It's a Thursday evening i've been at a conference all day and need a stiff drink. I come out of the conference centre turn to my left and i see the Westminster Arms. It would be rude not to make my first visit to this traditional Shepherd and Neame pub.

It's very busy outside but luckyily there's room at the bar to order and stand. I'm greeted by 5 bar staff who are working quickly and efficiently

On the bar for ale drinkers are 7 taps all offering Sheps ales. The several pints of Goldings I have during the course of the evening are all very well kept.

Large mirrors adorn the walls giving the impression the pub is bigger than it actually is. As i said earlier this is a very traditional pub.

There's also an upstairs dining room & downstairs wine bar, so plenty of oppertunity for this pub to cash in and during my visit it certainly was.

I'm really unsure why i haven't been here before as it's a cracking pub.

Very close to Westminster Abbey & St James's Park.

Pub off Parliament Square that's full of thrusting civil servants. Quite light and airy and not too busy, but busy enough to create an atmosphere. Beer was mainly Shepherd Neame, and although I'm not a fan of Master Brew (eeeeurghhh) or Spitfire, the Whitstable Pale Ale was very quaffable and at £3.85 per pint is reasonable value for the local area.
While not outstanding I'd go there again if I was in the vicinity.

We visited this pub on a Sunday lunch time with my baby daughter and mother in law. We found the owner rather unpleasant and grumpy. The food portions were minimal and the quality very very very poor. If it wasn't for the location and it's history it should be closed. Maybe an ok place for night drinks

A rather nice pub, can get rather crowded in the evenings due to the regulars of public servants and MPs. I found the atmosphere rather nice and the landlord just adds character and is always willing to talk about football or anything else. Another great thing is that I once stopped in there on the way to a football match in full football regalia and there were no eyes turned in shock or anything like that at all.

Shepherd Neame pub tucked away just around the corner from Westminster Abbey. The bar area has no tables whatsoever. Upright drinking is the norm here. Although there are several stools around the edges. Bare wooden floorboards provide a moody like atmosphere. The presence of a division bell gives an idea as to the clientele. Downstairs appeared to be being used by tourists for a spot of lunch on my visit yesterday. There also seemed to be an upstairs room that was closed. Wimbledon tennis was being shown on the small TV in the corner. Beers available were Canterbury Jack, Master Brew, Bishops Finger & Spitfire. Kent's Best and Late Red pumpclips were turned round. Other than that the drinks range was fairly limited. With the limited range and the lack of seating, I wouldn't go out of my way to return.
