From Leicester Square: Head up Charing Cross Road until you get to Cambridge Circus, junction with Shaftesbury Avenue. Turn right into Shaftesbury Avenue and the pub is just around the corner on the right. From Tottenham Court Road: Take the Charing Cross Road exit (mind the junkies) and head down Charing Cross Road to Cambridge Circus. You should be able to see the pub as you approach Shaftesbury Avenue - it's just across the road.
