This was one of our favorite meals in London. We were seated right away and the service was wonderful. Everyone was friendly and generous with suggestions. English food gets a bad rap, but honestly, you cannot beat a simple pie and mashed potatoes, and this one was delicious. Stop here if you're in Covent Garden! more

I found this pub in a book with the name: A pub for every occasion and because it was near to covent garden we planned to go lunch in here.

It is in one of those lovely side-roads where more people walk on the road then there will be cars driving.

Solid! Classical 400+year pub that should be on everyone's pub list when visiting London!

Our Order: two pints of London's Finest.

Environment: 400+year old pub with an amazing entrance on both sides (small alley with a 5' clearance or a beautiful side street entrance). The pub is downstairs and the food is upstairs.

Verdict: the staff was super friendly, the place oozed with a feeling of... more
