Lamb & Flag


A historic pub in London's vibrant Covent Garden, the Lamb & Flag was a favourite watering hole of Charles Dickens. Retaining its old-world charm, the pub serves great food, excellent real ale and features in practically every London guide book ever written. The diverse Lamb & Flag menu is created from fresh, local produce and features authentic, traditional English pub cooking.

Great pub on a side street, with nice alley cut-through for quick escapes. Good selection of ales, and great location in this part of town. Apparently this place was formerly known as "The Bucket of Blood"more

After reading the reviews on here I changed a reservation at another pub to come here instead. Highly disappointing both the service, which was incredibly slow at not even a busy time and the food.

I ordered the Roast dinner, awful!!!! The roast potatoes were so overcooked I would have broke a tooth. I ended up with chips? No gravy, barely any veg. Really terrible. I was with 4 friends whose...more

It's comforting to come across pubs like the Lamb & Flag where time seems to stand still while the world around you seems to be changing at a dizzying pace. This used to be one of my regular hangouts when I worked in Central London a couple of decades ago ... and it still seems to be a favourite with media types - who else can afford to enjoy the sunshine and a pint on a Friday afternoon?!...more

Lamb & Flag was such a cool place! The bartenders were super accomodating (luckily we went during lunch where they had a bit more time) in explaining to me why beer in the UK is sometimes warm, and helping recommend me some good beers that they had.

I had a few different Fullers, of course, a delicious Steak Ale Pie as well. Definitely an old feel to this, and I enjoyed y time there.more

Debbie was spot on fantastic!

We made our way upstairs for some lunch of fish and chips, pot pie special, and ham wrapped chicken.

The fish was phenomenal, golden brown, and fresh.

The pot pies were savory and tasty to the extreme.

The ham wrapped chicken was something to remember.

I'd highly recommend this place! We'll be back!more
