Dirty Dick's, Bishopsgate

Booked this place for a function after visiting here many times before and I really enjoyed it. The staff were very overworked and some of them were new but they tried really hard to make sure everything went well. They have a good selection of real ales and also a good wine list and the food was fine. On Saturday nights they start to run out of things so adjust your expectations accordingly. Nice atmosphere.

BrewDog, Shoreditch

The thing with brewdog is, it's exactly what you describe when you plan out your perfect pub on a beermat with a bookies pen after about eight pints. The thing is, it's lacking that je ne sais quoi (that's French) that make it somewhere you could spend an entire evening. The beer's good. The staff are nice and they know what they're talking about. The food is fine, the decor and interior are fine and the music's good. However, it will never be anyone's 'local' because it has no individual character, it's the same as all the other Brewdogs. Also, if you don't know anything about beer but know what you like then for God's sake read the booklets that are strewn about because you don't want to be asking the bar staff for something 'like Tetleys' or 'similar to a Stella'. They will give you a look which Medusa would have been proud of.

The Fly in the Loaf, Liverpool

Very nice pub with the biggest range of beers in this area. The staff are friendly and know their beers, they will bring it over to you instead of expecting you to wait at the bar while it settles.
It is quite expensive though, the guest ales are about 3.60 minimum

The Grapes, Liverpool

Since the Community College has opened up next door it's undergone a little revamp and now looks quite nice. Fairy lights and tatty chandeliers is the look they've gone for. They usually have at least four local ales on tap as well as a few odd things in the fridge and the bar staff are dead friendly.

Bar Hannah, Liverpool

It's a nice bar, the food it serves is gfood and they have a nice selection of beer including Blue Moon on draught and Cains. Two cocktails for 6 between 5 and 8. The only problem you might have is that the bar staff sometimes have absolutely no idea who's next to be served, so not a place to visit if you're in a bad mood. Pop music blasts from the speakers, pop videos on the flat screens. You get some proper beauts in there some nights, luck of the draw.
