The HarpThe Harp, a welcoming bar in Covent Garden, is a traditional pub where the emphasis is firmly on real ale - earning it CAMRA's National Pub of the Year in 2011 - with a great selection of beers served from 10 hand pumps on the bar. The buzzing downstairs bar with its collection of old Victorian portraits and beautiful harp motif coloured glass windows at the front. The only downside of this perfect little place is its popularity and small size which mean it can be heaving in the evening. So seek out the calmer upstairs room with its comfortable chairs if you want to relax and enjoy a more intimate atmosphere. One of the best pubs in London and highly recommended.
