With its original Victorian burgundy ceiling, chandeliers and clocks, and its location between Berkley Square and Park Lane, pubs do not come much grander than this. Commissioned by the first Duke of Westminster in the early 1880s, the Audley's neo-French Renaissance aesthetic - all red brickwork and pink terracotta - was designed to please the most gentlemanly of gentlemen. And, to a degree, it still is. With a full array of drinks on offer, and a friendly, old-school-tie charm, The Audley is a cut above more rank and file boozers, and a good deal classier than the fashionable bars of the city. Beware, though, on weekends it fills up with tourists, often eager to sample its traditional English fare; several courses, complete with port and stilton.
