Title: Carnaby Street Crawl
Creator: Steve of N21

Although Carnaby Street is a mere shadow of it's former glorious self and in shopping terms is now about as exciting as a three day old bowl of rice crispies, it is still surrounded by some solid pubs offering a good chice of real ale.
So if you do have to visit here always allow the better half as long as she needs in the copious shoe shoops whilst you sneek off for a decent pint.
If you only have time to try a couple then I would recommend The Old Coffee House at the south end for the Brodies beers, The Sharston Arms just off to the east for Halls and Woodhouse and then the Nicholson's Clachan at the north end has never let me down for having a decent guest beer on.

Switch to route map:


Shakespeare's Head (1)
Not the most inspiring pub, but with an excellent location at the top end of Carnaby Street and usually has four decently kept ales on.
The White Horse (2)
Decent enough two room Nicholson house far enough away from Carnaby Street to be away from the shopping throng. Usually something decent on here
The Shaston Arms (3)
Smallish pub with a bit of character and decent range of Hall & Woodhouse beers and the Badger and Tanglefoot have always been in good condition when I have visited
The Old Coffee House (4)
If you can't make it out to Leyton High Road then you can catch a pint of Brodies in here.
Blue Posts (5)
If you've never visited one of the four Blueposts around the central area then this is your chance. But in saying that it's not the best of the Blue Posts and it's probably not even the best of the Blue posts in the Soho area.
The Clachan (6)
A solid Victorian drinking house well maintained by Nicholsons and usually something good on from the Nicholsons guest lists.
