The Lamb & Flag is the oldest pub in Covent Garden, a truly traditional British pub with low beams, wooden panelling and bare pine floors. Its smoke filled bar becomes extremely busy, but there is a restaurant and another bar upstairs which deals quite well with the overflow. It caters especially for whisky lovers. Bar food and a selection of beers are also served. They also have a live Jazz band every Sunday between 7.30pm and 10.30pm. Outside seating is provided in the garden.

Tucked away in a Covent Garden backstreet - Rose Street off Floral Street (noticing a theme here?!) - this is your quintessential London / English boozer! I'd been meaning to try this pub out for years and when Mama P visited today, and had read about it being one of THE London boozers to try out, we decided it was time to try it out!
This is one of the most historic pubs in town, dating back...more
I am one of the only people I know who doesn't care for this place. Really at all, but it hasn't done anything horribly offensive to me so it still gets three stars.
It's cute from the outside and tucked down a side street. That's about where my fondness of this place ends. It's cute on the inside, too, despite me not wanting to stick around.
It fails for me for the following reasons:...more
One of the best historic pubs in London's west end. They serve several real (cask) ales. It's a nice retreat from the tourist places surrounding Covent Garden. The bar has limited seating, so be sure to check out the upstairs bar which has additional room. They serve lunch and do the Sunday roast too. Nice staff and good crowd.more
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. And if you're lucky enough to get a window table in the upstairs dining room, you can sit and watch...more
Another favourite pub in the West End tucked away at the back of Covent Garden. You have to know where it is which maybe explains why it manages to keep more of a special identity in both character and customers.
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.
