From the trendy to the traditional, Fulham has a wide range of pubs and bars. Beer lovers will enjoy the fine selection of ales available at the White Horse, while Vagabond Wines will entertain vino drinkers for hours with a choice of over 100 bottles. Take a look at the bars and pubs in Fulham that Time Out recommends below...
Despite a refurb in November 2012, this renowned hostelry can still feel like something from the days of the Raj. The Victorian ceilings are airily high, and wide windows let plenty of light into the bar.
Dedicated to the democratisation of champagne (although the residents of Parsons Green hardly qualify as the great unwashed), Amuse Bouche has hit on a winning formula: a list of 40 or so champagnes – including at least eight available by the glass – that are served in relaxed, modern surroundings.
The Malt House is in a spruced-up, handsome old pub and serves British-style cooking of the highest standard.
Vagabond’s a smart-looking place, run by keen, understated, well-informed staff. The 100 or so wines are grouped by style, such as ‘spicy’ or ‘elegant’ (reds), ‘crisp’ or ‘subtle’ (whites).
Aragon House is far more discreet than the better-known White Horse on the opposite side of the Green. Only a small brass plaque indicates anything unusual might lurk behind the plain black front door.
Pretty much as close as the Young’s chain gets to a bar rather than a pub, this huge place by Stamford Bridge is quite singular given the traditional bent of its ownership. First-time visitors will discern little from its bland, black frontage facing a church.
This corner pub was given a facelift by the new owners at the end of 2007. It’s now light-filled, with cream-coloured walls, old oak floorboards, candles on the tables and blackboard menus. The staff are enthusiastic and clearly committed to the place, whether they’re pouring you a pint of real ale (from the Hook Norton brewery perhaps) or dishing up the British Isles menu, which has a recognisably Irish accent.

See the Mayfair guide Mayfair Bars Coburg Bar The Connaught has always had the most country house-like feeling of London’s great hotels, and the effect reaches perfection in the effortlessly beautiful Coburg. The Connaught Bar Among the villas and mansions in the heart of Mayfair is one of the city’s best hotels – The Connaught is luxury on a different level and its two bars are both unsurprisingly stunning. Library Across the road from Hyde Park and carefully muffled against the noise of Hyde Park Corner sits the Lanesborough, a former hospital that now offers a rather more luxurious kind of sleepover. Claridge's Bar Claridge’s remains one of London’s best hotels. The downside: everyone knows it, and its beautiful bar (designed by David Collins) can be a little oversubscribed.

Let us know in the comments below French House An evergreen haunt of Soho barflies, the French House should have ‘La Marseillaise’ playing as you walk in. Beer (house lager) is sold in halves; eau de vie comes in strawberry, pear and plum varieties; the champers is Canard Duchêne and Pol Roger; and there’s Breton cider and Ricard behind the bar. The 30-strong (16 by the glass) wine list is dominated by vins français, Pouilly-Fuissé Monternot 2007, Brouilly 2009 and more affordable St Julien d’Aille de Provence included. This is no recent Gallic gimmick: frequented by Soho’s criminal and cultural underworld after the war, this was also where Charles de Gaulle ran his London base in the Vichy era, hence the photo; more recent guests (Suggs, Francis Bacon) receive more wall space. Argyll Arms Robert Sawyer created this ornate Victorian pub in the dying days of the 19th century, and he’d still be proud of his Grade II-listed, Nicholson’s-run monument to mahogany and etched glass by one of the West End’s busiest pedestrian intersections. Within, the unhurried sipping and supping of quality ales might recall a quiet rural pub but for the rapid turnover of the inter
