“drinks only”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

A taxi driver recommended this place for pre-theatre drinks. Thank you!! the atmosphere was buzzing and never been to a PUB which served such good quality wine. The bar staff really knew their stuff and remembered our order on more than one visit to the bar including after we had been to the theatre and returned nearly three hours later. Super place well worth a visit.

“Proper pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

A pub for people who take their beer seriously. Always seems to be busy, which is hardly surprising, I recommend the Harvey's bitter, which is not easy to find outside of Sussex.

“No wonder it was the CAMRA pub of the year.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

I popped in on a Saturday afternoon with 17 friends. Unusually it wasn't standing room only, well, it was after we arrived! Once again, a great selection of beers and knowledgeable staff.

If you want an excellent pint of real ale or real cider, you must try this place.

“A London gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

This quaint little Covent Garden pub serves at least 8 different real ales, always well kept and served with a smile. The Harp is the only London pub to have been voted CAMRA national pub of the year (in 2011); not without reason.
