Crown and Sceptre, Hemel Hempstead

I discovered this pub just over a year ago. It does what it says on the box. It is a traditional country pub with a warm welcome. The default beers are Greene King IPA and Abbot ale. A number of guest beers, which have been different each time I visited but always in peak condition, supplement these. The lady tells me the wine selection is extremely good as well (do they do a “real ale” BTEC?). We have eaten there a couple of times (evening meal and a Sunday roast) and each time the food was excellent and not overpriced considering the quality. Highly recommended!

The Tipperary, Fleet Street

Was passing the other evening and glanced in. There were different people behind the bar so I decided to pop in. It appears the previous couple who ran it have retired and a new set have taken over. Have to agree with the comments made by StephenM a few months ago but would urge him to try the Tipperary again. Staff that are genuinely friendly, there were a couple of well kept guest ales and the menu looked better value for money. Keep up the good work!

The St Brides Tavern, Blackfriars

I discovered this pub recently. A very pleasant change from some of the chav infested haunts nearby. Choice of three real ales besides the usual lagers that pubs have to sell to survive these days. The Greene King IPA is a fixture but there are two guests which change regularly unlike many pubs who have the same guests (usually London Pride and ANO). Beers well kept which is often not the case. There is a traditional bar downstairs and a more trendy one upstairs. I did not try the food but it looked and smelt good. Recommended!
