A cosy and unique traditional pub just off Carnaby Street

The Shaston Arms joined the Hall & Woodhouse family in 2000 and whilst it may be small, it simply oozes traditional character and charm. Full of nooks and crannies and quirky features, the pub is known for its 70s and 80s music and chilled and relaxing vibe, ideal for a quiet drink with colleagues, family or friends.

Indeed the pub is not without its history, as ‘Shaston’ is the Dorset nickname for Shaftesbury mentioned in Thomas Hardy books and the walls of the pub are adorned with old pictures of the town, as well as the famous writer himself.

Today the pub services the needs of the local Media fraternity, as well as bustling Carnaby Street and is also a shrine for the rich and famous, with most notably Jude Law, Gwen Stefani, Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Gok Wan and Frank Lampard having visited in recent times.
