London Pub Named Pub of the Year

Discussion in 'Europe' started by NileGuide, Feb 16, 2011.  |  Print Topic

  1. The Harp, long time favorite pub in the heart of London, has been named Campaign for Real Ale’s 2010/2011 Pub of the Year. For 13 years publican Bridget Welsh has been pumping cask ales to locals and visitors. Her consistent friendly service and dedication to dispensing only the purist of ales earned her the prestigious honor.
    Despite being situated between the tourist hubs of Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden, The Harp remains truly authentic. The toasty space with Victorian decor is always bustling, patrons often spill out onto the pavement outside.
    Along with the selection of 8 ales on offer, be sure to sample the local sourced, premium sausages.

    Went there when I was last in London in the summer of 2009. A great place. I usually am in such a hurry to get to the Porterhouse I don't pay attention to other nearby pubs. Must have walked by the Harp a dozen times before I went in.
