7. The King's Arms, Waterloo

It's a bit of a scramble to get a seat, but it's worth it. Especially when you get a table by the fire.

12. The Bull, Highgate

A friendly local for beer aficionados (it's the home of the London Brewing Company). They also put their fire to good use in winter (as the photo below shows).

13. The White Horse, Fulham

14. The Old Fountain, Finsbury

A handy one to note if you're in the city. Yes there's a fire, but there's also a roof terrace for warmer days.
