Top 5 Pubs in Covent Garden

Covent Garden is steeped in history, and so are the pubs that reside here. From pre-World War establishments to rebuilt beauties, there’s a pub for almost everyone in the area. Grab a pint and feast your eyes on the interesting architecture. Pubs not your thing? Check out the rest of Covent Garden!

Punch & Judy: The Punch & Judy is full of history, from the puppet play that gave the pub its name to the original brickwork that survived the blitz. You can even take your drink up to watch the street performers from the balcony.

Lamb & Flag: The Lamb & Flag is cozy, family friendly, and full of literary history. Charles Dickens used to be a regular here, so grab a pint and bask in the history on what has been a pub site since 1772.

Nell of Old Drury: Close to many of the great theatres in Covent Garden, Nell of Old Drury is yet another great historical pub in the area. So if you’re soaking up the nearby culture, why not grab a post-theatre drink?

White Lion Pub: Full of great pub food and real ales, the White Lion Pub is a popular spot for locals in the area, from office workers to musicians at the Royal Opera House. The fantastic architecture will welcome you in for a pint, no matter where you’re from.

Marquess of Anglesey: These premises have been licensed since 1663 and offer great pub food and cask ales. The building had to be mostly rebuilt after bomb damage during WWII, and some shrapnel damage is still visible!
