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.

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. Do visit Spots and Stripes. And if you are new to the venue, and it is dark, don’t […]

Temple Brewhouse

Covent Garden and WC2

Two ‘smart’ boards are tucked away on the right once you get to the bottom of the stairs.This is probably my favourite of the dartatainment venues, but the sciency-stuff means that you can’t use your own darts, so it is only really in this guide because: i. The old version of this pub had a […]

Aldgate E1 and City EC3

It’s hard to tell is this is a pub or a bar, but, frankly, who gives a toss as it has three dart boards upstairs, although one is a little awkward and surround-less – probably used as a practice board when teams play here.

Rileys Victoria

The two traditional boards means that this remains one of the best places in central London for a serious game of darts in a quality set up – for a […]


London Bridge and Borough SE1

My all round favourite central London pub with a dart board (as opposed to a pub which is primarily about darts). The board is on a dedicated raised oche in the corner, and it is used a lot, including by a great bunch of locals who ensure a new board arrives on a regular basis. […]

Escape Sports Bar

Camden NW1

If your first reaction on entering this sports-bar-cum-estate-pub is to want to escape it, note the dedicated oche up the stairs on the right hand side of the bar. Those that play here regularly give positive reviews. On my 2022 visit someone drew up in a car with tinted windows and proceeded to promise the […]
