The most striking thing about The Duke is it's unspoilt 1930's interior. Unlike the vast majority of pubs in London it hasn't been heavily modernised and thus retains bags of character. This was my first visit for more than 15 years and the place seemed...More

Super-cute little corner pub with tons of atmosphere and all its original 1930s fixtures and fittings still intact. Food is pretty average but the portions are generous and prices are fair. And I love the dining room with its cosy wooden booths and an open...More

Called in for lunch. We have lived quite close nearby for over four years but only just noticed it. Lovely old fashioned pub with music to suit. It was quiet today (Saturday lunch), so really tranquil for central London. And not at all pretentious which...More

I've walked from Russell Square tube to the Eastman Dental Hospital many, many times but today was the first time I've noticed a sign at the entrance to Doughty Mews advertising the presence of a pub! It proudly states "Built 1938" and, after pushing open...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
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
museums, including the must-see British Museum.

I guess it would be fairly easy to get a wheelchair in the main door. As someone else has pointed out, they are double doors. And the staff are really great and helpful. I am sure it will be fine. And you'll love the beer... More
