Seven Great Pubs within a Mile of Buckingham Palace

If you’re in London to see Buckingham Palace and are looking for somewhere to relax nearby, then join us on a tour of seven fantastic pubs, all within a leisurely stroll of the home of the King. Picture this: a day spent admiring the grandeur of the palace, followed by a night full of laughter, good company, and even better food and drink. His Majesty would surely approve.



1. The Market Tavern, London

First up is The Market Tavern, a cosy nook tucked away in the stylish Mayfair district. This is more than just a pub; it's a time capsule that transports you back to Victorian London with its Edwardian decor and charming quirkiness. Can't you just feel the warm glow from the fireplace as you sip on a pint of craft beer? Don't miss out on their fair-priced menu, which has earned them a solid 4 out of 5 on Tripadvisor!

2. De Hems Dutch Cafe Bar, London

Next, we whisk you away to Amsterdam without leaving London. Welcome to De Hems Dutch Cafe Bar! With its Dutch beers and gins, you'll be saying "Proost!" (that's "Cheers!" in Dutch) in no time. Isn't it amazing how a simple drink can transport you to a whole new world?


3. Browns Covent Garden, London

From there, we step into the elegant Browns Covent Garden, a converted building that was once the Westminster County Courts. How about some British classics with a twist, paired with their signature cocktails? Sounds like a perfect way to mix history with gastronomy, doesn't it?


4. The Crown & Two Chairmen, London

Our next stop, The Crown & Two Chairmen, is a Soho institution loved for its traditional pub fare and lively atmosphere. Can you taste the rich flavour of their ale, hear the friendly banter, and feel the pulse of London's nightlife?


5. The Argyll Arms, London

We then head over to The Argyll Arms, a historic pub that's been serving pints since 18684. With its unique ‘snob screens’ and an array of real ales, it offers an authentic slice of London's past. Isn't it amazing to think of all the stories this place could tell?

6. The Dog and Duck, London

Next up is The Dog and Duck, a Grade II listed pub that's as charming as its name. Famous for its Victorian decor and literary connections (George Orwell was a regular!), this pub is sure to inspire some great conversations over pints.


7. The Phoenix, Cavendish Square, London

Last, but certainly not least, we arrive at The Phoenix. Located in a beautiful Georgian building on Cavendish Square, The Phoenix offers a fusion of old and new, from its traditional architecture to its modern British menu. Isn't it the perfect ending to our royal pub crawl?
