Dog & Duck
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This venerable boozer is now owned by the Nicholson’s chain, and some won’t appreciate the branded menus – they’re reminiscent of a theme pub rather than a Soho one-off of great antiquity. But ignore them and look around you, at the lovely tiled walls, big mirrors, original light fixtures and well-seasoned wood.
The D&D remains incredibly popular, though weekday afternoons are relatively leisurely for a quiet pint chosen from a small, changing list of real ales. At night: you’ll be lucky to get a seat and even luckier to get one at the prized copper-topped tables at the back. In any weather more clement than a typhoon, the crowd spills out on to the pavement. They love the place, and so do we.
