The Surprise at Pimlico, Pimlico

OK dartboard though the lack of any marks on the floor to show where to throw from is a bit of a problem. Beer OK.

The Duchy Arms, Kennington

Superb oche area, with plenty of chalkboard space. Good beer, including a guest ale (harveys at time of writing).

The Royal Albert, South Lambeth

Don't bother going in to play darts, as there isn't a board. Beer pretty poor too.

The Market Porter, Borough

As mentioned above, has 2 dartboards. Unfortunately they are purely for decoration, as the tables on the oche's are permanently occupied. Maybe if you pop in at 7am after getting bored of arranging oranges in a body-centred cubic lattice you might get close enough to a board to open the cabinet. Undeniably superb beer, particularly if you enjoy being served short measures by eastern Europeans.

The New Prince, Surbiton

Darts area tucked away to the back of the pub. You might find a few tables on the oche, but if you find them unoccupied and move them aside, you will find an excellent darts cabinet housing a good board. In fact, an excellent place to throw, and good beers too from the Fullers/Gales range.

The Halfway House, Barnes

Dodgy dartboard can be reached by moving a table or two. Good beer.

The Royal Standard, Wandsworth

As long as there isn't a big rugby game on the TV, an excellent place for some darts. Beer reasonable.

The Scarborough Arms, Whitechapel

Good darts pub. Dedicated area downstairs, with upstairs also available for darts on some match nights. Good beer.

The Exmouth Arms, Exmouth Market

Nice well-lit dartboard. A small table often finds it's way onto the oche, but can usually be moved without causing any inconvenience. Beer not bad.

The Horseshoe, Clerkenwell

One of Londons best darts pubs, one permanent oche, up to five in total on big darts occasions. Good beer.

The Horseshoe Inn, London Bridge

Excellent oche, acceptable beer. The board is well used, and is a blade III so can't be that old. One small criticism is that it if you move to the right on the oche you hit a wall.

The Lord Clyde, Borough

A pub which is the home venue for a couple of darts teams, though in the absence of organised darts you can often turn up and find a table on the oche with a family of 12 tucking into their dinner. Good beer.

The Nightingale, Balham

Excellent oche area, good beer too.

The Wheatsheaf, Borough

Unfortunately the advertised 'Dartboard' is actually an empty darts cabinet. Arghhhhh.

The Market Porter, Borough

OK, great beer. Unfortunately, rubbish for darts. 2 boards, as advertised above, but both have tables on the oche, which are generally occupied. Dartboards aren't ornaments you know. Disappointing in a pub which clearly tries to be traditional.

The Duke of Somerset, Aldgate

OK darts area. Maybe slightly too close to the pool tables, which seem to often be full of city tossers playing a 25-person game of killer. Karaoke can also get in the way of darts. Beer poor.

The Lambeth Walk, Lambeth

Excellent place for darts, dedicated oche area, you're never going to turn up and find a table of people eating their dinner on the oche. Beer just about drinkable.

The Rising Sun, Belgravia

Good ache area, occasional problems if someone is sitting on one small nearby table, otherwise, a nice throw. Beer ok.

The Hope, Tottenham Court Road

Head up the stairs, what's this in the corner? Hurrah, a darts cabinet. Open it up, oh dear. There is a round thing which looks like a dartboard but isn't. OK beer at least.
