10th Apr 2012 - Its actually in an alley off the strand with very little to indicate it is there. It was in an alley which seems to have very little use except as a fire escape for the buildings on either side. This certainly kept the crowds away which is a good thing as this is a tiny cosy little pub and I hope it stays that way. Red paint work outside and a dark interior were just what a pub should be. Except for the TV's which were even distracting when I stood outside to enjoy the shade. Wipeout for f**ks sake and I couldn't keep my eyes off the screen. The beer was decent enough and it was a pretty relaxed atmosphere which considering the location was unbelievable. I like this pub and will definitely stop again. Maybe I'll check the TV listings first so I can watch countdown. Be careful going to the loo because as I headed down the stairs I could only see the ladies but thought what the hey, then as i neared the door the stairs split in two and the gents appeared and I made a loud ahhhhhh upon release as I was busting. Freaked out the guy pissing next to me but boy did it feel good. Visit It if your in the area.

14th May 2006 - Very well hidden pub, down an alley on the south side of Covent Garden. In 1897 a stagehand from the nearby Adelphi murdered the actor, William Terris in the alley. Nell Gywnne was a local orange seller, who became an actress and Charles II's lover. It's a tiny pub really, which is why people spill outside, but has bags of character with its dark interior and loads of nic nacs on display. Definitely worth a visit.
