Our Favourite Venues for the Cigar Smoker


We receive many emails asking "Where can I smoke cigars in London and the UK?" So, as I "herf" across the country, I’ll update this page with cigar friendly locations as an easy reference. There are of course loads of other ‘COSA’s (comfortable outdoor smoking areas) but these are the ones that I enjoy going to.

You can of course sample cigars inside (where legal) at any of our cigars shops across the country including:

Alfie Turmeaus - London Mayfair
Robert Graham Ltd - London West Hampstead
Turmeaus - Liverpool
Turmeaus - Chester
Robert Graham Ltd - Cambridge
Turmeaus - Norfolk


Enjoy a cigar at...

The Wellesley Hotel
11 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7LY
The Wellesley Hotels exudes luxury and comfort on it's beautiful cigar terrace (in fact there are two!). Excellent menu that can be enjoyed on the terrace. Humidor with an incredible range of aged and rare Havana cigars and a bar with a most impressive range of single malt whisky makes this venue our firm favourite. Giuseppe and his highly trained staff (to Master of Cigars level) offer the finest in advice and hospitality.

Bulgari Hotel & Residences
171 Knightsbridge, London, SW7 1DW
Hidden away at the top of a staircase at this magnificent hotel, you will find the Edward Sahakian shop and cigar sampling lounge. A delightful venue ably managed by Mike Choi. Recently qualified as Master of Cigars, you can be assured of the best of advice from Mike as well as a fine range of Havana cigars to sample. Both recent production and vintage Havanas. Comfortable and cool place to herf.

Ten Manchester Street Hotel
10 Manchester Street, London, W1U 4DG
Very comfortable outdoor covered and heated terrace as well as a splendid indoor sampling room and well stocked humidor. First rate menu and first rate service, easy parking too make this a firm favourite.

Boisdale Canary Wharf
Cabot Place, London, E14 4QT
We love Boisdale! Super large cigar terrace, a whisky bar that goes on forever, cigar library/sampling room. Great range of cigars, great value and quality menu, excellent service and jazz music too… Who could ask for more?

Boisdale Belgravia
15 Eccleston Street, Belgravia, SW1W 9LX
Super location with generally easy parking. Excellent heated and covered terrace and good range of cigars. The menu is great value as are the Boisdale wines and champagne. One of my favourites places to herf over the last 10 years.

Boisdale Bishopsgate
Swedeland Court, 202 Bishopsgate, EC2M 4NR
The usual excellent Boisdale fare and if you find yourself in the City there is a small covered heated area by the front entrance where you can enjoy a smoke.

The Lamb at Hinden
The Lamb Inn Hindon, Wiltshire, SP3 6DP
Another one from the Boisdale Group. Decent range of smokes and comfortable outdoor smoking area.

The Ritz
150 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9BR
The Ritz casino Club has a splendid cigars sampling lounge, not easy to find! But a great place to unwind with a cigar and glass of champagne.
 
The Lanesborough Hotel
Hyde Park Corner, London, SW1X 7TA
A firm favourite of mine for many years, though soon to close down for a massive refurb' (the hotel) - can't wait till it reopens. Best smoked salmon in London, super service, great range of cigars and very comfortable covered and heated terrace.

Franco's
61 Jermyn St, London, SW1Y 6LX

Great place for a smoke and just around the corner from our new Glasgow Robert Graham shop
