Great atmosphere on a Sunday night. An ad-hoc sing along with punters pulled from crowd to perform with regular musicians. Fabulous. Beer was great as well.

Clean and friendly, but a little too "busy" - as in tables are all very closely packed in and its a bit bright with tvs and such - more like a hotel lobby than a pub. More one for the tourists I think.

A nice, more traditional pub with a decent comfortable traditional interior with lots of pictures, mainly related to the local theatres.
Three handpumps on the bar , which were Youngs London Gold, Doombar and Abbotts during my vist and the London Gold was a well kept pint.

Three ales on nearly all the time, kept ok sometimes they haven't as fresh as I would like. Overall its a nice quiet lunchtime afterwork boozer, but I wouldn't spend an age in there!

I have been there several times on saturaday’s morning before a Donmar’s performances. At 12 o’clock is almost empty and I really enjoying the atmosphere. It’s always pack with locals in Fridays and Saturdays nights you don’t see to much tourist, great!.

A classical stylish pub atmosphere, with a staff has always been friendly and prices are more than reasonable.

A pub for Fullers to buy and save for the London drinker!
This pub really blew me away. I was impressed with the food served and the prices were just perfect. The staff spoke english well and dressed well and I found I enjoyed the atmosphere. It was traditional and cosy and also not too far from Leicester Square which was appropriate. However I have been here a few times and I was surprised once to see the manager being barked at by her boss....I assume it was her boss...but I don't see why. The pub was really well decorated and the displays were fantastic. I really did enjoy my time here and I will be coming here again and again.

This is a pretty decent pub that hasn’t changed much, if at all, since I knew it well in the 90s. The pictures on the wall testify to the theatreland pedigree of the area. They had Adnam’s bitter, Pride and Sharp’s Doom Bar on, and the Doom Bar tasted excellent – at £2.93 a pint. Fairly reasonably priced bar snacks on offer as well.

There is nothing very modern about this pub – no sofas or high stools/tables. This is a decent pub, in an area where decent pubs are not thick on the ground

Perfectly reasonable Covent Garden pub, less crowded than most. Three real ales, including a reasonable pint of The Rev. James (a rare excursion for Brains in London?).

I used to go here a few years back when there was an eccentric landlord who was keen on slapping (female) customers on the behind.There used to be lots of women in there but when I visited recently it was full of theatrical men and a bit off-putting.

Nice little spot to go for a drink, even better if you a seat outside. Nothing about it makes it stand out but equally nothing to put you off from visiting.

Had great weather for early April and sat outside with a pint of Guinness to watch the world go by. Great stop for a walk from the Museum to Trafalgar. Very interesting area. Nice atmosphere inside, but barmaid was a little "distant" and even in an empty bar I had to call her over for service at the bar. Nice spot, I'd give it a second go for sure.

Good pint of Charles Wells Bombardier and it was even possible to find a seat late on a Saturday night even though it was busy. Has a pleasant atmosphere and wouldn't hesitate to return.

A comfortable, solid and genuine pub with a cosy theatrical feel. Two genuine fireplaces, oodles of wood paneling, illuminated glass cabinets, a stained glass sky-light at the rear, and three cask ales: Pride, 6 Nations and Saracen. Soft background music. Nice. It doesn't say so, but the menu and beer range was typical T&J Bernard.

This WAS a great pub..good atmos, good tunes, good food!! UNTIL a few months ago.
The cool eceltic juke box has now gone!
The easy casual 'order food at the bar' service has gone (you now have inappropriate waiter service)
and the menu had changed for the worse.
Very dissapointed. used to go there 2-3 times a week. have never been back since it changed.

Great pub. One of the few in the West End that has the feel of a real local. Always has interesting guest beers though the pints can be a bit on the short side. Fantastic juke box with an eclectic range.

Have been their twice, first time was a Saturday and it was lovely, second time was last night (St Patrick's Day) and it was full of hideous Americans discussing how they love being 'Irish'.

What a nice boozer (bit like me!). Popped in on the off chance on a walk in the area and was suitably impressed. Will visit again.

used to drink there (over 4 years) - friendly staff and customers but expensive and it had a problem with pesky little fruit-flies.

Love this place. Very theatrical and has a lovely and very welcome open fire at the back in winter. Great stuff.Pretty good food too.

Pleasant pub, nicely hidden away. 2 real ales plus a guest beer which last night was Old Hooky.

Great pub. Good food Good beer Great location/atmosphere. If you see Twiggy(works on flower stall outside) buy him a pint of cider and he'll tell you about Harris!
