Still pretty much unchanged for the past 20 years. Proper draft Czech beers for less than your pint of Carling up the road.

A classic London place and a distant cousin of the Bohemian Beer Hall in Queens, New York. This is more catering for the post-2004 community but is nonetheless nicely traditional. Lots of Pilsner Urquell on tap plus Budvar dark in bottles (take note: premium lager is still very much just lager so this is needed) and the food has those pallid dumplings and knuckles that visitors to the CR will be familiar with.

Astonishing place! Great atmosphere and friendly welcome. Now £3.50 per half litre. Nonetheless great. The food is excellent and served in huge portions. In fact many options are available as half-portions. 10/10 - definitely a must visit.

As close to a Prague beerhall as you could hope to find in London, it is primarily a non-pretentious gathering place for expats. This is not a contrived hipster affair, this ensures a nice atmosphere and one quickly forgets you are actually sitting in West Hampstead as the sound of drunken Czech fills the air. However, the bar staff are most welcoming to English speakers(the barman once told me that they're proud that we would choose to visit) which is pleasant as these kind of national bars are typically rather suspicious of English visitors.

They serve Pilsner Urquell and Budvar on tap at £3 per half litre, with a reasonable selection of other top Czech beers on bottle. The food menu is typically Czech and reasonably priced, the quality is so-so however.

Very easy to miss this place as it is literally a converted house, however they have made the most of the interior with the various Czech/Slovak retro materials on the walls. The architecture is somewhat dated and there is a definite retro feel to the place. They also have a very spacious beer garden.

Wonderful place - Pilsner Urquell and Budvar on tap. Decent Czech food. There's even Slovak slivowitz for the brave/foolhardy.

This is very much a Czech and Slovak haunt, and Anglos are very much in the minority. Provided you're fine with that you'll fit in well.
