London’s cultural scene is as changeable as its weather and keeping up with the changes can be tricky business. But no matter what the weather, you can always find a good pub for a good pint in London. Here are a few of my favorites.
The Camden Town Brewery makes one of the best local brews in the city. Its specialty beers include the crisp and lemony Camden Hells Lager, the dry, fruity Camden Pale, the Camden Ink which has a blend of coffee and chocolate, and the floral and lemony Gentleman’s Wit – all which are available year-round. As for seasonal beers, their menu includes the Strawberry Hells Forever, with summer-ripened British strawberries, the fruity and nutty Oktoberfest, and the cognac, tequila, and bourbon barrel-aged Beer 2016. On certain days, food trucks are invited to provide guests with a taste of the wonderful street food the city has to offer.
Charles Lamb pub is a delightful hidden gem, tucked behind rows of Regency terraced houses just behind Angel Station. It’s position off of the main street manages to control the crowds, however, leaving the bar bustling yet accessible. With elegant, minimal decor, a sunlit interior that brightens up the afternoon atmosphere, and a selection of delectable bar snacks, it’s easy to see why this hidden spot is a neighborhood favorite. A French wine list available in glasses and carafes completes the selection at this wonderful spot.
