I have recently enjoyed a couple of very enjoyable visits to this vibrant and friendly hostelry just off the Seven Dials roundabout.

This is definitely the tavern's most successful reincarnation since the heady days of the Compton Arms in the last millennium.

There is a natural warmth and relaxed atmosphere and one is made very welcome right from [as our friends from over the pond say]the get-go.

There is a highly imaginative food selection with an interesting range of ales, lagers and wines etc. The tavern has a sense of wit and eloquent charm about it...The French Horn may look rather diminutive from the outside but once you enter the stimulating arena you will soon realise that this fun tavern punches well above its weight...enter and enjoy.

Nice quiet pub. Shame they missed an opportunity to get punters in for Euro 2012 until the last few days of the matches

then it was rammed. Didn't have tv and sound for the Olympic opening ceremony, instead I went to the Palmeria.

The blonde female landllady always looks so moody and uninviting, can't fault the other staff.

Beers not cheap but a nice pub and you don't get the usual d*ckheads nausing you up.
