Molly's Bar, New Southgate

It's a locals' pub, but once you're inside, you don't feel intimidated. Almost everyone in there knows each other, but if you're a stranger, they won't care and will either talk to you (especially if you know your football or horse racing) or leave you alone.

Staff are always good: quick, good memories, and even though there's rarely more than one person on, they're always on top of things.

Furthermore, the Guinness is good (it's an Irish owned pub and many regular are Irish or have Irish backgrounds) and beer is cheap (for London).

Mabel's Tavern, Euston

I'm a regular visitor to Mabel's. Not a bad pub. A bit sanitised, but a good selection of beer and as others have pointed out, compared to nearby competitors, it's very good.

However, a couple of occassions when I've been in when a big match has been on TV has seen the place woefully understaffed and seemingly completely unprepared for the (entirely predictable) increase in staff and food orders. This isn't out of character as service is pretty average on a normal evening.

So, if it's quiet or you're not in a hurry, and you're in the King's Cross area, it's worth a visit.

The Slug and Lettuce, Soho

Good news: the Laurel Pub Company, owners of Slug & Lettuce and Yates's are going out of business. Maybe there is a god afterall.
