The Ship and Shovell, Charing Cross

A fantastic traditional English pub, serving the full range of Hall and Woodhouse beers including one of my top 5, Tanglefoot. Food adequate but not great. Generally standing-room only early evening and full of tossers in suits, but the beer is so good that this is usually tolerable. One half is cosy and with a dartboard upstairs (they have a team in the Trafalgar Dart league - Google it) and the other half in spacious. Me and my partner-in-crime recently derived immense pleasure from feeding the pub mice with dry-roast peanuts, late in the evening when the pub was emptying out.

The Withies Inn, Compton

Pub aimed at the stuffy-old-fart brigade, serving some good ales, decent bar snacks, and expensive restaurant-kwality food. Sunday roasts excellent, though don't expect much change out of a purple beer token. Currently serving Hogs Back T.E.A., K+B Sussex bitter, and one other sassion ale which I can't remember. Unusual in having no Poles behind the bar, just a load of old geezers in bow ties.

Coach and Horses, Fleet Street

Classy-looking from the outside, not so classy on the inside, but still a respectable boozer. Unfortunately the only Ale on is Greed King IPA, but at least there are 2 nice pool tables and a dartboard. The one oustanding feature of the pub is the dumb waitor ('Magic beer chute') upstairs in the games room.
