4. The Metropolitan Bar, Marylebone Road.

Right next door to Baker Street station, The Metropolitan is named after the line that runs underneath – the building, Chiltern Court, was once the headquarters of the company that built what was the first urban underground rail network.

The Met has some beautiful ceiling details, some very fancy toilets and – at busy times – lots of commuters and tourists.

6. The Ledger Building, West India Quay.

Built at the start of the 19th century, this grand old building was once a dock office and then the ledger house for the West India Dock.

Check out the Doric arch on the way in and marvel at the length of the bar, which extends almost the entire length of the building. Lots of period detail and outside seating too.

One of several Spoons housed in old cinema buildings, the Coronet was originally the Savoy cinema, opened in 1940. It's stuffed with original features, such as huge mirrors and pictures of classic screen stars, and its somehow retains some of the old atmosphere.

9. Hamilton Hall, Liverpool Street Station.

Don't be put off by the hoard of drinkers stood outside on busy nights, the interior of this Spoons – housed in what was the ballroom of the Great Eastern Hotel – is quite spectacular for a chain pub.

Only just in Greater London, but an unusual pub with a lot of history. A former car salesroom that was used to make the floats for flying boats during two world wars, Winston Churchill once addressed the crowds here.
