The Lamb and Flag

Squaremeal Review of The Lamb and Flag ?

Covent Garden's oldest pub (1623) promoted bare knuckle fighting within, hence its previous name, The Bucket Of Blood. Poet John Dryden was almost fatally duffed up outside in 1697 for penning unkind verse about Charles II's mistress, The Duchess Of Portsmouth. Would modern supporters of the future Charles III's wife act similarly? A dilapidated ground floor bar features brass nameplates indicating long forgotten regulars' preferred drinking spots, while comforting trad English grub is served in a creaky dining room above. Being on every tourist 's must-see list has obvious disadvantages. Persevere! A pint of Scrumpy Jack or Bombardier & a chunky ploughman's here is a Covent Garden rite of passage.
