Definitely on my opinion one of the best and most characteristic pub in London. The interiors are stunning, there is even a huge tree inside. Have multiple room on different floor, so if you want to have a beer in a quiet spot you can...More

Visited here early afternoon and place was empty which lost the atmosphere. It’s clearly a trip advisor classic with lots of tourists. However lots of different beers on offer, the place is huge and really unique decor. Definitely worth at least a drink in.

Waxy’s is a great venue. Spread over three floors descending under London, its increasingly high ceiling as you descend to the main bottom bar means it is not claustrophobic, but the nooks and crannies equally give it an intimate feel in places. The use of...More

Mate, this place is super busy at the weekend but it's also really expensive. There are much better places than this nearby! Have a look around!
