Mark's Bar, Hix, Soho.
There's not many places you can get a martini in Soho at 3pm, but Mark's Bar is open all afternoon for your quiet-but-fancy day-drinking needs. It's dark and cosy whatever the weather, and has soft leather sofas that are perfect for melting into with your book.

The Lyceum Tavern, Covent Garden
Hideaway wooden booths are what makes The Lyceum Tavern one of London's best Sam Smiths pubs, and are a haven from tourist mad Covent Garden. Get there early to secure yourself one and take advantage of their speedy wifi, or just stare into space and enjoy your pint.
