That number is down on the 11 London pubs which made the grade last year, but not too poor a show when you consider the prominence of countryside locations on the list.
The capital’s top performer was also the list’s highest new entry — The Truscott Arms in Maida Vale. We’ve positively reviewed the pub’s dining room, included it on our selection of London’s best Sunday roasts, and placed it second in our list of 2014’s hottest restaurants — so needless to say we reckon its positioning here is very well deserved.
Bloomsbury’s The Lady Ottoline is ranked at 29, up from 35, while Islington’s Smokehouse and Kensal Green’s The Parlour are new entries at 33 and 50 respectively. The Eagle in Farringdon — which first coined the term gastropub and has been trading since 1991 — held strong at 40, up from 43.
As in previous years, there's a bias towards north and west London with the east of the city particularly poorly represented — Farringdon is the closest it gets.
