A Guide to Pubs in Fitzrovia
After a long day manoeuvring around the busy West End streets or a tiring day at the office, nothing beats an evening relaxing in your favourite pub.
Fitzrovia is home to a generous collection of pubs that are perfect for sports night with the lads, a quiet one after work or a hearty Sunday Roast with the family. With so many to choose from, it only seems fair to visit them all in order to pick your favourite.
Located on the bustling foodie region of Fitzrovia, Charlotte Street, the Fitzroy Tavern is the epitome of good ol’ English tradition. The vast drinks menu and quintessentially British décor give this pub its charm and character, no wonder it has been the favourite of many famous writers, past and present, including the popular Dylan Thomas. In addition, the Fitzroy Tavern is the starting point of the famous literary bar crawl in London, so gather up your friends and get those rounds in!
The Draft House
Specialising in fine ale, The Draft House on Charlotte Street is the place to go if you want to sample a range of produce from a variety of different breweries. As well as boasting a tempting assortment of ales, the bar food is one of the things that keeps the punters coming back for more, who can blame them when ‘foot-long scratchings’ and ‘our scotch egg with curry mayo’ is up for grabs.
Lore of the Land
Not only does this pub boast an impressive location overlooking Fitzrovia’s landmark, The BT Tower, but it is also owned by the famous Guy Ritchie. This traditional pub has recently been renovated and has been tastefully decorated to still hold the original Victorian-theme. Regulars can enjoy a beer from Guy Ritchie’s own brewery, ‘Gritchie’, which has been cleverly engraved into all glasses, whilst tucking into seasonal plates offering fresh and local produce, keeping with British heritage.
The Fitzrovia Belle
Sitting between Warren Street and Goodge Street Tube stations, The Fitzrovia Belle Public House and Hotel is a great asset to the area and is the perfect place to wine, dine and socialise with friends. The four flat-screen Sony TVs make this pub the perfect spot to watch sporting events and relax with a pint. Diners can also enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner as there is an extensive all-day menu to drool over - you know an award-winning rare breed beef burger makes sense.
The Crown and Sceptre
Park yourself down on one of the cosy armchairs in The Crown and Sceptre and take a breather after a long day of shopping or a manic day at the office. Boasting meal deals, free Wi-Fi and ‘one of Central London’s sunniest street terraces,’ this pub is a favourite amongst locals for a reason; after all, there is nothing better than home-cooked pub grub and your favourite tipple.
