. A great place to soak up the Soho atmosphere!

Plus, the beers are cheap (no fancy beers, had Grolsch, Carling, Kronenburg, Tetley's and several other mass market beers that were fine, but nothing... more

Great drink and friendly crowd, usually here solo on business trips and always get greeted by friendly locals that make me feel at home. more
