Griffin Belle

Two boards in a function room upstairs with flowers on the ceiling. Shiny and new. If I’m being picky, which I will be if I miss double 20 a lot, the lights look a little low.

Adam & Eve

The board is tucked in an alcove on the right hand side of the bar, visible from the road, which is lucky, as I’m sure there didn’t used to be a board here, so I wouldn’t have noticed it otherwise. It looks a nice enough place to throw, and, if the Queen ever wants to follow in the footsteps of …

Grosvenor

A board in the left hand bar next to a pool table, and another in the area at the back right, make this the bet in the area if you want to guarantee a throw. Plus, the pub is full of stuff, stuff, and more stuff, that you could spend hours looking at. Plus, as of 2022, this is where …

Libertine

A likeable and reliable locals pub cum bar with pizza, good beer, and a large raised stage – so a great place to put on a darting performance of some description. Over the years this has become my all round favourite contemporary pub which has a dart board (as opposed to a primarily darts pub). It’s also a regular spot …

Bell

A pub, a proper pub, with a games room in the basement. So very likeable. Darts is not the biggest priority for people here, and it is one of the few darts pubs in London that I’ve never thrown a dart in, but it always seems super-friendly, so worth finding any reason to visit.

Brown Bear

A standard pub with an above-standard darts set up, attracting teams on multiple nights. Friendly and helpful as ever on 2022 visit, and some thoughtful touches – a curtain is drawn during matches to the right of the board to prevent randoms walking into the foray.

Carpenters Arms

The board is tucked away at the back of a pub in a dedicated area in this little gem of a boozer just off Oxford Street.  The throw is just a little bit tight, but really, why, why, why wouldn’t you rather be here? (Note, post-pandemic, this is the sort of place that really needs visiting to ensure darts stays …

Cheshire Cheese

This pub has a shrine to Bullseye and quotes from Sid Waddell, amongst its 3 darts board. For years, I never saw anyone actually ever play darts here, but then in 2022 I ran an event which was very much fun and after it finished got heavily beaten by a lad who was practicing on his own. Exactly what ought …
