Trafalgar Tavern, London
Tel: 44 208 858 2909
Concierge.com's insider take:
If you're looking for some history along with your pint, the Trafalgar has plenty of it. Built on the banks of the Thames in South London in 1837—the same year Queen Victoria came to the throne—it was originally called the Old George and was a favorite of such authors as Charles Dickens, William Thackeray, and Wilkie Collins (Dickens actually set part of Our Mutual Friend here). It was also a favored haunt of Liberal MPs who came for the whitebait suppers: tiny deep-fried herring eaten whole. They're still on the menu, as is a good selection of ales. With lots of dark wood and muted colors, its Regency style remains, and the space is divided into lots of smaller rooms, all with great views over the river.
