Rest & Be Thankful No.4 An Hourly Emergency Bulletin for West End Xmas Shoppers #XmasInLondon #shoppingishell

For those of you out and about today on the busiest shopping day of the year… TIME TO TAKE A BREAK from the hell of Oxford Street & surrounding environs! Head for…

The Green Man,
36 Riding House Street
(Tube: Goodge Street/Warren Street)

Character takes time. And the Green Man has been sufficiently patient to end up being positively eccentric.

It was always one of central London’s oddest little pubs, not least because it is tucked away in a Fitzrovian backstreet, “hidden” in the heart of W1. At a certain time of night, when the local office drones have drained away down the Tube like so much dirty bathwater, it is a veritable pub paradise.  Friendly, easy going staff, too, and pretty good food.
