WHY WE LOVE THIS BAR...

Run by two of our favourite Irishmen, this is one of London’s best neighbourhood gems and the closest to the Emerald Isle you’re likely to get in the capital. It’s home to London’s smallest Irish pub (hidden right at the back), they stock proper Taytos and of course the Guinness is good! The ethos here is to make people feel absolutely welcome the moment they step in the door and they’ve done just that – modern Irish hospitality at its best. Low-lit lighting, exposed brick walls and leather seats around the place, give it that authentic pub-feel with drinks that are pure class – there’s a lot of Irish whiskies and a cocktail called ‘WOGAN’ named after Terry Wogan that we order every time.
