Visited the Skinners Arms twice in April following business meetings, really friendly and attentive bar staff and the pub has plenty of room for seating. There is a good selection of draught beers.

Went here one evening on recent trip to London. Food was very good and friendly staff. The place was busy however food came quickly and was well prepared. Seemed to be a popular place for eating and socializing. Would recommend.

Went here on a weeknight and were able to get a table for two. The food was simple but good and the guys behind the bar were friendly. Would recommend for a casual night out.

leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
