The Barley Mow

A neighbourhood pub that's become a popular post-work spot, The Barley Mow is a great choice for a quick pint or casual bite to eat. They've got everything from chicken and chorizo pies to plant-based burgers on the menu, with a cracking choice of Sunday roasts as well.

Victoria Taps, Westminster

Decked out in white tile walls and wooden floors, Victoria Taps in Westminster is known for its cracking selection of craft beers, real ales, premium lagers and spirits. They also offer artisan cocktails, or fantastic coffee if you're not drinking, alongside delicious hand-stretched pizzas or burgers to keep you fuelled as you enjoy live sport here, or just kick back in their comfy leather booths.

The Feathers

A short walk from Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey, The Feathers is a cheerful boozer that churns out crowd-pleasing grub and cask ales. Housed in a gorgeous Victorian building, it's got all the hallmarks of a traditional pub - with open fireplaces and leather chairs.

The Speaker, London

Found just a short walk from Westminster Abbey, The Speaker is the perfect place to hole up, whether it's for after-work drinks or a pitstop between sightseeing. The cosy yet trendy space is pouring out tasty tipples galore, including ale, beer and wine.

Marquis Of Granby Westminister

A stone's throw from the Palace of Westminster, don't be surprised to see a famous face or two at Marquis of Granby. The spot is named after an 18th Century war hero, and is pretty old school, with a huge oak bar and clackety furniture. As one would expect, the food here is hearty pub grub - you can't go wrong with one of their pies.
