The Districts
The coordinates [123 A1] locates the area in the Geographer's AZ London Street Atlas, the small book. That is page 123 and grid A1. This is a big area in London's West End and to make my life easy I did not break the pubs into groups.

Soho
Tucked between Oxford St, Charring Cross Road, Shaftesbury Avenue and Regent Street. Soho is the hub of activity all hours of the night. But the pubs still close at 11 PM.

Mayfair
Fashionable Mayfair is in stark contrast to its neighbor Soho. Between Regent Street, Park Lane, Oxford St and Piccadilly, it is the fashionable place to be seen. The US Embassy is here at Grosvenor Square.

Marylebone & Fitzrovia
North of Oxford Street to Regent's Park and West of Tottenham Court Road and East of Edgware Road. Give or take.

The Pubs

Admiral Duncan (Scottish-Courage) Soho [140 A9]
54 Old Compton St W1 near Wardour St
Phone 020 7437-5300
Tottenham Court Road or Leicester Square stations

One can not miss the paint job out side.

Angel Tavern (Samuel Smith) Marylebone [139 H6]
Also called the Angel in the Field
37 Thayer St W1 at Marylebone Lane
Phone 020 7486-7763
Bond Street station

A very decorative, Victorian pub. My impression as I sat in this pub was being in an old English Manor house far from the city. Completely surrounded by English Oak and leaded windows to keep the outside distractions out of sight, one should not be in too much of a hurry to drink fast.

Argyll Arms (Nicholson's) Soho [139 L8]
18 Argyll St W1 off Oxford St
Phone 020 7734-6117
Oxford Circus station

This is a beautiful example of how pubs looked at one time. As you enter the ornate cut glass hall leads to two cozy saloon bars. Further back is a larger lounge bar. One can find interesting Real Ale here. Closed Sunday.

The Argyll Arms is an excellent example of type of pub that was popular in the late 1800's through the mid-1900's. It is one pub with a number of bars. The first two rooms you see upon entering are what where called Public Bars. These bars were for the working man of the day. The room in the rear was the saloon bar. This was a lounge bar for people that were well of. It was a nicer looking room but the price of a pint was a bit more.

Audley (Scottish-Courage) Mayfair [145 H1]
41 Mount St W1 at South Audley St
Phone 020 7499-1843
Bond Street station

Take a good look inside and you will see two different bars side by side. One side was a saloon bar and the other the public house. At one time this separated people by class. Food server at one end, fireplace at the other and a beautiful ceiling clock in the middle. Two blocks south from the US Embassy.

This splendid Edwardian pub is very comfortable any time of the day and still in pristine condition. Just two blocks south from the US Embassy it's in an upscale part of town. Take a good look inside and you will see two different bars side by side. One side was a lounge bar for the upper crust and the other side was the public house for people like me. People are no longer separated due to their station in life and you could end up talking to a famous actor. A food server at one end, fireplace at the other and a beautiful ceiling clock in the middle.

Phone 020 7437-0847

This is a larger pub in the middle of the block. It is very nice looking but it is not a pub of yesteryear. None the less it should not be passed by if you are one of the younger (under 30) readers. I think that I saw this pub was closed during my January 2000 tour. Let me know if it is open, thank you.

It has some of the best stained glass you will see in any pub. Look for Sir Edward Hillary and other champions, hence the name. Bring your camera on a sunny day. Also the best place to stop if shopping on Oxford St. Come back at night also. It will have a different atmosphere about the place.

This was not a terribly neat looking pub but they serve traditional English Ale so we have reason to stop in. The staff was friendly and the beer was kept well. They are closed on Sunday since they are away from the main traffic.

Mirrors are still in the ceiling so the coachmen, drinking in one bar, could see when their employers where drinking up in the other bar. This is a typical pub that was separated for the haves and have-nots.

A small and friendly pub despite being French. Just don't have your mobile phone go off. This pub was taken over by the French resistance during the war and still flies the tricolor. You can buy beer here but only half-pints.

19 Great Portland St W1

I walked by this pub for three days before I realized that it was a pub. It looks more like a nightclub but brewing equipment stands at the rear of the room. The beers are very good but a bit more in price than older pubs. I do recommend stopping in.

Phone 020 7437-1179
Tottenham Court Road station

A splendid yet slender Real Ale pub. It is rather small inside with very little room between the bar and back wall. Further back the room opens wide on an elevated seating area. Being a S&N pub means they have fine real ales on tap. Can’t fine it? It’s behind Foyles bookstore on Charing Cross Rd.

Red Lion Mayfair [145 J2]
1 Waverton W1 at Charles St
Green Park station

A beautiful and tiny pub tucked away at the end of Charles Street. It is away from the tourist routes and is used mostly by the locals and office workers. Open 7 days a week.
Charles Street is in a very quiet residential area. The sidewalk near the pub is so narrow one must step out into the street to get around waste bags the night before collection. Reaching for the door brings a sense of stepping back in time. If anything you step into a well-respected pub that radiates warmth. A food service is on the left and a multi-star restaurant is toward the rear. Seating is to the right and a small room is in the rear.
