Arriving in the middle of the lunch rush I was lucky to find a vacant table in this very charming pub heavily decorated with Victoriana bric-a-brac. Intersting selection of Brodie’s and guest beers. The food looked very tempting, so I’ll have a meal here next time.

Visited on 10th March 2017. Nice little pub a couple of minutes down the road from CBC Covent Garden. It’s a dark single room, bar on the left with a L-Shaped area for seating around the bar. Nice dark, wood panel interior and lots of traditional features. Place was pretty busy on my arrival with the POETS day office gang in situ so it provided a nice buzz to the place. 4 keg beers from Brodies plus 4 on cask and a couple of guests on tap. A really good mix and I picked up a new Brodies keg beer. Condition was good and at £1.80 for a half the price was competitive. Service was prompt. Nice pub and one I would recommend.

Traditional pub. Small and dark, the food was ok. I had trouble finding a chair. Just a handful of beers on tap, but solid beers none the less.

Nice classic old style British pub. Not many but a couple of solid beers on tap. Quite liked the atmosphere in there.

Old fashioned pub with dark brown interior. Five cask ales including three from Brodies on at my visit. You might as well pop in if you’re nearby, but not worth going out of your for.

Very red inside, mostly male crowd, at least there was no football on (contrast with the Old Coffee House). The three brodies ales on cask were in good nick. Staff were fairly friendly. Worth a visit if in the area.

Classic old style english pub with a dark and interesting interior. Five casks from Brodies when I visited. About ten taps with not so exciting beers. Good service on a slow monday early afternoon. Worth a visit.

Traditional pub not too far from the heart of Covent Garden. Small, dark and still hard to find a seat, the Cross Keys offers three Brodie’s ales along with a guest (Windsor & Eton on my visit). A further fifth handpump was out of action. It’s not perfect - the beer was too warm for my taste and some craft keg wouldn’t go amiss - but it’s one of the few oases of sanity in the poseur-happy world of Covent Garden. I’ll be certain to return.

Visited Saturday as part of a crawl round Covent Garden and nearby on 16/8/14. It’s a bit dark inside but actually a nice proper pub with excellent value hot meals. 4 Brodies beers on, all good.

Yet another live rating Sat’19th April 2014. I think we’ve been here before with Ian a few years ago. A dark pub long narrow pub with every inch of wall space covered with pictures, stuffed fish on display and fairy lights around the mirror at the rear. Mmh.... a very dubious music selection with Starship reminding us that they ’built this city on rock and roll’. Beer choice is Brodies Citra, Bethnal Green, Kiwi and a Redemption and one other. Friendly enough place, busy down to earth boozer. I wouldn’t want to have to dust the clutter in here. Beers in good nick.
