The name would imply a place most dedicated students would hope to never find themselves, but The Court draws in a lively young crowd of regulars thanks to the venue’s proximity to the main dorms of the University of London.

Daytime hours see the big group tables crammed with students taking a break from brain-busting midterms, as tourists make a pit stop at the long main bar, a welcome alternative to the more refined cocktail lounges and gastropubs that dominate this stretch of Tottenham Court.

Partitioned nooks toward the back of the open room provide a bit of privacy for couples looking to enjoy their cheap tap beers away from the frat-like atmosphere, while young professionals unwind around the pool tables and arcade games, pump money into the jukeboxes, or – when there’s a sporting event – join the rest of the rowdy fans around one of the flat-screens.

Outside, five large picnic tables accommodate the overflow on warm evenings, and each are comfortably equipped with heating lamps for those London nights when a warm beer just isn’t enough.

With affordable burgers and pints mixed in with an outgoing party crowd, The Court’s laid-back, no-frills approach makes it easy for patrons to pass judgment on a fun night.

Tip from Lucas:

Perfect place to start the night. Head in around 8:30pm for a burger, some cheap pints, and a few games of pool – oh, and to talk smack to the Chelsea or Arsenal fans – before moving on.

  • Crowd

    Local and study abroad university students, sports fans, and young professionals, early 20s to late 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Mix of classic rock and American and British pop songs on the pair of jukeboxes.

    Quiz nights on Sundays (patrons must sign up by 8pm). Two pool tables and arcade games. Flat-screen TVs mostly tuned to sports.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    The bar draws a good crowd from Mondays through Thursdays around 9pm.

  • Close By

    Spearmint Rhino (161 Tottenham Court Road) offers study breaks in the form of lap dances, a good way to take pressure off of school work.

An underrated place for lunch
Sarah L. Nov 1, 2013
Since it is so close to a university campus, of course this place is always poppin' at night with people getting off of work and class. However, what people might not know, is that the Court is always a nice place to grab lunch! My friends and I have made it a tradition to go here after class every week, and every time we have good food and good conversation. Plus, they always have a great burger and beer deal, and their fish and chips are pretty good, too. Plus, my friend is really into soccer and they always have a game playing. I think we are definitely going to try and keep this tradition through the end of the term.
