So next stop on our whistle stop Chinese New Year pub crawl (we'd already done De Hems and the Coach & Horses), was the French House. Another appropriate pub for Chinese New Year!
Now both books mention going to the French House on Bastille Day, but seeing as that's on 14th July, I failed miserably! But as I already have plans for that day, so why not go now? So that's exactly what we did.
It's quite a small pub, but does have 2 floors.
Ok, so this pub might be in England, but it refuses to fall into our English ways and serve in pint glasses, so halves it was. And also being very French (and @londonfox's round), it was the most expensive of the rounds so far! But we all had a glass of the house lager (French of course), Meteor. The pub is probably better known for wine and Champagne though than beer.

Since then this place has been attracting a mix of artists ad writers - including Dylan Thomas. I wasn't really taking that much notice at the time, but after reading their website and thinking about it logically now, I can see why this little place attracts that sort of crowd - it has no music, no TV, no machines and probably most uniquely, no mobile phones! I had no idea about the last rule as I took the photo's with my phone, but I'm sure they mean to speak on them rather than use them to take photo's for a blog... I hope... yikes.
Food is served here too, French obviously, but only till 4pm.
You can find the French House at 49 Dean Street, London W1D 5BG.
