Welcome to the London Random Pub Finder. It is our mission to return a joyful element of luck to the night on the tiles, to free the harassed from the onerous duties of choosing a pub for the big night out (which everyone then complains about anyway), to allow the pub going public to throw themselves into the arms of fate!

It's all very simple. The Random Pub Finder is a guide to the greatest London pubs, as picked and reviewed by our exclusive panel. All you need to do is click on our Pub Randomizer and one of our wonderful London pubs will be chosen as your venue, along with a description written by the panel.

Top 5 traditional pubs

1. The Black Lion, Plaistow
It's been around for 500 years and knows how to do things properly. Once a coaching inn, it has a welcoming aura of conviviality and hospitality that is impossible to beat.
2. The Market Porter, London Bridge
Under a railway, and standing next door to Borough Market in a gloomily magnificent Victorian street, this opens at 6am for first orders. A pub that has the lot, including a consistently varied range of real ales and a fabulous restaurant upstairs.
3. The Prospect of Whitby, Wapping
There are some great Wapping pubs, but this Scandanavian award winner is by far the best. Bag a terrace seat and spend an afternoon watching the river.
4. Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street
With cellars beneath its cellars, wood panelled rooms and several floors of restaurants, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese is the jewel in the Sam Smith's brewery crown. Samuel Johnson used to drink here, and there's no excuse for you not to as well.
5. The King's Arms, Roupell Street, Southwark
Quintessential British Boozer, with several bars and a cracking food menu to boot. Fantastic location too, on The Street Where Time Stood Still.
