King's Arms, The - Waterloo

The King's Arms - Waterloo

In a street that looks like it hasn't changed since Charlie Chaplin was a boy you'll find a pub with equally compelling historical charms. The King's Arms is an absolute gem, a dark-wood, multi-roomed masterpiece of a pub - and the beer's pretty good too. Long known for the quality of its cask beer, The King's Arms has raised its game when it comes to keg too - expect to find some of London's bright young things there (Fourpure, The Kernel, Camden). The nine real-ale pumps, meanwhile, might include beers from Dark Star, Redemption, Sharp's, Adnams or By The Horns.
