At 400 years, the oldest pub in Covent Garden has hardly changed over the years and is proud of its heritage. A truely traditional English pub.

Love this pub. The interior has not been messed about and downstairs is full of people simply enjoying a drink. Most other pubs we went to in the area were too focused on pub food or TV screens.More

Formerly "The Bucket O' Blood" because of it's distant bareknuckle history, this pub is a diamond. A true London boozer that remains faithful to its roots. If you can find it, go, you will not be disappointed!
