Visited on a Saturday night after enjoying the Fawlty Towers experience at the nearby Amba Hotel. Had a few pints of the Dark Star American Pale Ale which was faultless. Superb! Proper pub with great atmosphere.

Nice traditional pub with an excellent selection of real ales. Prices not too high for central London.

The place may have some good beers but it was too packed out with just a few people - it's too small! There were people outside which is ok when the sun was shining but just a few minutes later it started to rain. We moved to The Chandos Pub just along the street where there was more room and...

Benny, Thanks for taking the time out to give us a review, unfortunately there is not a lot we can do about the size of our pub. Chando's is alright so I am glad you had a good time in the end. Cheers, Monty More

Heard great things about this pub so tried it out. Decent selection of beers if not a bit too traditional. Also good choice of ciders. In an easy location to find but very busy inside. Bottle selection poor. Went out back which was nice to have an outside area in central, hidden away from the busy roads. There was a... More

Great beer selection, including a number of real ales. Constantly changing beers, within 2 days there were different beers on tap. Gets a great local turnout which in my book means a great place to try! We went the 1st time due to proximity & TA reviews. We returned a 2nd time because we enjoyed it so much!

The Harp is both traditional, serving fine pub grub, and non-traditional, with two stories and off-beat but inviting decor. Good food, and a good beer selection too.

Located in London’s famous Covent Garden area, the pub makes a great base from which to explore some of London’s highlights. Trafalgar Square is just round the corner, while the bright lights of the West End beckon nearby too.

Incredibly busy little bar, with almost always twice as many people outside as inside. Real ales and ciders from a bar that's won London bar of the year at least once. Nice friendly atmosphere, and reasonable prices. Hidden gem! Recommend a visit!

If you want to drink in a traditional English pub setting, but you don't want boring malty beer, then The Harp probably has a few things on tap for you. Not a modern craft beer pub, they still will have some good stuff on tap and have been reconginzed multiple times as London pub of the year from the Campaign... More
