London's best pubs with rooms

Drinkies, then off to bed...

There's nothing worse than having a lovely night, holed up in a great pub, only to have to put on your hat and scarf and make the long trudge home. But what if it doesn't have to be that way?

What if you could just take your empties up to the bar (because we're not animals), grab a room key, and then simply skip up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire and straight into bed... might not even brush our teeth first (OK, so it turns out we are animals).

Well, this is all a possibility if you choose to stay in one of these great pubs with rooms...

York & Albany
127-129 Parkway NW1 7PS
Region: Primrose Hill
Nearest Station: Camden Town (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: Part of Gordon Ramsay’s empire, York & Albany sits in a restored coaching inn a couple of minutes’ walk from Regent’s Park. Along with a classic British menu and nine townhouse-style rooms, there’s also a casual pizza deli.

The Orange
37 Pimlico Road SW1W 8NE
Region: Chelsea
Nearest Station: Sloane Square (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: After a refit this former pub now has a ground floor bar and an upstairs restaurant specialising in wood-fired pizzas with ex-Murano chef Diego Cardoso at the helm. The four shabby-chic rooms overlook Pimlico Road and the leafy Orange Square.

The Malt House
17 Vanston Place SW6 1AY
Region: Fulham
Nearest Station: Fulham Broadway (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: The Malt House is best known for being owned by Claude Bosi, Michelin-starred chef of Hibiscus, along with his brother Cedric. Although he isn’t present in the kitchen, the food is of a similarly fine standard albeit in a casual setting. The six rooms are very simple, but do have particularly comfy beds and luxury toiletries.

The Fox & Anchor
115 Charterhouse Street EC1M 6AA
Region: The City
Nearest Station: Farringdon (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: Located opposite Smithfield Market, the rooms at this pub take their inspiration from the area’s Victorian heritage – the suite even boasts a free standing copper bath. The food is all about pub classics, but for the very hungry the City Boy Breakfast is highly recommended, a mammoth meal with bacon, sausages, steak, kidneys, liver, black pudding, eggs, beans and a pint of Stout.

    The Alma
    499 Old York Road SW18 1TF
    Region: Wandsworth
    Nearest Station: Wandsworth Town

    AIL Says: Wandsworth’s The Alma combines a Victorian-style pub with a boutique hotel with 23 rooms. It’s an eco-friendly venue, with solar panels on the roof providing electricity and heating. Guests also get complimentary use of the nearby Virgin Active gym. Meanwhile in the pub there arehearty dishes like beer battered fish and chips and British charcuterie platters, while beers are from local breweries Sambrooks and Twickenham Ales.

    The Fox Club
    46 Clarges Street W1J 7ER
    Region: Mayfair
    Nearest Station: Green Park

    AIL Says: Although it functions as a private members club in the heart of Mayfair, The Fox Club is open to all for dining and sleeping. Food is simple (roast chicken with polenta, fillet of cod with coriander sauce) and the rooms are homely but modern, some with fireplaces.It’s also not as expensive as its Clarges Street address might suggest.

    • USERS 5/10
    The Windmill On The Common
    Clapham Common South Side SW4 9DE
    Region: Clapham
    Nearest Station: Clapham South (0.3 miles)

    AIL Says: Clapham may not be the first choice for visitors, the area has a burgeoning dining and nightlife scene, plus the rates are far cheaper than at most central London hotels plus. Rooms are comfortable and family-friendly, while there’s pub grub and drinks supplied by Young’s, who are also the owners.

      The Hand & Flower
      1 Hammersmith Road W14 8XJ
      Region: West Kensington
      Nearest Station: Kensington (Olympia) (0.1 miles)

      AIL Says: Not to be confused with Michelin-starred The Hand & Flowers in Buckinghamshire, The Hand & Flower is a Fuller’s pub with rooms a stone’s throw from Kensington Olympia. Rooms start from just £75 a night and the restaurant serves steaks, fish and chips and black pudding hash.

        The Pilot Inn
        68 Riverway SE10 0BE
        Region: Greenwich
        Nearest Station: North Greenwich (0.4 miles)

        AIL Says: Handy for the O2 Centre as well as the picturesque Greenwich Village, the Pilot is family-friendly and boasts a large beer garden. Given that it’s owned by Fuller’s you can expect typical pub food along with a claim to offering the biggest cheese board of any British pub. Some rooms have views of the O2.

          Grazing Goat
          6 New Quebec Street W1H 7RQ
          Region: Mayfair
          Nearest Station: Marble Arch (0.1 miles)

          AIL Says: Run by the same company as The Orange, The Grazing Goat has a similar country-meets-city aesthetic. The gastropub offers classic British dishes and Sunday roasts, and the rooms have been designed with relaxation in mind, with plenty of oak panelling and standalone bathtubs.
