The French House features in these AIL lists...

The best pubs in Soho
One of Sohoís most decadent pubs, The French House is a beauty. It is the thinking persons pub. Lager served by the half, Breton cider by the bottle and a vast wine list. Originally opened by a German gentleman (then known as The Wine House), the pub on Dean Street has long been a favourite of the capitalís artists and writers and you can still feel it. Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon were both regulars.

London's great literary pubs
Artists, writers and poets could regularly be found in the French House back in the post-war years. Dylan Thomas was known to have once left behind his hand-written manuscript of Under Milk Wood here in 1953. It was found and promptly sold. What goes around comes around.
