Inspired by the land of King Arthur legend, this Balham pub is the Holy Grail of winter nights.
As well as serving up a three-course roast, The Avalon is offering a free glass of mulled wine when you buy a £15 tree.
This posh Primrose Hill boozer is known for its top Mediterranean-inspired pub grub, and 17 years after opening it’s still a popular choice.
Head here to chill out in front of a cosy fire with a pint or two.
The Holly Bush
A house built by renowned artist George Romney around 1800, this old-world Hampstead pub has been untouched since.
A charming fireside makes this the perfect place for a festive beverage in London.
