Mr Foggs Tavern
58 St Martin's Ln, London
True beauty is what’s on the inside, but at Mr Foggs Tavern, it’s also very much about what’s on the outside too! With colourful blooms spilling from the rooftop, and a whimsical flower arch entrance, the eye-catching exterior of this quaint little corner tavern is unmissable on a trip to London. The beauty doesn’t stop there though, with eclectic art and memorabilia covering the walls and ceilings, it’s a one-stop-shop for honest British pub grub, delicious tipples and an unprecedented number of snaps for the ‘gram.
The Churchill Arms
119 Kensington Church St, Kensington
Covered in over 180 flower pots, hanging baskets and planter boxes, the flower game is seriously strong at this Kensington watering hole. Almost completely hidden by colourful blooms in spring, the stunning floral facade has become a social media sensation. As well as its iconic Insta-worthy exterior, the interior is also a treasure trove of bric-a-brac, paintings, banners and historical memorabilia, making it a top spot for a snap and a beer or two!
147 St John's Hill, London
Refurbed in 2017 by award-winning design company, Kai Interiors, this beloved Victorian bar has gone from shabby chic to super stylish. The sleek facade opens up to a cosy bar area, small outdoor courtyard and an airy conservatory boasting vintage artifacts, bold wallpaper and colourful furnishings. Whether you’re feasting in the light-filled dining area, enjoying a drink in the courtyard or pulling up a stool at the bar, this hidden gem raises the pub-style stakes in a big way.
174 Queen Victoria St, London
Adorned in mosaics, ornate copper detailing and Art Nouveau architecture, this historic pub is a visual masterpiece, inside and out! Built in 1875 as a Dominican monastery, the unique wedge-shaped building is bursting at the seams with history, personality and charm. From the opulent dining area which features dark wood, marble and grand art pieces, to the spacious (and somewhat rare!) outdoor area, which boasts ornamental balconies, decorative detailing and a large Blackfriar statue, no matter where you turn, it’s a treat for the eyes. Don’t miss your chance to glimpse inside this living museum for the mere price of a pint!
The Cross Keys
31 Endell St, London
If you think the grand marble columns and foliage-covered facade of this cosy little London pub are impressive, just wait until you step foot inside! Ornate doesn’t even begin to cover the vast collection of mirrors, pictures, brass instruments and artifacts that fill the space, and if that’s not impressive enough, the Beatles memorabilia and the napkin signed by Elvis Presley are sure to do the trick. From the front shrubbery to the vast cornucopia of bits and bobs, and lets not forget the specialty Ales on tap, this classic Covent Garden pub is as pleasing on the eyes as it is on the taste buds!
