The Duke of Edinburgh, Upton Park

Decent enough place for pre-match pint. Service was instant despite being packed, as they were obviously well staffed up and prepared for the matchday crowds.

Quite a pleasant atmosphere to go with the wife, despite the 97:3 ratio of men to women!

The Clachan, Soho

Last time I was here, I was quite possibly underage. I used to go shopping in Oxford Street with my mate and buy up half of HMV and then try our luck in the pubs.

I returned here out of nostalgia more than anything else, but I had a pleasant surprise when I saw one of my favourite ales - St Austell Tribute and it was absolutely perfect.

I should have had a second, but given they had a fantastic range of about 8-10 ales on, I thought I would dabble with something else. I went for the Acorn Barnsley Gold. It was OK, but not quite as pleasant as the Tribute.

The pub seemed a lot smaller than I recall. I guess 20 years ago when my pub experiences were more cosy little village pubs it did seem huge, but compared to the pubs of today (JDW/ABO and other chains) I suppose it isn't that huge.

Would love to return here - may not leave it another 20 years though.

Start the Bus, Bristol

Not bad for a Sunday breakfast/brunch/lunch.
