Central London pubs with dart boards

Walrus and The Carpenter

Aldgate E1 and City EC3

A separate downstairs bar contains a very welcoming darts board, albeit surrounded by tables. Caters for league teams in 2024, and generally very welcoming. As the bar is only open some of the time, however, there are limited times when the board is available.

The Gladstone Arms

London Bridge and Borough SE1

A fantastic pub where darts is a low priority, but that shouldn’t stop you going there. The function room upstairs has a (fairly tatty on 2024 visit) board, but there are many better reasons to visit the Glad.

White Horse

Soho and around W1

Surely the first ever wine-led pub which has a dart board, downstairs (there’s draught beer too). I wouldn’t expect to bump into someone you know on the oche, but I’ve had a friendly welcome and if you are into incongruous arrow-throwing this surely tops the pile.

Spots & Stripes

Waterloo SE1

Fundamentally this is a pool hall, and a very welcome one at that, but there is a row of dart boards nestled at the rear, including two tucked around the corner, all with a somewhat low ceiling. There has also been sightings of the Prodigy Steel Tip dart board here, which will excite the dart […]

Small Beer Taproom

London Bridge and Borough SE1

Now open with a dart board … check opening times before visiting, but in late 2022 it was open Wednesday to Sunday, including Wednesday to Saturday nights. Not yet visited.

Adam & Eve

Victoria and Pimlico SW1

The board is tucked in an alcove on the right hand side of the bar, visible from the road, which is lucky, as I would never have found it otherwise. It looks a nice enough place to throw, and, if the King ever wants to follow in the footsteps of his Nan and Gramps (c.1937) […]

Sir Sydney Smith

Aldgate E1 and City EC3

If you like a pub with a dart board and a lot of bricks this is for you. There is a large and good quality dedicated darts area, it’s a friendly boozer, and the website even tells you when there are matches on – https://www.sirsydneysmith.co.uk/darts. All in all this has become one of the best […]

Moretown Belle

Aldgate E1 and City EC3

In one of London’s new-but-old quarters (Moretown, anyone?), sits London’s floweriest dart boards. The dedicated darts area holds three boards, and this remains one of the better new free darts venue in London in recent years, despite the fact that I had never seen anyone throw darts here, until I played a game in May […]

Sports Bar and Grill

Clerkenwell and Farringdon EC1

Clinging to its place in this guide, there are two digital boards in a dedicated area at the back of the pub. I still can’t get over quite how clever this stuff is, but it isn’t really darts, and, judging by my 2024 visit, you are not going to have a quiet throw here.   […]

Williams Ale and Cider House

Aldgate E1 and City EC3

Three boards situated next to each other at the back of the pub, and consistently helpful staff, make this a good place to throw some darts – although it can get very loud and busy, particularly in the early evening. Also, the oche is a bit wonky. Which can be a very useful excuse for […]

Dog and Truck

Aldgate E1 and City EC3

The board is in the conservatory, which sounds a bit posh, but isn’t. It’s definitely not a darts pub, and tables are in the way of the board most of the time, but the staff on 2022 visit were helpful and ready to move the furniture. Feels like a nice place to while some time […]

Old Tea Warehouse

Aldgate E1 and City EC3

Home to Darts Club Aldgate – a room downstairs in this intriguing bar/pub with three fabulous oches and self-scoring boards. I kid you not!! [Insert clever science explanation]. A quieter and less fashionable version of Flight Club, with cheaper drinks. What’s the catch, I hear you cry? Well, £20 an hour an oche, plus the […]
