This busy bears’ pub has been around forever, and attracts a loyal crowd of stocky, hairy, beardy men who like a pint. The aesthetic is traditional and cosy: you could be in a country pub, except it’s crammed with gay men. Now that bears have gone more mainstream, the place is busier than ever. Some nights they really pack them in. There’s a lot less attitude than you’ll find in many Soho venues, though it helps if you have a beard.
