Seven Pubs, Seven Sins: Lust

Next up in the Seven Sins pub crawls is Lust. This one takes a lovely stroll from Fleet Street across to Mayfair in search of pubs with rude and amusing names.

Start at Ye Olde Cock Tavern on Fleet Street and then make your way North past Holborn (cutting through Sicilian Avenue and the Whippet if you fancy an extra pub) to the Plough just by the British Museum. Both Greene Kings, they clearly like a dirty name.

Next make your way over to Oxford Circus and visit another Cock Tavern (not so Olde, this one) and the a little bit down the road to the Cock & Lion. Assuming you’ve had enough Cocks at this point, cross Oxford Street and find the Spread Eagle (yet another Greene King pub). A very short walk then down to Balls Brothers at the end of the road.

Finish the crawl with a little walk back to Picadilly and a trip to the Queen’s Head. A great independent pub and perfect spot to finish off the rest of the night.
