Badger ales on hand pumps - I had Tanglefoot. More bottles in the fridge. Very busy with both bars being full of diners, most of whom were tucking into very nice looking fish and chips. Would return.

Right opposite Big Ben, but quite easy to walk past without really noticing it and thus most customers seem to be local office workers rather than tourists. Two traditional (if small) bars, richly decorated with a host of interesting features to look at. If too crowded downstairs, it is usually worth looking for a seat in the balcony area. One bank of four handpumps in each bar, usually offering the regulars Badger and Tanglefoot plus a seasonal (Glorious Game, £4.05, on my last visit) and sometimes Sussex or First Call. Overall, well worth a visit (even if, like me, you are not a particular fan of Hall & Woodhouse).

Hall and Woodhouse tied house very close to Big Ben and with an interesting interior.The front public bar is small and has an attractive bar back with etched glass .There is limited seating around the periphery.The rear lounge is only marginally larger and has mirror cabinet design on the walls and a small flatscreen playing BBC Parliament,not surprising given the location.The high ceiling in the public bar gives a feel of oppulance,but both bars can get hectic at popular times.Up a staircase adorned with framed newspaper cuttings of political landmarks is a restaurant,although I didnt explore up there.
The four handpumps were dispensing H&W Badger First Call (OK condition £3.65),Fursty Ferret and Tanglefoot.I find their brews too malty and hop-lite ,and I suspect that may also be the reason for a very transient trade,folk dont seem to base themselves here for a session.I certainly wouldnt ,but it's fine for a quick one and a chance to look around.
