The William Web Ellis, Twickenham

Nice and roomy JDW pub in the Twickenham town centre, a 3 minutes' walk from the train station. Better selection of cask ales and kegs + bottles than many other Spoons pubs. I had a cask pint of J.W. Lees Moonraker, very reasonably priced. I could have had many more ticks here, but had no capacity for more. Also had the fish & chips for lunch, decent enough.

The Oyster Rooms, Fulham

DW pub with just as little atmosphere as you expect in a combined shopping mall and tube station. Very handy for Chelsea football though. I could have had 1 or 2 cask ticks here, and most likely a few bottles, but was in no mood for beer(!), as i had a Chelsea FC hospitality package coming up. Settled for a gin & tonic, and the bartender typically did not ask me which gin I wanted, and did not offer a slice of lemon or lime. Service was efficient, but as normal in JDW without a smile. Can't blame the underpaid bastards for that. I did not eat, but they have the normal JDW menu.

The Antelope, Belgravia

I attempted to survive a day (before a concert in Cadogan Hall) as a "Sloane Ranger" (or does that expression apply only to women?), but I am afraid that both my age and attire disqualified me mercilessly. Anyway, The Antelope was the only decent pub I could find near Sloane Square, and it was definitely less Sloanie in character (at least in the quiet afternoon) than the restaurant I unashamedly dined in at Sloane Square afterwards. The kitchen at The Antelope was closed, as I visited after normal lunch hours. I started out with a gin & tonic. No new beers for me, but I had the Fuller's Red Fox (a bit soapy in the finish) and the ESB (which was fine). I asked if they had bottles of Golden Pride or Bengal Lancer, but to no avail. The bartenders were friendly enough though.
