A small and lively pub in the heart of tourist central. Falls just on the traditional side of touristy, and you can be sure of getting some good ales here.
Tends to have all the major sports events being shown: big screens and Sky Sports. I’m not a big sport fan, though, and - like Phil - I prefer being outside for a drink here. They’re on the sharp angle of two streets which gives them more than their fair share of pavement space, and in good weather there will be chairs outside.
There’s a dining room upstairs, though I’ve not partaken. It always seems to be a stopping point for me, a quick pint between Tottenham Court Road and Leicester Square, or between Charing Cross Rd and Covent Garden.
The Cambridge is a decent central pub that is always always packed due to its location right in Soho. The crowd are a real mixture of pre-clubbing 20-somethings, tourists who accidentally landed there, and some regulars. The landlady is a particularly nice Irish girl who always will attempt to fit you in upstairs for food, and doesn't tend to get irate despite the overcrowded nature of the place.
I've never been anything but impressed with the beer. It's well-kept, and they tend to have 3-4 guests, plus often a trad cider or perry on draught.
Generally it's better to drink here in summer as you can stand outside comfortably and watch the bustling tourist crowds getting into rickshaws and other such gimmicks. Otherwise, prepared to be bumped into quite a lot...
