If you're in London and looking for a joint to get a plate of fish and chips and a Guinness to wash it down, there are two options on the table. Either you hop on a Dublin bound ferry, or you head down to the Tipperary on London's Fleet Street for an authentically Irish experience. The Tipperary was established over 400 years ago and has earned the distinction of calling itself the oldest Irish Pub in London. Amongst time-tested standards like Fish and Chips, and Bangers and Mash, the menu includes a wide array of Irish Pub food favorites. The bar also stocks other English Ales and is included in The Good Beer Guide's annual list of high quality pubs.
As with every pub on London's historic Fleet Street, The Old Bell has a story that is intertwined into the areas past as home of the British Press. The spot was originally a coffee house where comment and gossip were written down and passed around, henceforth the evolution of newspapers. The tavern was established in 1670 as a watering hole for the men working on St. Brides Church and has since become the “second office” for many of London's finest reporters. From the cozy, cottage-like interior, to the glistening dark wood counter tops, The Old Bell has many of the charming characteristics that people throughout the world expect in a British pub. What sets the tavern apart from many of its contemporaries is its menu that prides itself in perfecting pub cuisine staples, such as their highly praised take on Bangers and Mash. If you are looking for a British Pub that perfects its principals instead of building upon them, follow the British Press' lead and head down to the Old Bell.

Since first opening its doors in the mid 1800's, London's Punch Tavern has been serving pints of ale with an elegance that is only matched by its decor. The tavern once played home to writers of the satirical, Punch magazine. The interior houses comics from the magazines past issues, making it feel like an antique store as much as a pub. In the past few years there has been a bit of controversy brewing over the pub's new direction; away from a standard London pub, and nearing cafe territory. Whether the outcome of this squabble, The Punch Tavern remains a timeless place to stop in for a pint of Boddingtons and some top grade pub food.
Wagamama serves up a pan-Asian cuisine that features a fusion of eclectic traditional favorites with modern flavors. The fare is made fresh and all items are featured on a dietary menu, allowing guests full access to the ingredients in their food. Orders are taken via electronic pads, meaning that preparation begins in the kitchen as soon as you have made a choice on what to order. Dishes come to the table in the order that they are prepared, which can be problematic for groups who want to eat together. Start off with a range of dumplings, or dive right into the kare noodle soups. The atmosphere is also a major draw with lots of open, light space and minimalist decor. The end result is a dining experience that has only grown in popularity as new locations have opened worldwide.
The Martin brothers have scored another one with this swan song and you can't go wrong when you experiment around a little. The White Swan Pub & Dining Room has two floors with a mezzanine area. Now that answers all your queries for space, space and more space! While the ground floor is devoted to a pub, the mezzanine section is usually booked for private parties. For scrumptious European fare, take the stairs to the first floor. Only there you may place your orders for the Roast Partridge with a Quince Choux Farci and Juniper Gravy. Keep the Steak & Kidney Suet Pudding to round off your meal.
