A Skelding Summary

The Nell Gwynne Tavern
2 Bull Inn Court WC2

One of my favourite taverns in Covent Garden.
Named after the famous mistress of King Charles II, this small intimate pub dates from 1650. Often very busy, it's a popular attraction to tourists and the local business community, encouraging a broad social mix.

The cosmopolitan bar staff are very efficient and friendly. Good range of beers, Caffreys, Guinness and Cider recommended.

Smokey atmosphere compensated by fans and air conditioning. Two TVs and satellite television.J The juke box has a fair selection and (thnkfully) not as adventurous as some perhaps. Live folk music on Saturday nights. Not open on Sundays or Bank Holidays. No cooked food but a fair range of decent sandwiches. Going to the toilet can be an adventure as the approach has a very low ceiling. Limbo dancers would be in their element here and later in the evening just hold tight and you'll be allright.
