We love this London pub; definitely one of our favourites with a terrific choice of real ales. We enjoyed the Dark Star ales on offer on our recent visit. Also popped in one lunchtime and enjoyed their pork pies. Friendly staff, interesting conversations. Recommended.

Lovely little pub, fantastic beer, I would thoroughly recommend the Dark Star "American pale Ale" a wonderful beer. My one, slight, criticism is that even mountain goats have trouble scaling the stairs to the toilet

Fairly small but very cozy and friendly pub. Don't expect to find a place to sit (though you might be lucky) but it is still with visiting (a lot of locals think so as well).

Interestingly strange pub resembling a long corridor - open both ends. Good décor and drinks. Full of character and characters. Another great drop in offering quality not size. Good loos. Definitely recommended.

My husband and I just visited London for the first time last week. We love the city, but had been warned about not being able to find good beer. We know that we're beer snobs from the states, but when we found this place it...More

A blissfully traditional place with great beer and good old conversation, also well known for our traditional ciders and Perries from all around the country. Located in London’s famous Covent Garden area, The Harp is a great example of a traditional British ale house.
