Punch & JudyThe downstairs bar is among the worst of the dingy tourist-trap hellholes that are unfortunately typical of this area of London. This is no bad thing in the summer monmths, however, as its discouraging appearance helps to keep the hordes at bay, and upstairs there is a spacious balcony with great views of Covent Garden plaza, a relaxing distance from the unicycle riders and jugglers. The drinks selection is basic, but pretty sensibly priced considering the location, and as a result it has become a popular meeting spot for London's backpacker crowd. A great place to enjoy the sunshine and chat to people from the oddest corners of the world. As with most pubs in Covent Garden, it becomes unbearably crowded for a couple of hours after the offices close and can be a bit sleazy late at night.
