My top 5 pubs in London

Jump to last reply

I lived in London for 3 years before grudgingly moving back home. A week ago I had the opportunity to pop back into town (one year after leaving) and had to decide which pubs I absolutely needed to revisit because of my limited time. It was a painful choice to narrow so many wonderful pubs down to a few, but here are the places I absolutely couldn't resist spending time in again. Here are my 5. Anyone else want to boil down theirs?
1) The Holly Bush in Hampstead. A very country-ish pub with good food, wonderful atmosphere and location. Tricky to find. Exit Hampstead tube and walk right. Half a block in, look across the street for small stairway going up the hill. Keep walking and you will run into The Holly Bush.
2.) Had to pay a visit to the incredible Ye Olde Mitre (off of Hatton st). Nothing like the atmosphere (both in the alley way and inside the two rooms and upstairs), the good ale with a bit of scotch egg with mustard to line the stomach. It's a classic.
3) The Lamb and Flag in Covent Garden never fails to take me all the way back in time as well.. Amazingly raw and unchanged.
4) The Flask in Highgate is a personal favorite for sitting in the outdoor area on a fine day, perhaps for Sunday roast.
5) The Seven Stars, behind the Courts of Justice. An evocative street and great little pub with nice landlady and resident cat.
