Called in mid afternoon. The bar was extremely busy, but the staff worked very efficiently to get everyone served promptly. Good choice of beers and a good atmosphere, but be prepared to pay Covent Garden prices!

One of Covent Garden's best pubs, The Round House is a traditional beer-house that prides itself on an excellent menu and one of the finest ranges of real ales, bottles and foreign beers in the West End. This is traditional pub-keeping at its finest.
