Tiny cosy pub with charm. 5 real ales and friendly service and atmosphere. Interesting mosaic tiles to watch while drinking Tribute from cask.

A cosy (or perhaps ícrampedí) pub with a range of ales typical of a Nicholsonís. The bar itself, the one from which you order, seems not to have been judiciously planned, as itís quite a tight fit (at least it was on my Saturday evening visit) between the bar and the wall. Iím sure under less busy circumstances this pub would have a bit more charm, but on my stop it was just too crowded around the bar. I found a new Brains beer on tap (a bitter, if youíre interested) but there really wasnít anything terribly exciting. The beers are not cheap here (mine was £1.90 for a half of the aforementioned bitter, a relatively low ABV offering at 4.2%) but I guess thatís the price you pay for drinking in Soho. This place isnít a destination pub, but as with all Nicholsonís pubs Iíd say it is worth checking out if youíre nearby. Also, there are not many better options than a Nicholsonís pub in this part of town.

Nice, traditional pub in the middle of Soho, run by Nicholsonís. Quite small, but the dark wood and the beautifully tiled walls make it a pleasant place for an afternoon pint. Nice and friendly service. Good selection of cask ales, London Pride is usually on, and thereís a steady stream of interesting and well kept guest ales. Good pub food. Worth a visit.

Nice cozy pub in Soho. When owner saw my friend and me rating beers he went to the cellar and opened more casks so that we could try more samples - and all those extras were free. Cant blame the service here :) Food was fine too.

Traditional Soho Pub (owned by Nicohlsons) renowned for itís endorsement of real ale. Regularly has seasonal ales from different brewers from around the UK, alongside regulars including London Pride. Pub is very traditionally fitted inside with the original fittings. Said to be the watering hole of George Orwell and bar area named in his honour. However, is pretty small upstairs although regulars usually drink outside in Summer. I like the beer here, but the crowd is always a bit old and grungy for Soho. But if you want traditional old fashioned slightly smelly pub then this is your place.
