Just like Buckingham Palace, beefeaters or black taxis, the pub is a bastion of London’s metropolitan landscape and a key link to the city’s past – from its dimly lit, Tudor ale houses to glamorous, Art Deco gin bars in Mayfair. Behind their timber shutters and iron casement windows they have witnessed many illicit encounters or clandestine treaties, often conjured up by influential forces in the mellow glow of their inglenook fireplaces.
These days it’s the best place for a splendid London night out – where guests can savor the city’s backstories over a pint of brew or sample from an infinite selection of cocktails – or; better still- stay the night. With so many pubs to choose from (after all, it is the city with the greatest number of pubs in the world), picking the right place can be a challenge. We’ve rounded up eight of the best pubs with rooms in London for you.
