I had a lunch at Skinners Arms of Hake (fish) rather than the fish & chips because the fish & chips looked like more than I could eat and Hake was certainly healthier. I ordered wisely the Hake was very good. The meal came with...More

This was by far the best experience my husband and I had in the 4 days we spent in London. Our only regret is that we did not find it on our first night but thankfully found it on our last. The Fish and Chips...More

A traditional looking pub that does food at decent prices. Reason I titled this as fast food is down to how quick my bangers and mash, along with my friends meals came out. Overall food was good. If you’re passing and something to soak up...More

We have been to this pub after my graduation and it was fantastic. We have been back three times and recommend the food. WC could be a bit cleaner.

My husband and I have visited London twice, and both times we've eaten at the Skinners Arms several times. The owner, Craig, remembered us on our second trip and was unfailingly helpful and charming. Ask him what the name of the pub means--it's a good...More

This is an old-style Victorian boozer near Euston & Kings Cross, with the old-style high ceilings and ornate decoration. The beers on offer are not top-notch craft, but a few nondescript brown liquids, and the usual standard range of mass market products/ brand-names. Big, busy,...More

In this day and age, good pubs are rapidly vanishing either by closing or changing their character that they cease to be what they used to be. Thankfully some are still around and the Skinners Arms is one. Inside, it is just what you expect...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.

tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
