If you want somewhere near Covent Garden that does good food for reasonable money then I would recommend this Irish Bar. Good beer and friendly service. Like I said a good find.

Thought we'd try this place as all the other pubs were very busy. Glad they were, this turn out to be a good place for food & drink. Although there were quite a few people utside, inside there were plenty of tables. Sit down, and over comes the waitress & takes your order, pay her when she comes back with the drinks (she even remembered the next day, what we had previously, "same again?". Rubgy was on TV Friday, and Saturday afternoon, but Football (German Bundesliga) on Saturday night, followed by music till 1am. We found the staff friendly, and the food was very good. Not too pricey considering location, right on the Drury lane, Long Acre junction. If youre in the area, i would recommend this, but perhaps just after the lunch rush time & before /after 5pm, during the week.

The atmosphere on this balmy day was very conducive to to a leisurely lunch, with a wonderful cuppa tea to finish, at very reasonable prices. Thanks to the staff who made the visit worthwhile on my birthday.

Another successful jaunt down to London and we ate at Philomena's a couple of times.

This is a sports bar selling decent pub grub. It is decent pub food and you wont be disappointed. We have been in here several time over the years and are always treated with a smile and friendly chat.
