  • Visitor Information

Philomena's is an Irish themed bar and sports cafe on Great Queen Street, just two minutes walk from Covent Garden tube station. A great place to watch live sports - there's a great atmosphere when there's an Irish match or the Six Nations rugby is on - this bar on the site of an O'Neills pub is a family-owned business which now has a far more genuine Irish feel to it. The narrow twin-bar layout remains much the same but improvements have been made to the menu, which is reasonably priced and includes delicacies like bacon, cabbage and mash and Galway bay oysters. It also serves real ale from four handpumps, Guinness on tap, Tayto crisps and shows lots different sports on the many TV screens. Perfect for watching Leinster on the big screen above the fire with a pint of the black stuff in hand.
