The Porterhouse is dreadful.
Coach & Horses for the best Guinness.
Cross Keys for a session. Bring a torch if you want to read the paper. Steep stairs to the jacks.
Philomenas for a late one. And maybe an emergency breakfast as it opens early.

Tomo, did you find Sheephaven Bay the other day?

Still there. Ecco Pizza next door - perfect too.

I like Waxys in Leicester square..

How about the Canadian bar, opposite the Porterhouse?

Admittedly not in the immediate vicinity, but Byron burger on Beak Street, the Red Lion on Kingly Street and the Argyll at Oxford circus are golders tips

I have some very sad news... Coach and Horses shut 2 weeks ago.

I forgot about Philomenas, but can be a bit touristy.

I know where it is but not had the chance to visit yet, but think I may try for lunch today for the Cricket.

Eh? Jimmy Ryan's pub? Say it isn't so. The price they've been charging for Guinness over the years should have built up a huge nest egg. Despite the fact that anymore than 15 people in the pub made it cramped.

It used to be good and packed out - was in there on Friday, and there were about 15 people in there at about 12:30 -1am.

There was a time, probably about 8 years ago perhaps, when it was more of a catwalk behind the jump rather than barmaids. Usually I fall in love with the barstaff over the course of an evening, but this was the thunderbolt the moment I walked in.
They've yet to crack pouring a good Guinness in there though.

It can also be full of Freemasons at times.

Seven dials end rather than the Strand or Leicester square end. Plenty of stuff there.

Fortunately little changed since Fullers bought it a few years ago. Pints for around 4 (?) and sausage sandwiches available.

Wait till you go to the Freemasons arm one lunch time to watch the cricket. We were purposefully ignored while serving people 2 behind us at the bar when a Freemason event was going on!!

Despite making grub for them upstairs in the function room once a week so they could all clap their hands together, or sacrifice virgins or whatever it is they do in some sort of privacy, the Newton Arms (rip) used to go the other way & seek out normal punters to serve before the masonic hordes.
