An historic pub in London's vibrant Covent Garden, Lamb & Flag was a favourite watering hole of Charles Dickens.

It's pretty small inside and has that appealing slight wonkiness of an old pub that's been around for hundreds of years although probably morphed slightly over time.
Upon my arrival in London, I asked my cab driver where I could get the best ploughman's lunch. He suggested I try the Lamb and Flag, a 17th century pub hidden in a Convent Garden alleyway. He was right. The ploughman's was reasonably priced, delicious & just the thing to satisfy my fix.
