If you like a proper pub, with excellent beer, and very friendly staff even though you only go a couple of times a year when you are in London (yes, that's you Sarah) how could you not love this place? Please, please Fullers, keep it just as it is!

If you're looking to try lots of local ales then come here. It's a very well contained, traditional pub with upstairs seating (very comfortable leather seats).

There is nothing like visiting The Harp, it has become a tradition. I am a huge cider fan, but not the sweet stuff - the rel stuff! You will not leave The Harp diappointed in that regard. Try the ones in the carton, not on tap. Beware, it's strong... 😊

Went here for some drinks. Good selection of ales on draught. It was very busy, non the less plenty of staff on so it didnt take long to get served. Great atmosphere.

A lovely pub in central London and was ideal for pre theatre drinks. The pub serves a number of fine cask ales that my friends thoroughly enjoyed. I'm more a cider man myself and the Cornish Orchard cider on draft was superb. Well worth the visit.
