After only coming in for a drink I glad to see that they had both the Meantime London Pale ale and Camden Hells on Draft, always a winner! I later made my way upstairs to be shown a great menu, went for the Calamari, followed...More

This is another great pub in Covent Garden. It is very close to Covent Garden tube station and is opposite the Nag's Head. I found the service to be excellent and friendly, and the ale delightful. Couple this with a fantastic variety of customers including...More

After climbing 193 steps up from the platform of Covent Garden Tube Station, we had to climb another 19 steps to the first floor dining room of this pub. To go to the toilet in the basement one had to go down those 19 plus...More

Have been there about 10 years ago. The food and beer were great, or must have been really hungry on that day. Visited shortly a few days ago. The food was still good (beef and mushroom pie and my friend really liked his fish and...More

Sarah G, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to The White Lion, James St!
