Cosy interiors, over 200 craft brews and a menu of mouthwatering bites: Lowlander Grand Cafe is a brilliant quirky pub in Covent Garden. The Belgian-themed boozer is dishing up mussels, schnitzels and salads to keep you fuelled up as you sample some of the many hops on offer.

Another old timer to add to the ranks, the Lamb and Flag dates back to 1772 steeped with all the charm you could expect from a pub that was once a bare-knuckle fighting destination (true story). Staying true to quintessential British pubbing ventures, expect good pints, good foods and a great atmosphere. 

The Harp

Found on Chandos Street, The Harp is a blast of the Victorian past with a contemporary approach to its beer offerings. A place where you'll find real ale, real cider and real conversation, people flock to this Covent Garden boozer for their after work refuge or a weekend session. It's humbly sized but honest and homely.
