The Pelton Arms, Greenwich

After being well entertained by Geoff and a number of the regulars in The Pelton on Saturday night I promised I'd write a review.

Primarily I found this a very friendly place and because they were running a wine and cheese night the atmosphere felt more like a party that a pub and very welcoming to an outsider like me.

There must have been 8 pumps on of which the St Austell Trelawney and Red Squirrel Red Tail were very good.

The cheese and wine night was being run by the pub's wine supplier and a local cheese expert for 15 a head. In fact there was so much left, we were invited to join in from our Cribbage table in the corner once the paying guests had scoffed their fill.

Good pub, good beer, good people.

Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street

Not just a great place to go to introduce outsiders to a bit of London's heritage but also a decent pub for lunch and a beer.

The staff were in the most part antipodeans (this is London, what do you expect) and very friendly with it.

The food was tasty and at 8 for the Steak and Kidney very reasonable. Incidentally, the Steak and Kidney is a bit of an institution here and they used to take a spoonful out of yesterday's mix and put it in today's puddings and so the same pudding was served for some 200 years. the barman assured me this has now stopped. Am I wrong in being a bit disappointed?

Blue Lion, Holborn

Dropped in here when passing on Friday afternoon. It had a nice and relaxed atmosphere, was clean and open and had a pool table. They had a good range of ales and I had a well kept pint of Butcombe Bitter
