Living in London just over a year, I managed to fall in love with some amazing, cozy and old drinking holes.
As a person not born and raised in England, it took me a while to get used to this whole “pub culture”, but i did it and I am completely enjoying it! If you ever planning on visit London, and get a pint, this places are must go.
1. Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese
145 Fleet Street, City of London, EC4A 2BU
This pub sprawls out over at least four levels ! First time i went there, I was completely lost in this maze 😉 It is beautiful, and it’s also s Sam Smiths pub, so cheap drinks and food guaranteed. Oh, and they also have a grey parrot in restaurant section, it is truly adorable.
2.Lamb & Flag
33 Rose Street, Covent Garden, WC2E 9EB
The Lamb & Flag pub, a historic watering hole in Covent Garden, was a favourite with Charles Dickens.
Dating back to 1772 (although it was known as The Coopers Arms until 1833), the Lamb & Flag retains its old-world charm.
The bar offers excellent real ale, beer, wine and spirits, and the kitchen dishes up classic favourites, including Ploughman’s lunches, fish and chips, doorstep sandwiches and roasts on a Sunday.
3. Bradley’s Spanish Bar
44 Hanway St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 1UT
Very compact but amazing place. Bradley’s is split into two even smaller halves, the ground floor with its vinyl jukebox and the cellar-like downstairs bar. One of the best pint pouring places in town.
4. Cittie of Yorke
22 High Holborn London WC1V 6BN
And yet another Sam Smiths boozer on my list. Can’t help i – I love them! In this place a lot of things catches the eye, including the cosy booths along the east wall,wooden beam ceiling, and the great iron fireplace in the centre of the room. If you can, make sure you’ll check out the basement with it’s own bar.
Ok, that one may be the last on my list but it’s definitely not last in my heart. A bit rough rockbar in Soho, The Crobar is a modern legend in London’s late-night, inner-city life. You can find here jukebox and nice choice of bourbon 😉
