Visited for lunch on Saturday whilst in a London. Fantastic looking pub from the outside and we were not disappointed when we went in. Great service from very friendly staff. Lunch was great value and quality polished off with some lovey drinks! Would highly recommend!

I used to work just down the street, so this used to be a regular and I was happy to try it out again. The menu is pretty limited compared to what I remember, but went for the steak sandwich. It was decent, though you...More

This place is normally quiet but near Christmas is an exception - everywhere busy in London! But still full of character and friendly staff even when stretched

Maybe it was a bad day, but the 'Stilton steak on ciabatta' had no sign of cheese, and the ciabatta was too tough to cut. The side order of chips was seriously over-salted. The bannoffee cheesecake was still frozen solid.

One of Covent Garden's best pubs, The Round House is a traditional beer-house that prides itself on an excellent menu and one of the finest ranges of real ales, bottles and foreign beers in the West End. This is traditional pub-keeping at its finest.
