A revisit - again, at closing time. Don't know why I always seem to end Soho Crawls here.

Noticed that they have 13 Casks and much more keg on. And I missed Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter. Not that there was anything wrong with my Jaipur. I just panic ordered when faced with so much choice - at a bar, and no table service in freedom week :-)

Today was my first visit to the Lyric in almost 5 years. It is a small pub that appears to be one of very few to have re-opened in the West End. Having been all around the country over the last 6 weeks, I was dismayed to find many of central London's pubs still closed. Most will be bigger than the Lyric. So, this is a great shame. But just wandering around the streets, it can be seen that London is much quieter than normal.

A few other customers were in and there were 3 bar staff. The ale and cider range was not as large as normal. But the selection was still ok. The regular ale is Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter. Guests were Tring Pale Four, Big Smoke Distant Lands & Southwark El Dorado. The real cider was Abrahall's Slack Alice. In addition, there were about a dozen craft beers.

Certainly one of the better pubs in the West End.

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

Odd little pub, comprising a sparsely decorated 'L'-shaped bar with a limited amount of furniture. There is also an upstairs room; but, when the weather permits, most of the customers are either standing outside or using the tables in the small rear patio area. However, my latest re-visit occurred towards the end of the Covid-19 lockdown when this place was notable as being one of the very few central London pubs open for take-outs and thus a very welcome brief stop on my first (essential travel) visit to the capital for more than three months. Unsurprisingly, most of the handpumps were temporarily out of use, but two cask beers - the Strickland dry Irish stout collaboration between Thornbridge and Adnams, and the Distant Lands golden ale from Big Smoke - were not only available and in good form but also remarkably priced at just £2.50/pint. Well done for keeping things going...
