Came here once with a couple of friends back in 1992. I recall that the IRA bombed it shortly after but that’s my only memory.

Average type pub with average real ale. Not a place I would consider returning to with the two close at hand Fuller's establishments.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Sussex

Standard-issue Taylor Walker pub, with an 'olde London pub from the box' interior. Transient Covent Garden customer base and generally disinterested staff. Five handpumps, offering a dull and expensive selection along the lines of the Ruddles, London Glory, Old Golden Hen and Rocking Rudolph (£4.37 after 10% Camra discount) available on my latest visit. I go back every few years to see whether it had improved. It hasn't.
