Smaller Nicholsonís bar close to China town and Shaftsbury Avenue. The beer range was really threadbare on our visit, couldnít get excited about any of it. Not for me.

Visited on 17th January 2017. Single roomed Nicholsons pub just off Shaftesbury Avenue. Nice decor, plenty of wood panelling and beer decor. Reasonable range of European beers plus a bit of UK cask and keg. Also a bottle list which looked OK. Popular place but service still good. Prices decent. Not a bad spot overall.

Quite a big place with decent wooden furnitures. Nice service and good food. We had sausages and macaroni/cheese. Beers were not that exciting, though.

Dutch bar in Chinatown. Ok selection; catíre recall everything they had, but I had a pint of Fruli. Gets pretty rammed.

Not strictly Soho, but very close, just off the central area of Chinatown. This is tourist heavy twin floored bar in a traditional design that is a magnet for the Dutch when national fever is up. You can get both Dutch and Belgian beers and ales here but if you are expecting a range similar to those in the Netherlands then you will be somewhat disappointed. Give its location it is expensive in here too. This is a Nicholsonís pub so you can expect a certain quality if you do enter here.

I treat myself to a visit to De Hems whenever Iím in Soho. First class Belgium and other European beers; delightful Dutch style platters and an imaginative range of other tasty dishes served by staff who actually seem to enjoy being friendly and efficient makes De Hems a great experience. Even on a Saturday afternoon with the bar area packed, we were still served quickly and with a smile of welcome. I never tire of De Hems and thoroughly recommend it.

pitiful excuse for a Dutch bar, they had Vedett then the rest of the beers were Belgian staples, not worth stopping by

In the tourist haven of Soho, just outside Chinatown. It is like walking into a Dutch bar, which is what it is! Thursday lunchtime and it is fairly full, tourists and office workers vie for the best tables, my wife, son and myself are just having a couple before a show. So a mixed bag of friendly customers really. It does get a lot busier in the evenings, weekends even more so. Service with a smile, good choice for tourist London. Not the cleanest Dutch bar Iíve been in, but not the grubbiest either. Well worth popping in, if you fancy a change from cask beer and want a Belgian or Dutch drink.
