Usually overcrowded, the ground floor bar in this pub is rarely worth the effort in our opinion, unless you like sharp elbows or are looking for a fight. But the first floor room is a welcome and surprising exception and worth seeking out - when it's open. We've been in the upstairs bar when it's been practically deserted and the ground floor has had lager louts spilling into Charing Cross road. When it's open, it's a welcome refuge from the insane crowds around Leicester Square and Covent Garden. It's got a fairly average selection of drink and pub grub, but the beer's usually well-kept. All in all, it's still a prime place to meet someone with its close proximity to Leicester Square tube, but not a place we'd recommend that you linger if you can't get into the upper bar.
