Best Bars and Pubs in Westminster

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, food is tasty pub grub - you can't go wrong with one of their pies, with fillings such as slow-cooked beef rib and confit duck.

Not far from Tate Britain, The Morpeth Arms' walls are decked out with portraits of the illustrious and great. Head into the 'Spying Room' for views of the MI6 building and the Thames, not a bad backdrop to work through a great choice of cask ales, craft beer and a long wine list.
