The Sun, Covent Garden
This is a fairly traditional pub in the heart of Theatreland - it doesn't get much more heart than Drury Lane. And amidst everything else that goes on in Covent Garden, this one's stayed pretty much the same as long as we can remember. There's nothing out of the ordinary about it, a pretty standard pub offering, all in all, with unremarkable beer on the taps and a smattering of tellies (currently showing sport, of course). Friendly enough, and we got a seat on our last visit. Not one we'll be going out of our way for, though.
