My brother and I wandered around the Tottenham Court Road area and called into the Toucan and was very impressed. The bar tender was very friendly and the Meantime Pale Ale was very refreshing.

The Toucan pub has the best Guinness in London. The staff is very kind and the place is so nice! Well located and easily accessible for those in the center shopping on Piccadilly and strolling through SoHos

One of my favourite pubs in london, been coming here for years. No frills, just a great pint of Guinness. They've now branched out with a couple of lagers but that hasn't spoilt the place. Pretty reasonably priced for soho too.

If its the craic and the Guinness you are after you'll find it at the Toucan. It's a Soho institution in the heart of London off Oxford Street that has the Guinness flowing. They also serve the Irish crisps Tayto, which are a must!

and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
