Cosy Pubs in London

One of the finest and long-lasting establishments of the UK: the British Pub. Whether you’re looking to rest your legs, enjoy a traditional meal, or a cool refreshing pint, a pub can be found around every corner in London, and there are all different types. If you’re looking for the warm, welcoming public houses, then make sure to take a look at the following options,

The Dove

A riverside pub is a must if you’re looking for cosy. The Dove, however, boasts Charles II, Nell Gwynne and Ernest Hemingway as some of its past patrons, being an 18th Century Hammersmith local watering hole. If you’re tall, you may have to duck down to weave through the place, but it has some amazing beers and you can even enjoy a view of the Fuller’s Brewery.

The Holly Bush

Holly Mount at the top of Hampstead High Street is a bit of an uphill struggle, but when you get there there will be a pint waiting for you – at the Grade II listed Holly Bush. They have a good range of ales, great food, and it is a bar that holds its original authenticity.

Flask Tavern

The Flask located in Highgate is a pub brimming with history. Its past patrons include Byron, Shelley and Keats, and this place is full of authentic history. What’s more, you may even see some familiar faces here as Kate Moss lives just opposite the pub, but its dimly lit interior and private nooks and crannies might make it difficult to spot them. The food also follows the seasons, giving you a great mixture of traditional pub grub.

The White Bear

In Kennington, the White Bear has been one of the neighbourhood’s most loved pubs for over 200 years, and its recent transformation into a Young’s pub last year caused some controversy. Nevertheless, the warm atmosphere has sinced return and people love to hang out in this beautiful establishment. They also offer some trendy London craft bottled beers, and a traditional pub food menu.
