The Seven Stars pub in Holborn, London, has been voted Best Pub in the Time Out Eating and Drinking Awards.
The winner was voted for by the magazine's readers and a panel that reviewed the outlet for service, ambience, value for money and food and drink.
Guy Dimond, food and drink editor for Time Out, said: "Although up against powerful competition, it squeezed through because of a broad range of plus points.
"We were impressed by the marriage of old and new, its lively atmosphere, the quality of drinks and meals and the friendliness and efficiency of the staff.
"Relatively new licensee Roxy Beaujolais - cookery writer and late of the Three Greyhounds in Old Compton Street - has brought some style to one of London's most historic pubs."
The new pub category in the famous awards was introduced to reflect London's return to pub culture. Finalists included the Golden Heart in Shoreditch, the Greenwich Union in Greenwich, the Royal Oak in London Bridge and the Swimmer at the Grafton Arms in Holloway.
