Crown & Anchor
Spread across two floors, this charming traditional-style pub has been a mainstay of Covent Garden since the early 1900s. It offers a mix of Continental lager, cask-conditioned ale and an enviable London gin selection alongside a pleasingly classic menu. Dishes like battered cod and hand-cut chips, sausages and homemade herby mash with lashings of onion chutney gravy, and steak and ale pot pie are legendary classics. There are also homemade burgers with various toppings, sandwiches and snacks, including nachos, mozzarella sticks and a meze board. Children can choose from the kid’s section of the menu so they don’t have to miss out on the fun.
Downstairs is the ideal place to meet friends or colleagues for drinks and nibbles, while upstairs is great for larger groups of diners and is a relaxed space with an extra bar open during the evening. The drinks list proudly showcases London gins, including Sipsmith, Portobello Road and 7 Dials, as well as a variety of wine and cask-conditioned ales. With a capacity of up to 60 guests, all kinds of functions can be catered for in the upstairs space – just ask for details and the team will ensure your event runs smoothly from start to finish.
