Best pubs in London

We’re building a new website of the best pubs in London (mostly as voted for by Londonist readers). We still have a few areas to explore, but do take a look through the guide so far, and let us know about any scandalous omissions. New additions this week are: The Bull in Spitalfields and The Crown in Greenwich. Plus, find out which pubs in Victoria Park were selected by Londonist readers for entry into the database.

Top reviews

  • Part anthem for doomed youth, part ribald comedy: My Night With Reg at Donmar Warehouse
  • Latest V&A display, Rapid Response Collecting, exhibits items that have recently made the news
  • What does the Science Museum throw out? New exhibition shows us its rubbish
  • The Immortal Hour at Finborough Theatre is intimate, but perhaps not best suited to beginners
  • The art and science of Captain Cook’s explorations at the Queen’s House, Royal Museums Greenwich
  • Intimate action at OperaUpClose’s La Traviata at Soho Theatre
  • Dogfight at Southwark Playhouse is weird, ugly, corny, and all the better for it
