About the Pub

Called Charlies for some years, it has now reverted to its original 1850 name. Stood at number 154 until rebuilt in 1932 to allow street widening. Situated at the corner of Drury Lane and Great Queen Street, close to the imposing Freemasons Hall, well placed to serve both Covent Garden market area and the theatre-going public who throng to this area in the evening. Electric lights housed in gaslight-style lanterns illuminate the dark stained wood bar, while the general lighting in the room is subdued. Seating is mostly at free standing tables for four, high level ones in the middle, and lower ones at the sides. Three upstairs function rooms are available for hire for parties, receptions, etc. The food range includes platters, pies, burgers, fish and chips, and sandwiches.
