Great location and open courtyard that’s open to the sunshine, so is good on a sunny day. We just stopped off for a couple of cocktails before lunch. Good seating area outside and in part inside. Nice made strong cocktails at £10.00 each.

As you approach this establishment the entrance sign 'screams' 'The yard welcomes you!' I think I this place might have either been having an off day, or I was somewhere else. At the bar, I was made to feel about as welcome as a fart...More

The cracking courtyard is the best thing about this smashing bar. Smokers can light up without having to spill out onto the street. There are also a couple of heaters but the whole yard isn't heated so wrap up warm if its cold. There is...More

Come here all the time. It's the best place to go in Soho hands down! Recommend it to the Hills!!!! The balcony makes it the only place to have a cigarette outdoors without leaving the venue. Great staff and a great environment.

Advertised 2 for 1 cocktails but it was one cocktail divided into two glasses! Don't mind paying but that is advertising an offer that does not exist! Shame because it is a cool place 🙄

Lovely little courtyard bar in Soho - great too if your a smoker as lots of outside seating with heating lamps - and your not sat out on a roadside! Nice little place - worth lookng out for.

We were only here for a quick pint, but it was a nice place to sit in the yard on a hot day with a cold beer. You're paying Soho prices but if you're not prepared for that then perhaps Soho generally isn't the place...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
