When in England, do as the English do and head out for a night at the pub. After numerous visits to London, here is my lists of the four best places in central London to grab a pint:
Harp (Covent Garden)
47 Chandos Place, WC2N 4HS
The Harp is a cozy pub with a friendly staff and a great selection of local cider. The selection changes often but is always fresh and includes seasonal varieties. Make sure to get there early if you want a chair. It gets busy!
Ye Olde Mitre Tavern (Clerkenwell)
1 Ely Court, (Ely Place side of 8 Hatton Garden), EC1N 6SJ
This ancient pub was originally built in 1546 and has great atmosphere. Follow the medieval alleyways to the entrance and enjoy the great variety of beer and classic pub fare.
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese (The City)
145 Fleet Street, EC4A 2BU
This pub is a Fleet Street staple that was rebuilt in 1667. It has all kinds of nooks and crannies, and holds a lot of history as one of the oldest pubs in the city. Grab a pint, some pub food and remember old London.
The Harrison (Bloomsbury)
28 Harrison St London WC1H 8JF
The Harrison isn’t your average pub, its more of a gastro-pub with fantastic food, a good selection of gluten free fare and candle lit ambiance.
