Being a bumpkin don't get up to the smog too often, and when I do I seem to have hazy collections of where I've been..

As such, anyone got any good recommendations for drinks (including old man's ale) and a half decent place to grab some grub nearby?

Target location is within a couple of tube stops from Covent Garden.

Cheers.

YOu can't go wrong with the Ship and Shovell (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/86/864/Ship_and_Shovell/Charing_Cross) or The Harp (http://www.harpcoventgarden.com/) (both about 10 mins walk from Covent Garden.

For food - it depends what you like really. Have been to Wahaca (http://www.wahaca.co.uk/html/1_restaurant1.html) (Mexican, very nice, fast service, reasonably priced, you can't book though), the Thai place round the corner from the Harp (decent service, not bad at all) and Pizza Express (what you might expect, but edible)

Thanks Zippy, should have remembered the Ship and Shovell - that's quite a CUK haunt :)

Counting House - Cornhill (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/35/3534/Counting_House/Bank) - another CUK haunt. An "ale and pie" pub - what more could you ask for?

If you want to treat yourself, Hawksmoor, near seven dials. Damn good steak.

Especially the Hawksmoor! Best steak I've ever had.

Great ales in the S&S and also the Counting House

If you fancy a good feed and don't mind a traveling a bit more can reccomend the Turkish Ocackbasi (BBQ) places in Stoke Newington.

Couple of personal reccomendations from me are Testi (the name is a clue to one of their 'signature' dishes), and Mangal 1

If you don't want to travel that far, Bodeans is pretty good, as is Yalla Yalla

Thanks all for the suggestions. Ended up going to the Ship and Shovell with ambitions of moving on to Hawksmoor - maybe had the odd one or two too many at the Ship and only made it as far as the Indian opposite CC station, which was very nice!
