This is lovely, friendly traditional Young's pub. It can get busy but the upstairs room usually has space. There's a small yard out back. I've eaten here about 10 times but it's often quite disappointing. Recently I've had fish and chips where the texture of...More

This was terrible. I like the pub and live nearby and often visit. For over £20 I got a piece of hake not much larger than my thumb. The rest of the plate was filled up with potatoes. It was inedible. I will go again...More

a good old fashioned pub festooned with plenty of character, an interesting clientele mix, good selection of beers and oodles of atmosphere. Traditional décor, unspoilt by trends or fashion. Order a pint of Youngs Special and I defy the first one to last more than...More

We had the best pub lunch at The Lamb. Draught beer selection was excellent, sandwiches of British ham, cheese and chutney were delicious, and the home-made vegetable crisps were a real treat. This pub is not to be missed! It's a traditional old pub, beautiful...More

There's nothing gastropub about the Lamb. It's a good old fashioned boozer, with a historic twist. The walls are covered with photographs of the leading artists of the Music Hall Era in late Victorian times in the UK. My grandmother's picture is there, but it...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
