Fancy a Pint? Try One of These Top 10 Pubs


Every month, the folks at Fancyapint? get together to vote for their top ten favourite pubs. These are recently visited pubs that for one reason or another (the ambience, the booze, the company) stuck in their collective memory. Kindly, these booze-savvy Fancyapinters have decided to share their latest picks with Londonist and all our readers. Cheers!

Here’s the current list from Fancyapint? in no particular order of merit. They assure us that all ten pubs are quality establishments.

  • Jerusalem Tavern rated 5 pints (Farringdon, London)
    ... One of a kind - with excellent own-brewed beers.
  • Betsey Trotwood rated 3 pints (Clerkenwell, London)
    ... A fine Shepherd Neame pub.
  • Cock Tavern rated 3 pints (Smithfield, London)
    ... Vegetarians look away now.
  • Golden Eagle rated 4 pints (Marylebone, London)
    ... A jolly time to be had by all in this tiny, tiny pub.
  • Prince Arthur rated 4 pints (Euston, London)
    ... Breaking the rule that states pubs next to stations must be universally awful.
  • Sekforde Arms rated 4 pints (Clerkenwell, London)
    ... A hidden away, traditional local.
  • The Dovetail Bar rated 4 pints (Clerkenwell, London)
    ... Antwerp in Clerkenwell, how did that happen?
  • The Old Doctor Butler's Head rated 4 pints (London Wall, London)
    ... Old Dr. Butler would have had a fine old time in here.
  • The Water Poet rated 3 pints (Spitalfields, London)
    ... The antithesis of the smart bar - and all the better for it.
  • The Greenwich Union rated 4 pints (Greenwich, London)
    ... Another own-brew pub that shows the big boys how it should be done.
