Pub in Covent Garden, near Aldwych.
Note that (unusually for these days) they close in the afternoon, between 3pm and 5pm (except on Saturdays). They also don't open at all on Sundays.
They don't do any food at all, but according to a sign seen outside in November 2008 you're welcome to bring your own.
Upstairs room is available for hire, according to the 2009 Good Beer Guide (and there's no charge for this, and it can hold 50 people, according to their website).
bob visited on a Thursday evening in August 2014. The downstairs bar is quite small but there were plenty of seats upstairs. Deuchars IPA (£3.60) and Adnam's Broadside were available. The Deuchars was fine. A packet of crisps was 90p.
The upstairs room has lots of play posters on the walls.
They provide an interval drinks service where you can preorder drinks to be ready for the interval of the play that will be on across the road.
Accessibility: Step up to get in. Level to the toilets.
