Pretend you’re in ‘Downton Abbey’ with a visit to the bar of superlative London hotel The Goring. A regal fireplace, deep red walls and wingback chairs set the scene for some very fine imbibing. Go regal with a 'Thank you your Majesty', a cocktail which pays tribute to the King and is made with rose petal liqueur, mandarin, elderflower and fizz.

This Victoria wine bar offers reliable quaffing, with wines grouped by depth of flavour rather than by region. There's a bunch of these 'urban wineries' across the capital now, and this is one of the biggest. Order using the QR code on your table. Grape stuff.

Market Hall Victoria

  • Victoria
  • price 1 of 4

A food hall inside a handsome old building, Market Hall Victoria is not just in Victoria, but is smack-bang opposite the station with a big old bar and an all-important roof terrace. Regular live music makes this one of the more rowdy drinking locations in the area.

A massive great big sports bar, Greenwood is your station-side spot to watch all the big games, from footie to rugby, with some NFL, tennis, basketball, golf, boxing and F1 thrown in for good measure.

Transport yourself to bonnie Scotland without leaving the Smoke. There’s tartan everywhere, and although many come to Boisdale for a slap-up Scotch supper, the whisky bar is William Wallace levels of heroic. Sample blends from the Highlands, the Lowlands and the bits in between.

Munich Cricket Club
  • 3 out of 5 stars
  • Bars and pubs
  • Craft beer pubs
  • Westminster
  • price 2 of 4

Victoria or Bavaria? It’s a question you’ll find yourself asking at oddly named Munich Cricket Club, a beer hall modelled on those straight out of Germany. Order two-pint steins to wash down schnitzel or a sausage platter. If oompah’s your thing (and it is, of course) head here on Thursdays and Saturdays.
