The Harp


This odd-shaped pub in Covent Garden is a specialist in craft beers and ales, offering a unique setting and knowledgeable staff to help you select the perfect tipple.

The traditional Fuller’s pub is loved by Londoners for its unique character. It's laid out over two narrow floors which are both deceptively large, and the walls are adorned with countless beer mats, paying homage to the thousands of guest beers that have graced this little pub.

The Harp is definitely a spot for beer connoisseurs, and the staff are more than happy to let you sample some of the 10 hand-pumped ales on offer before you make that vital decision.

My favorite place to kick back and relax in London. Quaint, homey, but sophisticated place. The feel and style of the place was really impressive. The best spots are upstairs and it's nice to go on a quiet afternoon and read a book or do work there. The bartenders were very friendly and willing to help you out if you don't know your way around drinks. By far my favorite cider was at the Harp.... more

Smaller, cramped interior with micro outdoor space for standing only. This little pub is a hidden gem with a casual vibe, lively crowd, and killer craft beer tap list. Even with only about 10 beers on tap, everything was well-curated and the kegs tasted super fresh. Bartenders were outgoing, knowledgeable, and pointed out some of their one-off, specialty kegs to me. Prices were a bit high at... more

After a full morning of sightseeing from Westminster to Trafalgar Square (in sub-freezing temperatures), my fiancée and I were ready for a place to warm up, rest our feet, and fill our tummies for lunchtime. A quick look at my London Yelp bookmarks showed that The Harp was right around the corner and seemed like the perfect pub for our midday needs.

I was looking for an afternoon pub stop, and found this gem. The Harp is a classic pub. A very narrow bar on the first floor leads to some precarious stairs in the back that take you to a quieter upstairs. The staff is friendly, the beer choices are excellent, and the view upstairs is pleasant. I am hoping to make it here again. more

The Harp is really really cool. Don't just read about it on Yelp - you have to experience its full glory firsthand. The pub is one of those tiny places that is almost impossible to find a seat. You're going to complain about it but love it at the same time. The cask selection is also endless - you will be more than satisfied with some nice cold beer and a good conversation here right off of... more
