I took two very pub-fussy friends here as a change from our usual venue. We enjoyed it very much and they both agreed we'll be back. Excellent Hophead, friendly service and reasonable prices, in an classic English pub environment.

Once again we made a beeline for The Harp on our latest visit to London for two evenings of opera at ENO - in fact we managed to drop in for drinks on 3 separate occasions over the 2 days. I must admit to being a little concerned to have read about the recent takeover by Fullers (as I have... More

Great little boozer, had done some research on real ale pubs before going down to London for my boyfriends birthday as didn't want to end up at chain pubs with all the other tourists & what a find! Had very friendly, helpful staff, a nice atmosphere & great choice of real ales & cider!

I have visited The Harp several times since if was taken over by Fullers. So far it is encouraging to see little has changed apart from a couple of Fullers beers appearing (understandably). I hope this approach continues ... I am VERY fond of The Harp. For years The Harp has been a must visit whenever I am in London... More

This was truly our favorite pub while we were in London. It was near to our hotel and it was so pretty on the outside with the flower boxes bursting with blooms. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great pub staying nearby. Made some great friends and enjoyed some wonderful beverages.

Our first visit to this wonderful pub since the retirement of the long serving landlady 'binnie' and I'm pleased to report that the pub is still just as good, the staff are all there, the real ale is as good as ever as is the ambiance. The only trace that the pub is now owned by Fullers is the one... More

What a lovely pub, visited on the way to a theatre matinee and have to say it was hard to drag ourselves away. The choice of real ales were amazing and the ones we sampled were in very good condition,will definitely visit again when in London

We visited The Harp with a couple of friends and found the upper room based on tripadvisor reviews. This is a really nice to place to hang out if there are places available. Nice atmosphere, good beer and ceiling fans... The recipe for a successful relaxed evening!

If you are a beer drinker this is the place for you. A short walk from Charing Cross Station. It is a small pub but has a wide selection of real ales and beers. You wont be disappointed especially if you are a member of CAMRA!

We stumbled on The Harp by choice when idly looking for a pub with a few real ales - it's probably got more than any other pub we've been in! And great atmosphere, pretty much an old-fashioned pub with plenty of chat, no music dominating everything, food available but definitely second place to the BEER! We returned the next day... More
