The Rose Pub

35 user reviews 4

West London has quite the array of bars and pubs, but none as pretty as The Rose. Not only are they conjuring up a fine array of British plates and pub-led dining, there's also one of the prettiest beer gardens in the city for all of your sunshine needs.

One Over The Ait

43 user reviews 4

All the way in Brentford sits the West London pub you need to visit. One Over the Ait delivers on two floors of charm, including tonnes of outdoor space, while their food and drink really seal the deal. The pumps serve up some of the finest real ale, and the kitchen is all about homemade British cuisine supplied from seasonal, local sources.


767 user reviews 4

Their own onsite brewed craft beer and a circus Big Top to match? Madness! Aeronaut is a whacky West London hangout fullfilling the traditional pub spec whilst hosting a weekly fanfare of shows, events, performances and classes. Take up swing dancing, join in on quiz night, check out some live Jazz or even one of their weekly circus extravaganzas. This place is a kaleidoscopic pub waiting to be explored. 

Belushis Shepherd's Bush

148 user reviews 4

VIP Booth and 4 other offers

Located just second's away from Shepherd's Bush station and minutes away from Westfield White City, Belushi's is the perfect spot for a late-night drink and dance or some post-shopping nosh. Hosting live music throughout the week and screening all major sporting events, this place is always abuzz, and with a generous happy hour - a trip here won't cost the earth either.

The Coat and Badge

278 user reviews 4

Laurel hedges enclose the delightful beer garden of Putney's Coat & Badge. A spacious, relaxed spot that's ideal for chilled drinks in the summer, there's also a relaxed and familiar vibe to enjoy once you're inside. There's a strong and indulgent menu of gastropub favourites (we're talking sausage & mash, fish & chips etc) and a good solid choice of drinks, with all the sport on the big screen and brunch served come the weekends.

Head to Chelsea where this unique bar will have you turning into a key World War Two codebreaker, journeying around the world and sipping on some of the best espresso martinis in the biz. Chelsea Funhouse is the ulitmate Saturday night destination - with enough dancing and debauchery to please even the wildest of West London's partygoers. 

Heist Bank

316 user reviews 5

With a mix of industrial and homely interiors, Heist Bank in Paddington is a unique all-day hangout. Head over to try one of their delicious stone-baked pizzas which come perfectly paired with a craft beer; when you're done eating, challenge your mates of date to a game of pool on their pool table.

Trailer Happiness

18 user reviews 4

A quirky little Notting Hill number with a penchant for all things smothered in rum, don't leave here without having sampled a Banzai45 or a Hell in the Pacific. There's plenty of exceptional cocktails if they don't tick your boxes, and a bundle of Dim Sum treats to nibble on. Soothing DJ sets get underway at the end of the week, and there's a Rum Club on the first Monday of every month.

Royal Oak

120 user reviews 5

Based in North West London, Royal Oak is a family-friendly pub that was built with those lazy weekends in mind. The old mahogany bar serves all the usual suspects, alongside a selection of fine wines and locally sourced ales. Perfect for a Sunday dinner with your family, guests can enjoy a hearty roast dinner while drinking a tangy bloody mary and playing a fun board game. 

Head over to Ealing Broadway where this unique bottleshop and craft beer bar is serving up some of the best craft brews in the capital. Offering a staggering selection of tipples from its 12-strong tap wall, alongside sourdough pizzas and DJ nights, it's swiftly becoming a West London favourite.

Syon Lounge

45 user reviews 3

Located in Syon Park, this award-winning restaurant and shisha lounge is offering up mouthwatering plates. With a head chef who counts stints at Nobu and Hakkasan under his belt, this West London spot is certainly one for sushi and pan-Asian bites.

Simmons Fulham

49 user reviews 4

The cocktail empire has set up a bar in West London for their next vintage styled venture. It's the one and only Simmons force and they're coming to town with the usual spread of cocktail mischief, happy hour madness and kitsch interiors. We recommend their Long Island Ice Tea to kick things off. 

Beaufort House Chelsea

This private members' club offers a refined drinking experience across its stunning four floors. The venue creates a laid back but super chic atmosphere in which to settle down and enjoy a couple of drinks with your nearest and dearest. Cocktails are painstakingly put together, fine wine is never far from the surface and there's a steady tide of champagne if there's cause to celebrate.
