Tris C left this review about The Coach & Horses

A nightingale’s chirp from Berkeley Square, dating from 1744, this boasts being the oldest pub in Mayfair, grade II-listed and cited on CAMRA’s list of pubs with historic interiors, being of Some Regional Importance, on account of the fine but simple mirrored bar back and beautiful canopy; the carpeted snug also has a lovely marble and carved wood surround. Otherwise, the interior is rather elegant. The floor is modern bare boarded, the walls are chocolate brown whilst the richly detailed ceiling with egg and dart cornice is white, Anaglypta to both. There are swag curtains with sturdy brass curtain rails. Furniture is conventional, with some studded banquettes; lighting comes from brass lanterns over the bar, with Victorian-style sconces and a few candles in jars; decent music played at an acceptable level.
Being a Shep’s house, nothing other than their beers were ever going to be available, but just the two: Whitstable Bay and Spitfire at £2.80 a half and rather nice, served by a barman wearing a stupid pair of pointy ears.
This is quite a fine pub and with a greater selection of ales could be a destination, but it’s worth a look for the lovely interior.

A fine street corner building in Mayfair and not to be confused with another Coach & Horse to the east of Berkeley Square,it's a Shepherd Neame tied house.Essentially a single room ,but with an attractive high ceiling,a decent carved wood bar back and leather backed bench seating apart from at the front where there are a few high circular tables ,it's all quite traditional.There is an unused fireplace beyond the bar on the left side.and gentle jazz was playing on my lunchtime visit.
Just two ales abvailable SN Spitfire and Winstable Bay Pale Ale (decent,£4.25),while the food menu was a mix of pizze ,pub grub and sandwiches with mains starting at £12 which seemed pricey to me.
Limited ale options would make this a one pint stop,but it's decent enough if crawling the area.

An attractive corner pub just off the historied Berkeley Square, this Grade II lister has apparently been in existence since 1744 and is currently in the clutches of those Kentish tyros Shepherd Neame. A small, high-ceilinged, woody room with bar against the far wall, albeit jutting into at least one half of it, it was packed with after-work suits on my week-night visit. Spitfire and Whitstable Bay on the stumps - two banks of two either side of the bar; the Spitfire £2.30 for a half, which is probably about right for the location. Closed at weekends (although available for hire at the right price) there's also a dining area upstairs for the limited food hours of 12-4 Monday to Friday.
