You'll find this traditional little pub in the backstreets of Fitzrovia, tucked away on Rathbone Place. Apparently it was Dylan Thomas' favourite drinking spot, back in the day. It's got a dinky exterior but inside it extends over two floors, with upstairs given over to regular comedy line ups - the improv nights are popular.

The drinks list is typical pub fare, with what looks like a decent range of ale on draught. The food menu follows suit, mostly comprising traditional pub grub. And if it's a sunny day? There's a few tables outside for pavement drinking.

The Wheatsheaf says
A traditional, historic London pub where in days gone by you would have encountered the Bohemian set and had a drink with George Orwell and Dylan Thomas.

Lunch served in our newly redecorated first-floor dinning room. With waiter service.

We serve award-winning cask-conditioned ales, craft beer, lager, wines, premium spirits and home-cooked food.

Comedy upstairs at The Wheatsheaf:

- Second Tuesday, Laugh a Minute.
- Third Tuesday, Lady Prov.

Watch the Six Nations Rugby with us.

Minutes from the bustle of Oxford Street, and close to Tottenham Court Road and the Dominion Theatre.

A proper London Pub, with proper beer and a very good Pie and Mash. No branding no themes just a good pub.
