Situated just a few steps away from Bond Street station, The Running Horse is a venerable pub that first opened its doors in 1738, and the wood panelling, attractive fireplace and lived-in furniture certainly give it the feel of a well-established boozer. But the owners have added some chic modern touches, updating the decor with a new lick of paint and adding some snazzy lighting, all of which combines to make this pub a lovely place to empty a couple of glasses.
Four pumps and a handful of taps offer a decent selection of beers, including an Adnams lager and a couple of Meantime brews. There's also a tempting food menu if you're hungry, but be warned: at £6 a pint, The Running Horse might not be your best bet if you're tight of fist and faint of heart. That said, for those traipsing along Oxford Street and struck with a sudden need for a refreshing pick-me-up, this place couldn't be any better suited, and it's ideal if you work centrally and need an after-work hangout – especially if your boss is paying.
