Basically, I'm a massive fan of scotch and I was wondering if anyone has been to a place I can enjoy a good single malt in central London? I've only recently moved here, and so some recommendations would be ideal.

No question, you need Boisdale in Belgravia. It's the Scottish Embassy in London. Huge range of single Malts, a Cigar Terrace and the foods not bad (most of the time) Also they have Jazz most evenings.

Check it out here: http://www.boisdale.co.uk/belgravia/

Try the Scotch Malt Whisky Association, http://www.smws.co.uk/venues/19_Greville_Street,_London

You have to become a member or get signed in, but it's worth it.........

Sorry, that should be the Scotch Malt Whisky Society....the Association is a different kettle of fish......

hey aldridge got a couple of places i would recommend one being albannach on trafalgar sq which is pretty expensive i must say the other which is one of my many favorite my favorite pubs in london on wellington street called the coach and horses ask for the whiskey menu when you arrive they hold quite a range in stock at very reasonable prices for central london.
failing that if you like a good traditional pub with fantastic real selection head over to the harp (i love this place) in chandos place about ten mins walk from the coach a great little pub with a fantastic atmosphere.
enjoy your time here:smile:

oh yeah without a doubt albannach is not cheap. The coach and horses could probably be a little deceiving a place you would prob walk staight past not the most fancy of places but just an honest little british pub dont forget to ask for the whiskey menu as not all their whiskey is easy to see on display.:smile:

theres one near marble arch that has quite a good selection, heaters outside too.

salt bar, salt whisky bar, or something along those lines.
