This is very possibly the best place in central London to throw a few darts with a mate, or practice on your own. The board is tucked away on the ground floor in the furthest corner from Trafalgar Square, in a space that is way too small for tables, chairs, or more than one or two darts players – although on my 2024, the space contained two prams, which was a suprise.

In what is a typically busy pub in a typically busy part of town, this is a darting oasis. A wonderwall. Don’t going crying your heart out if your darts slide away into the treble 1. (I’ve actually always rather disliked this pub, at least, until it got closed by the pandemic. Now I hope it lives forever).

Been to this pub?

Tell us when you last played there, so we know the board is still up – and do leave any interesting (clean!) stories while you’re at it.

    Been here so many times, never realised there was a dart board there. Must be really tucked away!

  2. Dan

    Great little corner. Had it to myself.
    Here on a work trip so put the darts in bag just in case

  3. Luke

    Only room for 1 or 2 people in this little area.
    They have 2 oches for the 1 board, but neither are the correct distance by a good few inches.
    The board was also in a disastrous state.
