Thanks to those guys that left helpful comments. Will probably try Napolean's in Leicester Square.

Thanks in advance.
If you're not adverse to travelling out of London for a game, then you could do worse than visit one of the Galas a bit out of town. There are two in Northampton with £3 mins on the BJ tables, and the one in Leicester has BJ at a quid min before 2.00pm, after which they open the main gaming floor and the min goes up to £2. Usual 6 deck shoe games with the pentration being dealer dependent - usally around the 75%ish mark in my experience though. Might be worth one of those el-cheapo off peak return train tickets?

If it has to be London then I think Napoleon's in Leicester Square comes top of the list, although you can forget about all of the back-counting stuff anytime after 6.00pm. Oh, and be aware that the staff there are more savvy than in other places I've played at and will pick up on hefty bet spreads on large bets.

Good luck.

Could you let us know when "it certainly used to the case" I'm always interested in changing game conditions and times.

I would also still be interested on when was the last time you played in London? As I stated, I've played in London a number of times this past decade.

Thanks!

Thumbs down The Facts. ! Only the Facts !

The BJ rules in effect in England were traditionally dreadful,
e.g. being forbidden to split 4ís or 5ís, or 10ís and insurance only against a Dealerís Ace.

The rules slightly changed ó 23 months ago ó and attached is a link that I am providing,
of the official document from the British Gaming Commission, entitled Rules of Casino Games in Great Britain

Read about the explicit changes in British casino games:

London's like Munich - there is nowhere cheap from May/June onwards unless you want to suffer a dive somewhere. I would suggest taking a look at the London underground map, and look for accommodation or a camping site close to a tube station towards the end of the lines - ie Barnet in North London, Upminster in the East etc. Travel time into Central London will be around 30 to 40 minutes on the tube.
