There are some pubs in London you would do well to avoid - this isn't one of them...

The Tudor Rose is, in fact, a pleasant pub situated very close to some of the most bustling areas of London. It has a very attractive Tudor exterior (of the type people normally associate with Shakespearian buildings - white walls with black woodwork), though inside it is more like a traditional British pub.

The attraction of this place surely must be its location - close to a lot of the major areas, yet at a point between them which makes it a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle of the streets around it (which include Oxford Street and Baker Street).

It offers all the standard pints you may expect, with a couple of hand-pulls for good measure - but this isn't important - it is the feeling you can sit down and take a load off your legs, safe in the knowledge that should you wish to rejoin the rat race, you are a matter of only minutes away from it - though you probably won't feel like it in your current clam and tranquil surroundings.

Just looking at the pub gives you the idea that it seems a little bit out of time with the rest of the buildings, like a little piece of history existing within an increasingly more modern area - but long may it continue.

This place seems to stand steadfastly against the common-in-London desire to take something old and turn it into a gastropub, a music venue, or some such other function other than the purpose it was originally created for. This can only be a good thing, as there are people who like the idea of going to a pub for a quiet drink to be just, well, going to the pub for a quiet drink. For me personally, I'm all for that - thanks Tudor Rose...
