Guest Review (23 Feb 2004)

I have visited the Covent Garden pub many times after work and beyond. Sitting outside at tables on a fine afternoon watching the world go by is always a joy. Thursday and Friday nights get hot inside with Karaoke. Security is very good so no need to fear.

I feel that more ladies should visit on these nights to make for a more enjoyable evening for the lads ! It somethimes seems like a regulars night which I'd like to see and hear more fresh acts on the stage.The beer and all drinks at the Covent is top class and served with a smile from the good looking boys and girls behind the bar.The prices are reasonable for an inner city pub.

Visitors from all over our planet visit the Covent and I have had a million laughs here at this fine venue. Come and have a drink with me and the lads that work hard during the week and say hi,while enjoying all the greatness this pub offers.

See you there.....

I have visted the covent many times after work and after sport. I go for the karoke on thursday and friday nights. I especially enjoy the people who run the karoke mark and Jimmy.

Karaoke runs Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays 7:30 till about Midnight, and Sundays 5:30 - 11:30ish. The surly guy in the bar manager, efficient, but hardly ever a word - probably an acquired taste! Watch your drink - the 'glassies' are efficient to a fault, and all glasses under half-full are fair game - easy to lose your drink while you're up for a song, but the bar staff will usually cheerfully replace it. Quando is the song done by Uncle Laurie the Covent's singing Scotsman. Another regular is Baritone Burt who looks late 60s but is going to celebrate his 80th at the Covent in a few months. Jimmy the host and Mark the sound guy are worth a mention - Jimmy is just sheer joy to watch for his facial expressions (and always immaculately dressed). There's also a sometimes singer called Mad Dave who looks like an axe-murdered off a Hollywood set, complete with strange baggy shorts and wierd hand and facial movements...

'Tell me quando, quando, quando". You know you're at the Covent Garden on Karaoke nights. Same singers.......same songs. Some real talent here! Cabaret as well, one regular punter dances around the bar with a full schooner glass on his head! Sometimes even Chuck Norris makes an appearance when he's in town! Top bar staff; nice girls too ..... except for one guy who is very surly and refers to some of the regulars as 'drunks'. The real star of the covent is 'Johnny' the security guard, always has a smile and a laugh! Bottom line; you always have a top night at the 'Covent'.

Have visited the Covent many times after work and beyond. Thursday and Friday nights have a great Karaoke evening that needs more girls to attend. The Security is very observant so no need to worry about trouble.The beer is always really cold and served with a smile. I give this pub 10 out of 10. You meet people from all over the world at this venue and mostly come away with a giggle and a half. A lot of people that work at Large Public Function Centres nearby drink here ( I am one of them) Plese stop and say Hi we don't bite... Cheers..
