The area where the Sussex pub is situated has been a recognised thoroughfare since Saxon times. In Roman times this area also connected Westminster to the City of London. During the reign of King John (1199-1216) Long Acre was recorded as the northern boundary of the Covent Garden of the monks of St. Peter's Abbey. Over the years the area has been home to royalty, cartwrights and fruiterers in addition to famous names such as Nicholas Stone the sculptor, Oliver Cromwell and John Dryden. Today the area is still a bustling hub of activity connecting Covent Garden to Leicester Square.
Our range of drinks includes cask ale and an extensive wine list as well as a great range of soft drinks and coffees.
With fabulous British food to accompany our drinks, you can relax at this Taylor Walker pub over classics such as hand battered cod, chips and mushy or garden peas, traditional British recipe bangers & mash or a roast of the day seven days a week. Our pub food is freshly prepared and includes all your British favourites. We also offer a range of sandwiches and jacket potatoes.
We are delighted to welcome you at Taylor Walker and assure you of friendly service in a relaxing British pub with a welcoming atmosphere.
The downstairs bar with a capacity of up to 100 is available to hire for private parties and functions.

We stopped through this pub around 8:30 pm on a Friday night. Very popular place. Very crowded with people from all places.

The sussex is a nice pub that has the beers that you like and the atmosphere for a nice laid back evening. It's very spacious and has outdoor, indoor and underground seating which is convenient since it can get very packed. All in all this pub is a very nice way to start off the evening, or finish the evening if your just looking for a nice place to pop a seat and have a nice beer.more
