Its been about 10 years since I've been to the Guinea, this visit was made during a weekday lunch when the pub was heaving with local office workers and the famous pies were flying out the kitchen.

On my return at around 10.45pm on a Friday the pub and dining room were empty, even much so that I had to check they were still serving. Being a Young's pub the ale choice was 3 from their stable plus Sharps Doombar, the pint of Bitter I had was almost the last from the barrel but was still drinkable.

The Guinea is a lovely pub with a rich history and is another Young's pub that was visited by the late Queen Mother, the picture features on the wall. In the toilets are copies of various letters written to the pub congratulating them on a good meal, these letters are from stars far and wide, they range from Bing Crosby to Graham Norton!

Ornate features are still evident with the bar and dining room being separated by a wooden screen.

A cracking interior and exterior. The Guinea is a little gem of a pub and certainly worth seeking out.

The restaurant is excellent though pricey. The pub is also excellent and has preserved its identity as a no nonsense boozer. I saw Tim Martin (Weatherspoons) drinking in there which shows he appreciates proper pubs. They'd occasionally serve short measures and have to be asked to top them up (people should always do this). The Youngs label of course is simply just that - a label. The beer is Wells beer from Bedford.

Visited yesterday for the first time in ages. Fabulous as usual. Lovely selection of beers, polite staff, friendly customers. A fabulous pub in a fabulous location. My partner and I will definitely be returning.

A truly great example of a traditional London pub that caters for its niche market without having to decorate it so, thus keeping its original feel. The pies are legendary, the beer alas is Youngs or their confusing allied relationship with Wells. Staff were lovely, steak Mirabeau sandwiche top notch, and London Gold best of the lot. Not a lot else to say other than I am starting to feel like I'm writing like every other bugger- need a break

Well worth finding - a true London mews pub with the famous pies. You could probably sneak away from work and grab a pint here without the boss knowing (although he's probably in there too!)
