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.

Nice place in central London. Great for cask. Gets absolutely rammed when all the suits finish work.

Very freindly staff and a great atmosphere. Was there on a Thuesday night and the place was full. A nice selection on tap and good advice from the folks behind the bar. Definately a place to head to.

We went on a Thursday afternoon. First floor looked small because a lot of people were up in the entrance, but thereís also some room upstairs. A bit loud on first floor, but not problematic. Second floor is very calm. Decoration is ďtypicalĒ. Front entrance is beautiful. Selection is good, but certainly not as extensive as in the Craft Beer Co. pubs. Price were very goodÖ 1,75 GDP for a half glass of Dark Star Hophead. A nice pub to visit. I wouldnít be a regular because of the ďlimitedĒ selection the ambiance, but itís worth a visit.

I visited this pub early in the morning, but i was not alone. Good selection of cask ales, laid back ambience, the service was top notch, will definately visit this place again. Recommended +

We have been to this cracking pub on many occasions, not sure why it has taken so long to rate it. There is a long, narrow bar downstairs with more seating upstairs, past the Gents. We love getting installed by the large opening windows at the front, but sometimes it is so packed the only place to drink is the passageway at the back. There are drawings and paintings of ex customers and visitors. It has a great feel to it, friendly and welcoming despite itís popularity. The beer range is changing and excellent. Top notch.

Fantastic long standing good beer pub. Mostly quality British stuff from cask, old school. Large and well chosen selection. Sadly given rather convenient location gets stupidly busy, especially after work.

Crowded from when it opens until it closes! Unbearably so in the evening rush. But an excellent selection of ales (and ciders), from old favourites like Harveys and Dark Star (always on) to new London micro breweries such as Portobello, Windsor&Eton, etc. A must visit if in the area.

One of my favourite London pubs. Very busy, but good atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff, superb, ever changing beer selection.

Here on a Friday. Bloody busy! Grabbing a few beers while the missus gets a hair cut. Love the absolute shit loads of keg labels hanging up around the bar. Service was very efficient considering how busy they were. Great place if you want Dark Star beers. Token Kernel beer on too which is always good. Very well priced. £3.50 for two halves is very good considering what I have experienced elsewhere throughout London. Great place
