Boleyn Tavern

Boleyn Tavern

This pub was editorially chosen for inclusion by Londonist because of its fine interior.

As football pubs go, the Boleyn (pronounced here like bowling without the 'g') isn't playing a boring defensive game. This gorgeous old building sprawls back, back and further back into a series of rooms that wouldn't look out of place in a stately home, culminating in the grandiose former billiard room at the back (now occupied by a diminutive pool table). It'll look stately, that is, if you come on a quiet weekday afternoon. When Saturday comes and the Hammers are at home, matters will be very different. The drinks choice is geared up to the lager-drinking sports fan stereotype. Ale drinkers still get a couple of choices, but one was off on our visit. But really, this places is all about the football.

Word of warning...don't ask the locals who this Moore fellow was.
