Ten Of The Cosiest Pubs In London
Baby it’s cold outside.
No really, it is. But that doesn’t stop us exploring our favourite city (so many areas to see), especially when it just gives us more reason to find a cosy pub to settle down in. Think roaring open fires, cosy corners, warming drinks and hearty food.
So we rounded up ten of the cosiest pubs in London. Just make sure to invite us along!
The Holly Bush
You may have seen The Holly Bush all over Instagram, and this quirky little pub sat on a cobbled little street, certainly doesn’t disappoint. With open fires and cosy snugs, hearty comfort food and cask ales inside The Holly Bush, you’ll soon forget about the chill outside.
Dripping in flowers, and crammed with Churchill memorabilia, The Churchill Arms is much loved thanks to its incredible festive display. And inside is just as incredible and loved, with real ales, delicious Thai food and a strong friendly atmosphere.
Laid back, and a great meeting location, Montpelier has that snug vibe wherever you sit. It’s loved by locals, especially for their selection of local beers and ales, and even has a 30-seater cinema playing independent films. So basically, you don’t ever need to leave…
Nestled in the quiet back streets of Kentish Town, The Pineapple oozes character and atmosphere. It’s a hidden gem, but loved by locals and visitors for it’s warm and welcoming feel, wide variety of drinks, and scrumptious Thai dishes. Once you visit here, it’ll be hard to leave.
The Pelton Arms
Warm, inviting and with friendly bar staff, The Pelton Arms is ultra cosy. Not only will you feel like you’re at your nans, as you look at photos of the Queen Mum dotted about, but you won’t go hungry or thirsty with their home-cooked tasty food, and real ales on offer. A best kept secret in Greenwich!
Dreamy outside, dreamier inside. The Albion is a Georgina gem, with wood-panelled walls and log fires, making it the perfect location to entertain, relax and forget the stresses of modern life. They also serve some of the best Sunday lunches around.
Cosy up next to the fire in The Gun, as you look out to exquisite views across the Thames. It’s an ideal spot to relax by the water, with fresh food, gorgeous wines and keep warm from the outside chill. A place you’ll find yourself going back to more than once.
When pies are their passion, you instantly know The Windmill is a cosy pub. Slap bang in the middle of Mayfair, it’s a snug little boozer with hearty pies, craft beers, cask ales and a very friendly atmosphere to boost.
The Royal Oak
Comfortable and stylish, The Royal Oak is loved by locals. Whilst sitting on Columbia Road, it’s still seen as the real gem of the street and is a great spot for drinking beer, tucking into a roast and avoiding those Sunday crowds.
The Duke’s Head
In an idyllic location, The Duke’s Head is based in a Victorian building with a cosy dining room. The views of the river are warming, and the delicious dishes have been cooked to tantalize your taste buds. It’s the type of place you want to be on a weekend.
