Types of pub






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.

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.

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 – 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.   […]

Steam Wine Bar

Aldgate E1 and City EC3

Not the sort of place you may expect to find darts, but a perfectly reasonably venue for a pre-booked throw, especially if you drink wine. Note that the venue is regularly closed in the evening for private events – including one, according to the 100 Not Out Honours Board by the stairs, featuring Eric Bristow, […]

Wood Street Bar

City EC2 EC4

It is most unlikely and unexpected in this wine-bary-restaurant nestled into the Barbican concrete jungle – but downstairs is a games room with a dedicated darts area. It being the Barbican, the floor seems to be made of concrete, so will ruin a few points, and the board in 2024 looked a little lonely. But […]


London Bridge and Borough SE1

With two boards in a dedicated arch this should be such a fine place to play darts, but the board are rubbish and they have been for some time. The peculiar name stems from when the staff from the Wheatsheaf in Borough Market moved here in 2009 when that pub was closed due to very […]

Old China Hand

Clerkenwell and Farringdon EC1

This fine, independent pub-cum-bar reopened in February 2023 after a nearly 3-year Covid-hiatus. There are two boards at the back of pub which can be reserved, and where you really ought to go any play. If you don’t play darts, you should go here anyway. This is one of the few family owned freehouses in […]
