Unique, eccentric awesomeness. Just one of those London Pubs you have to experience I feel compelled to say. Quiet back street that is Carey street, drop off your Boris Bike and fall for Roxy’s charm, booze and delicious scram. Wholeheartedly recommend!

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
