London has many famous and celebrated public houses.
Here are just some of the good pubs I have enjoyed in Central London.
The Blue Posts, in Rupert Street near Berwick Street, W1 is a traditional, down to earth English pub.
The Blue Posts serves real ale and some basic filling food (at lunchtimes). Almost always full, it can be difficult to find somewhere to sit down - not so important if you are just popping in for a quick half of real ale.
Being in the middle of SOHO, the Blue Posts attracts media personalities and media industry workers, both at lunchtimes and in the evenings, so if you are a people watcher you can enjoy yourself seeing the lifeblood of SOHO pass before your eyes.
The Blue Posts, 28 Rupert Street, Soho, W1.
Nearest Undergound: Picadilly Circus / Leicester Square.
The Intrepid Fox is in Wardour Street in the very heart of Soho. It is a music pub and celebrates rock n roll, heavy metal and punk.
The walls of the Intrepid Fox are decorated with music posters and there are freaky and wierd sculptures, skulls and skeletons hanging from the ceilings and walls.
Atmospheric and loud, the Intrepid Fox is definitely a different experience and worth a visit.
The Intrepid Fox, 99 Wardour Street, Soho, W1.
Nearest Undergound: Leicester Square / Picadilly Circus.
