Iíve been going to The Harp for about the past 5 years now. A stones throw from my office, this has been our watering hole throughout and imagine that Iíve probably paid the monthly bills on this place alone the amount I drink here. One of the better freehouse pubs in central London which has an extremely healthy, rapidly changing range of cask, hand pumped ales on tap, especially when considering the size of the actual bar. Extremely friendly staff, the pub itself is very cramped and I think that in 5 years Iíve sat down only a hand-full of times. In summer it is pleasant to drink either in the alley behind or out front. Regular appearances by Dark Star and Twickenham ales make this worth coming for as well as a small fridge which has Kernel and (as a Somerset lad) one of the best Cider ranges available that Iíve found. That being said, sometimes the beer isnít kept fantastically and can often taste a bit off.

Brilliant place, great atmosphere. More than decent draught selection. The difference between downstairs and upstairs is striking. Visited during RBESG 2014. Thanks for showing us this place, Ruth!

A former national pub of the year when it was, in my opinion, not the best in London. This is tiny, the beer range has improved and is worth the couple of minute stroll from Charing Cross. Dark Star beer featured heavily but a few guests too. Beer I had in good nick. Worth a look as handy for The pigeons in Trafalgar Square. Gets really busy in the post work rush and youíll likely fight your way to the bar and drink on the street

Seemingly busy at all times, slightly better chance of a seat upstairs. Good focus on the beer in terms of selection, rotation and condition. Almost guaranteed to try something new. On my first visit a couple of years ago there were mice, which sort of added to the ambiance in a way...

Great pub. Buzzing with early evening drinkers. 15 ales on hand pump none if the usual suspects service amazingly fast considering how busy it was.

Nice pub with excellent service and good selection of keg and cask ales. Pretty busy but not hectic or noisy. Wanted to return after dinner from the excellent tapas bar opposite of Harp but they had to close due to a power outage. Bad luck.

Visited early on Saturday as part of a crawl round Covent Garden and nearby on 16/8/14. The Harp oozes character and is possibly the best pub in London if you get there before the crowds and sit by the big window at the front. Loved the "football free zone" posters. Great service and a good selection of cask beers and the odd keg. I read with consternation that Fullers have bought the pub though as Fullers beers are very mediocre compared with the Dark Star and other beers currently on offer in the Harp

A very crowded long bar with a quieter room upstairs. Service is surprisingly good for the amount of people around. Beers are decent, but nothing exciting, it must be said thought, they know how to take care of casks. The best pours so far.

A lovely traditional little pub just off the Strand and close to Trafalgar Square. The Harp has long been known for its well-kept beer and good range so there was much consternation when it was announced recently that the longstanding landlady was selling up. We visited less than a week after it was taken over by Fullerís and Iím happy to report that the new manager told us the only change was that two Fullerís taps had been installed but the rest would continue to feature interesting beers from other breweries. The beer was, as before, in excellent condition. It can get very crowded because itís right in the heart of the tourist area and the bar is quite small but thereís another comfortable room upstairs which seems to be less well used.
