This immaculate late Victorian pub fits perfectly into classy Mayfair. The exterior is dressed in pretty pale pink terracotta tiles, its large arched windows in turned hardwood frames, are decorated with window boxes of vibrant flowers and tumbling ivy. Inside it is more like a gentlemen’s club than a pub, with dark wooden panelled walls, highly polished hardwood fittings and some delicate carving. Original crystal chandeliers hang beneath an ornate plaster ceiling. A long hardwood bar counter serves the two bar areas; one provides ample seating and tables for diners. The other has a series of U-shaped leather benches which run along the exterior wall. The screens that separate them once extended to the bar, dividing it into several small booths. The ceiling clock gives away the Audley’s origins as the Audley Hotel. There is a good selection of bar meals, including many traditional English dishes. Children are welcome before 6pm. A stone’s throw from the U.S. Embassy, in June 2009, Michelle Obama brought her children here for fish and chips.
