Nice enough pub, if a little drab. I didn't like the fact that they didn't turn their pump clips round if a beer was off. This made it look like they had 5 beers on, when actually it was only 3.

The pub is found in Covent Garden, Central London, WC2B 5JS.

Nicholsons pub opposite the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, on Catherine Street just down from the Nell of Drury Lane. Nice enough simple pub with burgundy and cream walls with lots of dark wood. Ceased to be a pub and now a tapas bar and restaurant.

We have visited this pub once, seen 3 different beers and tried 1 of them.
