The Silver Cross is a rather spacious pub located just south of Trafalgar Square (The National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, Canada House, South Africa House, Uganda House and Charing Cross tube station) It's a bit north of No. 10 Downing Street. Nice traditional English pub atmosphere with good British pub fares. Prices are on the high side but to be expected since it's in the city centre right next to tourist attractions and the heart of British politics.

Do be mindful how to place your order at the Silver Cross (like most traditional British pubs). There is no table service. After finding a table, take note of the table number (every table has a little signpost) if you plan to order food, then head over to the serving bar and place your order of beer or whatever beverage you want, and pay the bar tender and bring your drink back to your table yourself. If you're having snack or ordering a meal, place the order with the bar tender also and tell him/ her your table number. You pay at the serving bar too. When the food is ready, the bar staff will bring it to your table. Feel free to leave a tip when placing the order if you feel like it and the service is good.

Went there for 1 pint, ended up staying for 4 and a meal. By the end they already knew what I was drinking and would have it ready for me before I'd even realised what was going on! Thanks especially to Dom and Oxsana for the awesome experience. 10/10 will go again!

Came here on a Sandemans tour recommendation. Fish and chips were delicious. Despite being St Patricks Day our order was served fresh and fast. Staff was pleasant and polite. Would return.
