We came to this pub just before a theatre show and only had 20 mins until the start time so needed to have a quick bite. We ordered 2 portions of chips and a round of drinks and made it clear to the staff that we were in a hurry. The drinks and food were delivered to our table quicker than we expected. The pub also had a great atmosphere too and good location right next to covent garden. Would recommend this pub for a quick bite and drink :)

Popped in for a drink after War Horse. Plenty of seating and easy to get service at the bar. There were some groups of locals but most of the people there seemed to be tourists.

The food is typical pub grub nothing fancy but tasty and priced accordingly for the area. The service was the real bonus. Staff who seemed to care and seemed to be having fun at the same time.

We walked up to the bar and stood waiting to be served next to a lady clutching her purse and a £10 note, already looking impatient. 2 members of bar staff were already serving drinks and at least 2 members of bar staff looked to be waiting to serve customers wanting to order food but I couldn't work out why at least one of them didn't approach the people waiting for drinks - maybe their conversation was too interesting?! We waited 5 minutes then left to find another pub with better service.
