Lamb & Flag

33 Rose St.
Covent Garden
London, England, WC2E 9EB, United Kingdom
TEL: 44-20-7497-9504

In 1679, a man attacked John Dryden in this tiny pub’s alleyway for writing scurrilous verses about one of Charles II’s mistresses. These days, drinkers spill out into the alley during summertime; during winter, they cozy up around the working fireplaces and leaded-glass windows. On tap are real ales from small independent breweries such as Greene King IPA, plus suds from larger breweries. Creaky, unpretentious wooden interiors (unchanged for decades) are a perfect antidote to touristy Covent Garden market.

Insider Tip:

Welcoming bartenders take orders for hearty English pub grub—roast dinners, pies, and fish and chips.
