Streets of London

Wikipedia gives us the quick following overview of the area: “ Regent Street is a major shopping street in the West End of London. It is named after George, the Prince Regent and was laid out under the direction of the architect John Nash and James Burton. It runs from Waterloo Place in St James’s at the southern end, through Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus, to All Souls Church. From there Langham Place and Portland Place continue the route to Regent’s Park. “

Pubs in the area

As Londoners at Cozee, we cherish our weekly visits to the local pub. Why not embrace the same in your new living space? We’ve diligently tested and reviewed all the pubs in Regent Street – well, not literally, but we wish we had! Here’s our list of the finest pubs in Regent Street.

Pub name Name Address Description
Ain’t Nothin’ But… 20 Kingly Street London W1B 5PZ Small blues bar with seating towards the rear and a small stage where up and coming blues bands play. Gigs are on every day. The walls are decorated with blues memorabilia – such as photographers of blues musicians, record covers, and posters of blues concerts. Wednesday to Saturday admission charges may apply. Can be very busy when bands are playing, and entrance is restricted by fire regulations. The venue does not take bookings. Real ale is from the Adnams range and there may be more on offer than the two indicated here.
Blue Posts 18 Kingly Street London W1B 5QE Cosy corner pub with attractive windows and panelling within. Licensed as the Two Blue Posts in 1728, the present pub was built in 1892 at a cost of £4,000. The blue posts were the boundary-markers of Soho Fields, the sixteenth century royal hunting grounds. Or alternatively, the name is thought to refer to the blue bollards that once marked the “taxi-ranks” of sedan chairs, one of which is illustrated on the pub sign.
Clachan 34 Kingly Street London W1B 5QH First licensed in 1750, this grade II listed pub was rebuilt in 1898 and still retains many original fittings such as engraved glasswork, mirrors, servery mahogany, and ceiling Lincrusta panels. Called the Bricklayers Arms until 1887 and once owned by the family-run Liberty department store which had plans to use it as a storehouse but then sold it off. The ground floor bar is split level with a further room upstairs doubling as a restaurant and function room. Note the unusual raised snug at the rear with skylight and rails. Clachan is a Scottish word for hamlet but it is not known what the connection was; mosaics at the entrances spell out the pub name.
Glassblower 42 Glasshouse Street London W1B 5JY Once a workhouse, this pub consists of a wedge-shaped room with the bar against the far wall. There is a large lantern hanging from the centre of the beamed ceiling, and high tables and chairs. The first floor dining area, with its own bar, can be hired for functions. The large food menu includes kids menus, Sunday roasts, veggie options, sandwiches and toasties. Post-Covid the ale handpumps have reduced to two.
Leicester Arms 44 Glasshouse Street London W1B 5DP Single lounge bar with a first floor restaurant used as a function room in the evenings; handy for shopping in nearby Regent Street. First licensed in 1725 as the Harp, it was rebuilt in 1892 at a cost of £5,572. It later became the Harp & Crown and the Cambrian Stores until 1927, when the name was transferred from the Leicester Lounge in New Coventry Street. Wide food menu including Sunday roasts and sharing platters.
Wigmore 15 Langham Place London W1B 3DE Formerly a bank, now part of – but separate from – the 5-star Langham Hotel. Very up-market and well-staffed, and with a 12 1/2% discretionary service charge.
