The Lyric

Soho may not be quite the forbidden thrill it once was but there are still plenty of reasons to head for London's central drinking district. To these can now be added The Lyric, a classic little street-corner Soho boozer in the shadow of The Windmill, London's most venerable strip club, that offers the best variety of beer in this part of town. Expect to find the likes of Magic Rock, Dark Star, Tiny Rebel, Wild Beer, The Kernel, Camden Town, Harbour and Buxton here - basically, any of Britain's best breweries. There's good beer in cask, keg and bottle. A lovely place, although its small size means it fills up very quickly.
