Popped in for a pint or three! not at all bad, friendly crowd, great beer. I shall visit again !

Small room pub but enough bar space for six hand pumps.
Good choice of beer including Bateman's Black and White, Ilkely's Mary Jane (very nice) and Gadds Dr Sunshine.
Two quid for half a pint seemed a bit steep.

Not great, but not awful. My opinion is slightly clouded by the individual who stood at the bar with a rucksack, who got the hump when I tried to squeeze by, and then insisted in leaning into the me all the while I was waiting to be served. Beer was good though - if you like the real stuff. For where it is, you could do worse.

Nice pint of American Pale Ale and the bar maid even topped the pint up with no gripes. All clientele were tourists (like ourselves!) and seemed a popular place to meet up after a hard days graft at the shops!
Must be the only place that can only offer Oyster Bay as the default Sav Blanc (the Chilean variety had run out!) but the price didn't seem too steep.

I was pleasantly surprised for a bar in a touristy place.

If you�re in a position where you have to drink in Covent Garden rather than it being your ideal location, this pub is a good choice to make if you need some respite from the usual annoyances that tourist central offers.

The service can be slightly surly, yet efficient all the same. And I guess, unless you�ve come into town for insightful discourse with the bar staff, I�m not sure it�s too much of an issue.
