The Alma, Newington Green

Quite pricey but the new owners have created a really nice atmosphere - it's got a touch a class but without the snobbery can that affect this part of town. It's been nice to see a good range of ages at the Alma - again this part of town can be so yuppie/yummy mummy it's really refreshing to see a few over-60s in an N1/16 pub.
Good selection and quality of ales and lagers and really friendly staff. Currently my favourite local hostelry.

The Pillars of Hercules, Soho

I've spent many happy hours in the Pillars over the years but a visit 2 weekends ago was the first in some time and it was a sorry reflection of its former self.
The ale was undrinkable (I took mine back and asked for a glass of water instead and another of our group left two thirds of his pint untouched), my chair barely had a seat on it and the staff were curt and unfriendly.
It's probably a reflection of Saturday evening in Soho with most of the punters knocking back crap like Jaegerbombs but I won't be rushing back any day of the week.

The Old Eagle, Camden

What a pleasure - a decent pub in Camden! Good beer, friendly staff, unobtrusive music. Will defintely go back next time I'm in the area.
