The Museum Tavern, Bloomsbury

Considering its location-- immediately across the road from the British Museum's spectacular neo-classical facade-- I think it's fair to say that Joe Bloggs has no right to expect that this will be an enjoyable pub to drink at. Tourists, tourists, toursits, easy money for the lowest common denominator... well, no, actually. Of course there's tourists, but to The Museum Tavern's credit, it manages a snug but welcoming atmosphere, a great selection of real ales underpinned by Youngs, while retaining the kind of traditional London pub decor that here signifies 'charm' rather than 'dirty, couldn't care less flea pit tourist trap'.

Not a bad place for a pint in Bloomsbury at all.

The Barley Mow, Englefield Green

A pub with history, but you wouldn't think so if you looked at the decor; now, it's just another upmarket family pub development at the end of the day. Still, you can't take away from the lovely location on Englefield Green-- a bit of 'little England' that inspires ill-founded nostalgia.

The Armstrong Gun, Englefield Green

A nice pub with a good balance of students and locals.
