SquareMeal Review of The Harp

It scooped Camra’s top national gong in 2010/11, proof-positive that The Harp is a plucky individualist when it comes to character & ales. On offer are thirst-slaking pints of Sambrooks Wandle, tipples from Sussex veterans Harveys, Woild Moild from the Wolf Brewery in Norfolk or Twickenham-brewed Naked Ladies from an eight-pump armoury at the bar. Landlady Bridget (Binnie) Walsh & her girls also dispense a fine range of ciders, perry & whisky – plus baguettes stuffed with O’Hagan’s sausages to satisfy any hunger pangs. Beyond its divine stained-glass windows & hanging baskets, this admirable West End treasure has kept itself free from corporate interference – no wonder it’s regularly rammed with local workers & theatre-goers as well as legions of real-ale pilgrims.

CAMRA pub of the year 2010/2011 and deservedly so, focussing on the quality and selection of beer being served. Apparently they have sausages and cider too, so that's something to try next time when I introduce friends to a new favourite place in the West End.
