The Windsor CastleCertainly one of the oddest and most patriotic pubs in London, The Windsor Castle is more a museum to the essence of old-fashioned Englishness than a pub. Glass cabinets filled with guns and gunpowder, coins and cameos, photos, decorative plates, and an unrivalled collection of items dedicated to the Windsor Royal Family fill every spare inch of space inside. Outside, a model soldier standing to attention in a full-sized sentry box, guards the entrance, while Oliver Read and John Hurt join Prince Charles and Princess Diana in populating the photo collection around the bar. Pay a visit to this idiosyncratic inn and you'll be in good company; a host of English celebrity icons have propped up the bar here, including Cockney comedian Joe Brown, cricketer Mike Gatting, actor Dennis Waterman and English footballing hero Bobby Moore. And if that wasn't enough, this homely hostelry is also home to the uniquely famous and historic, Handlebar Club... Founded in 1947, this international club for men with handlebar moustaches otherwise known as "hirsute appendages of the upper lip, with graspable extremities" was formed in the dressing room of the Windmill Theatre by comedian Jimmy Edwards and now holds its regular meetings here. Celebrate the traditions of English eccentricity and humour in this friendly, crazy, cavern of clutter. Oh they also serve traditional English cuisine (Thai!) from 6pm to 10pm.

Best for:
Guns and gunpowder, coins and cameos, Prince Charles and Lady Di, Mike Gatting and moustaches, Bobby Moore and beer.
