Best pubs in London

We’re building a new website of the best pubs in London (mostly as voted for by Londonist readers). We still have a few areas to explore but we’re asking readers to take a look through what we have so far, and let us know what we’ve missed and where we need to visit next.

Top reviews

  • Human magpies delight as new art installation at Korean Cultural Centre is both shiny and climbable

  • Exceptional artefacts: Ming at British Museum
  • Escape Rooms at London Bridge: will you make it out in time?
  • Young gallery The Unit London exhibits modern portraiture in Covent Garden
  • Next Fall at Southwark Playhouse is a very clever gay 'dramedy'
  • Turner Prize 2014 underwhelms
  • Nightmarish scenarios make Witches and Wicked Bodies at British Museum a fantastical exhibition
  • Electric in Electra: Kristin Scott Thomas empowers the production at Old Vic
  • Speed the Plow is, ahem, somewhat lacking (to put it mildly)
