While we have our favourite pubs, it seems a shame not to explore the vast wealth of boozers in this great city. We’ve hit a couple of gems recently, so we’ve decided that every day this week we’re going to go into a new pub and write about it. Maybe two, if the first one’s rubbish.
Today we’re featuring the Old Coffee House, Beak Street, Soho. This place screams “old-fashioned boozer” at you, with walls covered in brewery livery and various East London references (including letters from David Beckham as a Manchester United trainee… fake or real, who knows?).
Excitingly, they had Brodie’s IPA, brewed by our local microbrewery. Even better, it was in fabulously crisp condition. Friendly staff, nice mixed crowd. Busy, but you could squeeze onto a table. A hit.
