In 1679, a man attacked John Dryden in this tiny pub’s alleyway for writing scurrilous verses about one of Charles II’s mistresses. These days, drinkers spill out into the alley during summertime; during winter, they cozy up around the working fireplaces and leaded-glass windows. On tap are real ales from small independent breweries such as Greene King IPA, plus suds from larger breweries. Creaky, unpretentious wooden interiors (unchanged for decades) are a perfect antidote to touristy Covent Garden market.

Insider Tip: Welcoming bartenders take orders for hearty English pub grub—roast dinners, pies, and fish and chips.
