Built in 1787, this pub was thought to be named after the puppet show performances that took place in the nearby piazza for the children of flower-sellers - Covent Garden originally being a flower market. This is a listed building and retains much of the original brick and stonework. It's known as being one of the very few buildings in the area that escaped bomb damage during the blitz.
This pub is 'world famous' and is located facing the west piazza and from this our balcony guests have the best view to watch the street performers.
As a Taylor Walker pub, we are proud to offer freshly prepared British pub food and high quality drinks. With experienced and friendly staff, whether you are a cask ale fan, love a chilled glass of white wine or a freshly ground cup of coffee, we will serve you in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
Join us for a classic British dish such as hand battered cod, chips and mushy or garden peas, a juicy rump steak burger and chips or a roast of the day seven days a week. Our pub food is freshly prepared and includes all your favourites. We also offer a range of sandwiches and jacket potatoes, all served by our welcoming and friendly team.

Well located with a small balcony giving some outside space. Good vibe with friendly staff just not very many... Only bother if you are desperate and the sun is shining as there is many better places...more
Got myself intentionally a bit lost on a recent trip to London. Wound up at Covent Gardens and wandered into Punch & Judy hoping for a good pint and "The Best Fish & Chips in the City?" as the sign outside the dining room said--question mark and all. Didn't really work out for me.
I entered the dining room downstairs as directed by the signs. There was a stool free, so I grabbed that and sat...more
Punch & Judy's looks to be a memorable spot for nightly outings with friends for some drinks! I happened to come in on the afternoon, where the action was a little less lively. That said, the cider glass that I ordered was HUGE and delicious!!
Everything that was ordered (sandwiches, soups, etc.) was served in decent portions and actually good food!
The server here was friendly too,...more
We had our first meal here. A place that can't get even the fish and chip right. I guess we weren't so lucky when it comes to our first meal in London. The girl that took our order didn't really understand English (no offense). I asked for hot water and she thought I said wi-fi. Eh...ok lady. So I repeated, hot water. And she wasn't able to understand what that was. Never mind. She...more
