Do you like visiting traditional English pubs? Did you know that London is still one of the best cities in the UK for pub culture? Well it’s true. While many newer, snazzier establishments seem to cater exclusively for the international tourist market, London’s authentic pub culture is thriving. In fact, a visit to an English pub is one of the best ways to enjoy the traditional side of the capital.
Moreover, it might surprise you to know that Latin escorts of Lilyfields London escort agency love spending time in a proper English pub. Sure, they will never turn down a night in a luxurious suite in the Ritz, but the truth is, they enjoy the cosy atmosphere of a London pub almost as much. That makes them the perfect companions for an evening of traditional pub culture. But where should you take them? Here’s our top 4 picks for London pubs you can visit with a Latin escort from Lilyfields.
The Spaniard’s Inn is located across from Hampstead Heath in North London and is one of our favourite pubs due to its impressive literary heritage. It featured in The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens, as well as Bram Stoker’s Dracula (van Helsing rests here between driving stakes through vampiric hearts). The atmosphere inside the Spaniard’s Inn wood-panelled interiors naturally evokes romance, and you and your Latin date should head to the first-floor dining room for unparalleled views across the Heath.
Lamb and Flag
Another of Dickens’s favourite watering holes is found slap bang in the middle of Central London’s tourist zone. The Lamb and Flag in Covent Garden dates back to 1772, when it was famed for being one of the roughest pubs in London, with bare-knuckle boxing bouts most nights of the week. These days the Lamb and Flag is a much friendlier affair, serving real ales and traditional pub fayre made using local produce from the nearby farmers market. Its convenient location in Covent Garden makes it ideal for a date with a Latin escort.
Prospect of Whitby
The rather oddly named Prospect of Whitby dates back to 1520. The pub is located in Wapping in the former London Docklands, and was a former meeting place of thieves, smugglers, sailors and pirates. You can certainly feel the rough history of London’s netherworld seeping through the oak panels of the interior.
But the Prospect of Whitby is one of the best London pubs to visit on a summer’s day, since the beer garden has incredible views of the Thames. This pub was a favourite haunt of Samuel Pepys – and if you visit this joint with one of our stunning Latin companions, you will look forward to saying, “and so to bed” at the end of the night.
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese
But we are saving the best of London’s traditional pubs for last. Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, found on an alley off Fleet Street, has existed on its present site since 1538, although it did need to be rebuilt after the Great Fire. This is another pub with great literary traditions, with GK Chesterton, Arthur Conan Doyle and – once again – Charles Dickens being regular visitors (seriously, did Dickens spend all his time in pubs? It sure sounds like it).
Every monarch who has reigned since the pub opened is written on the side of entrance (there are 15 names by now) and this is one of the best places in London to enjoy real ales. We also think you and your Latin companion will enjoy the steak and ale pies, although we recommend sharing one between you.
Which of these traditional London pubs will you enjoy next? One thing is for sure, if you visit in the company of one of our elite Latin escorts, you will experience a convivial atmosphere filled with warmth and romance.
