A Short Sprint to Fine Food
London is the 'Gastropub' capital - and this one is a beauty
Location: 5 Charles Street, W1J 5DE
Description: So it's official...London is the 'Gastropub' capital! 10 percent of the 563 entries in the Michelin's 'Eating Out in Pubs 2009' guide are in the smoke!
And so to this beauty - 'The Only Running Man' - well first and foremost what a name...and secondly, cracking food is on offer.
The newly brushed-up pub in Mayfair definitely hasn't lost any of its British roots in the process. This much-loved pub, restaurant and private event space houses elegant, yet unpretentious surroundings, complete with a truly British menu featuring home-grown produce direct from the farmers.
Guests can slide up to the long mahogany bar or comfy booth seating and enjoy traditional Blighty breakfasts or old-style pub menu favourites later on.
But don't take our word for it - let your appetite lead the way.
