See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Rebuilt in 1961 as part of Oasis swimming pool. After many years as a fairly indifferent pub it was acquired by Craft in 2014 and, as with many of their pubs, offers a huge and regularly changing range of cask and craft beers. Situated in the ancient parish of St Giles, whose church featured in several of Hogarth's etches, including Gin Lane; it being on the north-eastern edge of Covent Garden will probably have a more modern resonance.

On two levels, this, at the time the sixth Craft Beer Co. outlet, would be more at home in Beer Street with its 15 pumps dispensing an ever changing range of beers from across the UK. On top of this are 30 keg fonts.There are frequent tap takeovers and also meet the brewer events.

Snacks are served from Mr Barrick's and include Scotch Eggs and Pies - many with perhaps unexpected fillngs such as black pudding in a Scotch Egg.

FRom their website - The premises is accessible to wheelchair users by way of a ramp which can be requested from staff. Unfortunately the WCs are are not accessible to nor adapted for guests who are wheelchair users or have reduced mobility.
