All Bar One, Kingsway, central London

Perennially popular, light and airy bar well-positioned to serve local office workers. Fills up early and it can be tricky to get a seat, particularly when tables are reserved for leaving drinks or birthday parties. On tap is a broad range of pricey beers, including Amstel, Staropramen and other strong European lagers. Perhaps the best thing about this chain is the relatively-swift table service by the young, white-shirted staff, meaning you don't have to break off conversation to go and queue at the bar. 6/10
