London coronavirus: 6 quirky pubs to visit once this has all blown over

Let’s face it, a lot of us miss heading down to the local with our pals for a few drinks and a catch up.

What used to seem like a very average way to spend an evening, now feels like a distant memory – and we’ve only been under tough new lockdown measures for a few days.

But there will come a time when we enter through those doors again. When we will smell the freshly brewed ales, rejoice in not coming last at the Monday night quiz and feel the hot rays hitting down on us in a busy beer garden.

When we will enter our favourite London pubs once again.

And while we may not be able to tell you exactly when that time will be, we can tell you a few of the quirkiest breweries to head to once this all blows over.

So here it is, a toast to the future!

1. The Churchill Arms, Kensington

The pub was built in 1750 and is one of London's most recognisable pubs

You can’t miss this beautiful, blooming pub while strolling through Notting Hill. Once you’ve finished admiring the outside, head in for a delicious drink and some even tastier Thai food.

2. The Faltering Fullback, Finsbury Park

This well loved Irish pub has everything you need. Again great Thai food, and decent space to watch sports, but the wow factor really begins when you step outside into what many would consider the London’s most stunning beer garden.

Seriously, it’s amazing.

3. Blue Anchor, Hammersmith

This 18th-century inn boasts unbeatable views on the Thames, great for celebrating a renunion with friends.

4. Crooked Billet, Wimbledon

Traditional pub fare aplenty at Crooked Billet

Take your drink outside and enjoy your freedom while basking in the sun on Wimbledon Common.
It goes hand in hand with the pub next door. Appropriately called, Hand In Hand.

5. The Pineapple, Kentish Town

More Thai food, a brilliant Monday night quiz, and a cosy outdoor area.

Don’t forget to say hello to their furry feline friend Spongebob, aptly named because he lives in The Pineapple.

6. The Ship, Monument

Just a minute walk from Monument station, you’ll find this friendly pub tucked away in Talbot Court.

Perfect for post-work drinks with the colleagues you’re happy to see again.

Also perfect for hiding away from the ones you aren’t.
