Old pub off the beaten path of busy Covent Garden - thankfully it was sunny outside. Great local ales. Visit every time we travel to London.

A great find. A pint of beer each and bangers and mash and fish and chips. Nice sausages and the fish was lovely and fresh. Helpful staff. Great old heritage listed pub. A must

Typical English Pub. One of the oldest. Worth it for a true pub experience! We were able to get a table upstairs though a room was reserved so I guess they allow for reservations. Beer was a bit tepid but crisps were good.

A friend knew this pub and brought me and a couple of mates here for some pints. Definitely a very good choice, friendly and cosy. One of these places you have to visit when around. We´ll be back!
