Stop at The Wheatsheaf on Rathbone Place and you'll be having a pint where people like George Orwell, Anthony Burgess and Dylan Thomas have stopped and supped before you. Framed copies of articles on the walls at the front of the bar allude to the pub's literary past. There's much to recommend this small pub which feels like not much has changed in the intervening years. There's some fantastic stain glass windows and wooden panelling as well as good cask ale. The upstairs space is home to comedy nights hosted by The 99 Club as well as monthly meetings of The New Sheridan Club (a decendent of The Chap magazine) and the Sohemian Society who meet here to read, talk and about famous Fitzrovian and Soho characters. The Wheatsheaf is well worth a visit to get away from the mayhem of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street.
