The pub’s history is interesting, well documented on CAMRA’s site.
A first in here last night and I can’t add to what’s already been written, certainly very atmospheric, traditional and characterful; one of a few remaining proper boozers in Covent Garden. It is though very cramped and getting to the bar is hard.
On arrival, I was met with a Broadside clip reversed, then just Tribute at a just £1.95 a half, which is beyond charitable by any London standard, let alone Covent Garden. However, there were two unused pumps, one being used as a spool for a roll of blue kitchen towel!
The pub is justifiably popular for the right reasons, but just one ale on is a real let-down; certainly one to visit, but I doubt I’d stay for more the half.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Nell Gwynne

A small traditional pub with a lot of character. The interior had the bar facing you as you enter, old wallpapered walls and a raised area on the right hand side, with an upright piano. Above the piano was a collection of original hand painted ceramic Whiskey, Gin and Brandy serving vessels. We found a space at the end of the bar near the piano, for a spot of vertical drinking and enjoyed the Adnam's Ghost Ship, along with Alan the resident pianist, who plays every Tuesday evening from 6pm.

Found this superb little old fashioned pub tucked away off the Strand. it’s very much a proper pub with an old jukebox in the corner and loud cheerful clientele inside and out. a few decent ales on too. Well worth popping in.
