8 great places to grab a pint

Lulu Le Vay, March 2018

It’s London beer week! So, in celebration of what us Brits do best, here is our guide to London’s best boozers, from pints in posh glasses to lager in steel tankards. Hic!

The Coach & Horses (29 Greek Street, Soho, London W1D 5DH)
Has to be at the top of our list. A Soho institution. Vegetarian and vegan pub, with no music, and more local characters singing along to the piano than you can shake a carrot at.


The Southampton Arms (139 Highgate Road, London NW5 1LE)
Talking of pianos, this diminutive but atmospheric gem in North London has locals tinkling their ivories, as well as boasting an envious range of ales and pork bap sarnies.


The Gun
If you want to be in with the cool crowd, then head to the Gun immediately. Small, fun, great music and amazing food. What’s not to love?


Primo Bar (Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge, London SE1 7UT)
Fancy escaping for an afternoon in the heart of London? Primo Bar is the ideal spot. You can sip from a posh glass in this spacious and extremely comfortable lounge bar plus live music every night. You might not leave…

The Auld Shillelagh (105 Stoke Newington Church Street, London N16 0UD)
The best Irish pub for quality beers and an authentic fiddle (we mean music, deviants) in buzzing Stoke Newington.


The Trinity Arms (45, Trinity Gardens, Brixton, London SW9 8DR)
This Brixton pub has been the fabric of the community for over two decades. A hop, skip, and a pint away from the hectic high street, this is the perfect haven for a beer and burger.


The Rake (14a Winchester Walk, London SE1 9AG)
This is a fantastic boozer for craft beer lovers. However, be prepared to splash out – a pint of Cloudwater North West Double IPA will set you back £13.40.


The French House (49 Dean Street, Soho, London W1D 5BG)
Another must-visit Soho institution. Actors, writers and locals mingle and actually converse – no phones or screens allowed, and no music played.
