Coach & HorsesOccupying a prime location just off Covent Garden Piazza, this pub promises a hedonistic St Pat's Party purely on the basis of its location rather than any particular effort on the pub's behalf. Jovial folk will pile into the pub early on the day having feigned sickness and escaped the confines of their nearby offices. Many a discerning Guinness guzzler has enjoyed a fine pint of the black stuff in this pub and even more argue they serve the best Guinness in town.  Richly creamy, deliciously bitter and exquisitely smooth, they really do import it all the way from fair Dublin town. If Guinness isn't your favourite Irish tipple, revellers can still sample one of the 80-odd, mostly unheard of, Irish whiskeys behind the bar. We also recommend lining the stomach and gobbling down the chunky, stacked, piping hot Limerick ham sandwiches - they are delicious. Inside it's on the small side with only a mere clutch of stools for exhausted party people to rest their bottoms on. The decor is refreshingly unfussy, just a few theatre posters and a curious golfing theme adorn the walls. Anyway, it's not about the interior - it's about the best fresh, un-pasteurised Guinness in London. Yum.
