Ongoing list of places that I’ve found and loved here in London and in my travels:
London (in no particular order)
Ten Bells – Spitalfields – the ‘Jack the Ripper Pub’
Wool Pack – London Bridge – Lovely outdoor area, good food and good vibes
Churchill Arms – Kensington – Great for instagramming, apparently good thai food
Astronomer – Bishopsgate – They have my favourite pies in London
Smuggler’s Tavern – Warren St. – Really good food, small and packed but good atmosphere!
Smokehouse – Canonbury – My favourite Sunday Roast! Really nice inside, and lovely garden for nicer weather days.
Sun in Splendor – Notting Hill – Second favourite Sunday Roast and lovely pub!
Trafalgar Tavern – Greenwich – Lovely food and huge pub with Thames side dining. I always take visitors here.
The Holly Bush – Hampstead Heath – Honestly I haven’t eaten here yet as I’ve never been smart enough to book in advance! It’s a gorgeous pub up a quiet hill in Hampstead Heath. The staff are friendly and drinks are good.
Biddy Earlys – 25-40 set, cool!
Bollards – Best Irish Stew, feels 1960s cozy
Cleere’s Bar – Divey at first, but very cozy and has great food! (get the soup)
Kyteler’s Inn – First witch trial in Europe, Super old, and very cool place
Dylan Whisky Bar – Hip Whisky Place
The rest are good too:
Matt the Millers – Great traditional Music
Lanigans – Sports bar with nice staff
Brewery Corner – Weird vibe, but awesome craft beer
Paris Texas – Decent BBQ and a wicked IPA
The Kilford Arms – They have a pringles dispenser, nice barmen
Metropole – The Local
The Field – The lad bar, great live music and dancing
An Poc Fada – da Club
Oval Bar – Dublin
