Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Look around this traditional boozer, displaying heraldic shields, royals through the ages in playing-card form, and pictures of the England touring cricket team to Australia in 1978-79, and you’d be hard pushed to guess that this was where Bob Dylan made one of his first London appearances.

It still has a monthly folk night but most come to this dark, expansive saloon for the range of beers, which includes St Austell Tribute, Sharp’s Doom Bar, Adnam’s and San Miguel. Whiskies – Macallan 10, Laphroaig and Glenmorangie all by the optic – are another speciality. Sport broadcasts from a TV on the back wall – it’s not a bad place to watch the Saturday results unfold in peace and quiet.

Food includes scampi and chips, and steak-and-kidney pudding, and sales are rung up on an old copper cash register.
