The Ruskin Arms, Manor Park

Sadly closed down a couple of months ago and currently boarded up! Whether or not it will reopen in the future remains to be seen? I don't think they could pull it down, so I suspect it will be turned into flats with a possible retail unit or two at street level. Another part of East London's rich rock music history bites the dust!

The Old Nun's Head, Nunhead

We'd been meaning to try The Old Nun's Head for quite a while, and finally got round to it following a visit to Nunhead Cemetery (as you do). Since it was around 2.00pm when we arrived, our experience may not be representative of what the pub is like during evenings and weekends. But I'd have to say this is one of the best pubs we've been to in a LONG time. A friendly welcome, a decent range of real ales (five or six on during our visit) and a good general atmosphere - what more could you want? Sadly, we only stayed for a couple of pints due to having to head back "north of the water" before we got bogged down in there for the rest of the day.

The Beaufort, Hendon

Like so many others, we popped into the Beaufort following a visit to the nearby RAF Museum. Fairly typical for a modern Young's pub and none the worse for that. Only two real ales on offer during at the time - Young's "Ordinary" and Sharp's Doom Bar at around £4.30 per pint ("London prices"). The quality on the "Ordinary" was excellent, and the staff were pleasant and attentive bearing in mind the pub was busy since it was a pre-Christmas Friday lunchtime. We didn't try the food, though it looked like the standard Young's menu - someone below mentioned microwaves to which my standard reply would be "If you want a gourmet meal, go to an upmarket restaurant!". We'd intended only having a quick pint but stayed for another.
