45 Rupert Street, London, W1D 7PB
This pub crawl takes us to an area just to the north of Piccadilly Circus, starting at The White Horse, 45 Rupert Street, W1D 7PB – https://whatpub.com/pubs/WLD/16488/white-horse-london – a Sam Smith’s pub with the usual blend of eccentricity and reasonable prices. The Old Brewery Bitter is apparently dispensed from wooden casks.
The White Horse is close to Piccadilly Circus underground station – take Exit 1 for Regent Street (East Side), turn right and then, after about 50 yards, turn left into Shaftesbury Avenue. Walk up Shaftesbury Avenue for about 200 yards until you come to the Gielgud Theatre on your left. Turn left into Rupert Street and you’ll find the pub straight ahead of you.
The plan is to move on to The Lyric, 37 Great Windmill Street, W1D 7LU – http://www.lyricsoho.co.uk – at around 8.45 and then The Queen’s Head, 15 Denman Street, W1D 7HN – http://www.queensheadpiccadilly.com – at around 10.00. The Lyric is a locals type of pub – now few and far between in Central London – and The Queen’s Head is a free house dating back to 1736.
