Great traditional British pub in Soho. Food was excellent and they have some really cool gin cocktails, which was a big plus.Read More

Quintessentially British pub - with historic elements. I actually liked the interior but it was super crowded and it is also very small. The service is quick and abrupt, very typical of a pub. I am not sure if I'd come back but if I were looking for a pub in the area I'd probably prefer this one.Read More

Great place for a traditional fish and chips in soho. The upstairs dining area is warm and cozy. There are a few cask ales and it all feels very British. The mushy peas were the best I've had. Highly recommend!Read More

There's dining space upstairs I didn't know about and the woody classic pub décor gives you a comfy casual feel.

We had the gammon egg, a British classic, and the lamb shank pot pie. Both portions were HUGE and you can easily share an entrée between two not super hungry or big eaters. Food was tasty.

Oddly you can't do take away - but apparently that's a London rule I did not know about....Read More

I'm a fan of the books 1984 and Animal Farm so how could I not come check out this pub that the man George Orwell used to frequent. It's somewhat a pretty typical bar in London. It's name is "Animal and Other Animal or Random Object," they have beer sponsors, they have a bathroom that's located down a staircase, the bartenders are nice, there are hand pumped beers.

I pretty much came here...Read More
