Time Out says

A famous Soho gay bar on Old Compton Street, operating continuously since the early 19th century. There's much more to the Admiral Duncan's history than the well-documented tragedy of 1999 - it once housed a wooden-legged ex-sailor sent to Australia for throwing stones at King William IV, for example. It takes its name from the chap who defeated the Dutch at the Battle of Camperdown.

Today it remains a friendly Soho stalwart not afraid of getting a little raucous on occasion. Expect a mixed crowd drinking continental beers, pints of Guinness and wines from a short list. Entertainment comes from a jukebox filled with hits from the 80s and 90s, as well as cabaret and drag acts at the weekends. There's a dancefloor too, should the temptation take you.
