Named after the nearby Victoria Street, the main line station is a terminus of the Brighton Main Line to Gatwick Airport and Brighton and the Chatham Main Line to Ramsgate and Dover via Chatham. From the main lines, trains can connect to the Catford Loop Line, the Dartford Loop Line, and the Oxted line to East Grinstead and Uckfield.

Pub name Name Address Description
Barley Mow 104 Horseferry Road London SW1P 2EE Rebuilt in 1930, this pub is a spacious single bar with raised seating areas either end, a small piano, some old prints and a full restaurant and bar (with Harvey’s and Spitfire) upstairs, available for parties etc., evenings and weekends. It’s popular with both locals and workers from the many businesses and government departments in the area. All major sports including football, especially Chelsea matches, are on the big screens. Children are welcome until 7pm. NB there have been reports (mid-2022) that a service charge is automatically added to the bill even when ordering at the bar; you are free to ask to have this removed.
Bay & Bracket 17-19 Artillery Row London SW1P 1RH Large, open plan, ground floor pub. Modern in decor with multiple tables for eating. Photos and prints of local scenes adorn the walls. Main clientele of passing tourists and local office workers. Several sports TVs. Various craft keg beers are available as well as the cask ales, plus boxed ciders.
Grafton Arms 2 Strutton Ground London SW1P 2HP This is a welcoming street-market sports pub, offering a value-for-money menu. Built as the Kings Arms in 1850, it was owned for many years by the Grafton family. Jimmy Grafton wrote Goon Show scripts upstairs for the BBC with Michael Bentine and Spike Milligan, who once served behind the bar. The Goons are commemorated by the plaque outside the pub (see our photo) plus various photos and a cartoon mural inside the pub.
Greencoat Boy 2 Greencoat Place London SW1P 1PJ Rebuilt in 1881, this corner pub commemorates the Green Coat Hospital for the relief of fatherless children established in 1633 by Charles I. Below the warm decor of the ground floor bar is a cellar bar, usually closed but available for functions. The managers were strangely unwilling to regale the guide surveyors with any attractive features to report besides the usual TV sports. The licence permits sale of alcohol from opening time, but the pub’s website suggests that such service starts at 11am every day.
Loose Box 51 Horseferry Road London SW1P 2AA This is a modern British pub with attractive lunch, dinner and Sunday roast menus, a large wine selection and local real ales at restaurant prices. The large bar, with a separate, raised dining area, offers a contrast to the more traditional appeal of the White Horse & Bower across the road.
Marquis of Granby 41 Romney Street London SW1P 3RF An historic pub rebuilt in 1933/4, frequented by politicians, civil servants, media folk and concert goers from nearby St John’s, Smith Square. There is a division bell for the politicians! Wood panelling, brass rails, partitioned window seating and chandeliers characterise the traditional downstairs bar. The upstairs dining room has the three regular beers. Food is served until 10pm. In addition to the interesting main menu there is a speciality pie menu and an afternoon tea menu. Children are welcome upstairs 12-3 and 5-9; downstairs 3-5. The latest report from a member indicates that a post-pandemic temporary reduction of ale range has ceased and that the pub is back up to full range of six ales.
Morpeth Arms 58 Millbank London SW1P 4RW This popular corner pub, dating from 1846 and extended in 1890, faces the river near Vauxhall Bridge and is close to the Tate Britain gallery. It has been described as a decent, comfortable pub and one of the best in Pimlico. Fine glasswork and some attractive slender scroll-topped columns together distinguish the main bar, which is carpeted and furnished with a mixture of high tables with stools and dining tables and chairs. There is a CCTV link to the ghost-inhabited former prison transfer cells in the cellar to demand one’s constant attention for fear of missing an appearance! To the rear, a single high table occupies the snug, whilst upstairs, the appropriately fitted-out Spying Room, with its view of the MI6 Building across the river, is quiet and comfortable. Note the majestic Bass mirror. Outside, at both front and side, are railed-in seating areas. Blankets and hot-water bottles are available in cold weather. Three or more ales from Young’s are supplemented by one or two others predominantly from local breweries. A brunch menu is offered until 12 noon, Monday to Saturday (and hopefully soon also on Sundays), with a full menu thereafter.
Royal Oak 2 Regency Street London SW1P 4BZ This busy corner pub can be packed with office workers in the early evening. With windows on three sides there is not much room for pictures, but two good marine paintings and several interesting prints adorn the remaining wall, and the rear wall has flyers from band performances over the last several decades. Established in 1831 and rebuilt in 1872, the pub was saved from demolition following a campaign by local people, with the help of CAMRA. At date of this entry in mid-2022 the ale range had been reduced to one active pump. Further updates welcome.
Speaker 46 Great Peter Street London SW1P 2HA Following a much-needed refurb in 2018, which thankfully both preserved the character and enhanced the decor, this pub reopened under Bermondsey Pub Co (now Stonegate) management. Note the charming explanatory wall plaques on the outside of the pub.
Westminster Arms 9-10 Storey’s Gate London SW1P 3AT A small, convivial, wood panelled pub close to Westminster Abbey, the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Methodist Central Hall, St James’s Park, and the Houses of Parliament. The pub was rebuilt in 1913 and is now one of a small number of central pubs still equipped with a Commons division bell. It’s a frequent hang out for lobbyists, policy wonks, even the odd politician being treated (shurely shome mishtake?). But apart from the suits, it has been described as “there’s some magic in the air too, as if a whiff of Soho found its way to SW1”.
White Horse & Bower 86 Horseferry Road London SW1P 2EE Originally built c1813 and called the White Horse until 1832 (it was a watering-hole for horses). Rebuilt in the 1894 by the New Westminster brewery, whose premises were situated a short distance away in Earl Street. Now a welcoming single-bar pub, with a fine, long wooden bar and bar back. Photographs of local scenes adorn the walls. Watch out for two ‘White Horse & Bower’ mirrors and the old Shepherd Neame Pale Ale brewery sign. Four handpumps, but only one real ale has been reported post-pandemic. Further updates welcome. Planning app 21/01669/FULL “Erection of infill extension at first to third floors on Monck Street frontage associated with use of upper floors as five residential units (1x 3 bedroom unit, 4 x 1 bedroom units)” was approved by Westminster Council 9 Nov. 2021.
Windsor Castle 23 Francis Street London SW1P 1DN The nearest pub to Westminster Cathedral, popular with locals and business people. It had been the Cardinal for many years, commemorating Westminster’s nineteenth century Cardinal Manning, before Sam Smiths controversially gave this pub back its original name in 2011. Very tastefully refurbished by SS, it has several separate impressively screened drinking areas, a comfortable lounge to the rear and an attractive upstairs room hireable out for functions. Two fine lanterns enhance the entrances.
