I really like the market and the area, so I had quite high expectations about this place. It's a shame the outdoor area is SO dirty, full of rubbish on the floor. I know they can't control the behaviour of the customers, but if they...More

We arrived for a quick drink on a Sunday afternoon while exploring Covent Garden. Good Location to stand on the balcony/terrace and watch the Entertainer’s on below. Although I imagine this gets busy and there a few seats there. Inside there were seats a plenty...More

Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude
of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or
simply to be among the multitude of people who pass
