Nice place with a lot of beers changing over weeks. One of the longest open places around. I can highly recommend.

Packed with people at lunch time. Lovely atmosphere! Quieter upstairs, where I could finish my plain sausages and rest my wary legs. Good selection of fine ales, IPA’s and a lot more.
This is the quintesential London public house!
Good and friendly service here!
Recommended for those looking for the real and historic London.

Called at this pub whilst walking through London. We had visited before and we wanted to take our friends. This is a traditional English pub with an excellent choice of ales. It has friendly and helpful staff and we were quite pleased that we could actually go upstairs. It is usually heaving with people which says everything. We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food.

An absolute gem. Great selection of beers and ciders. Gets crowded at times, as you would expect from such a proper, decent London boozer in central London. Bridie knew how to run and organise a pub, please Fullers don't change it.

Many thanks Bob for your 5/5 review rating and your kind words about how we are still running the pub just like it was in the days when Binnie had the pub, over 6 years ago now, and I intend to continue to be a good custodian of The Harp whilst I'm here.

3 visits in our 3 day stay in London. Amazing atmosphere, pure chatter, and excellent beer. Most drinking partners are local but somehow you feel most welcomed; the staff helps a lot too. Besides, the area where the pub stands, is great. Do not miss. Cheers
