GBG entry, so I was here to get my tick.

A locals pub in the heart of Covent Garden - complete with dog walkers.


Irish pub with plenty of whiskies, "the best Guinness in London" and a decent pint of Tribute.

I always try to find time to visit this little diamond; like many of my favourites it is small, friendly & seemingly out of place in its inner city location. A couple of bantering locals, an efficient & equally bantering bar person & a great pint of Tribute (4.10) made for an enjoyable half hour.

I stumbled across the C&H after a night at the Opera House, I was only looking for a quick nightcap and my expectations were low. However what a little gem was uncovered. Whilst waiting for my Guinness to be poured properly, the landlord, Jimmy was very engaging and very chatty. The Guinness was as good as Jimmy promised. For a 73 year old he was full of life and good banter. I had to stay for another which again was poured perfectly by Sean and delivered to my spot in the corner. Sean had a great customer service ethic about him and I wasnt surprised to learn he is Jimmy's son. The pub is not "Oirish" but is a small but perfectly formed proper pub run by a proper landlord who happens to be Irish. The Coach has now overtaken Bradleys as my favourite "wee" pub. The physical size of the bar and the limited amount of real ales will disappoint some but I feel the service and ambience make it an oasis in a renowned desert (tourist) area and I will certainly be returning especially as Jimmy stocks the world's greatest crisps : Tayto

Great little place with top notch Guinness. However, I cannot say the same for the nobs at the bar who seemed to regard the whole place as their own and refused to get the hell out of the way for people looking for a drink. Would def go back though.

Called in yesterday mid afternoon, astounded to find a proper friendly local pub in the midst of all the tourist traps of the area. Highly recommended.
