The Alleyns Head, West Dulwich

Went there for the first time since the revamp. Very competitive prices for the beer and a great selection. Not the greatest "atmosphere" in the world but for that price and that selection you can't go far wrong...

The Dolphin, Sydenham

Beer is well-kept albeit too cold and the prices are an absolute pisstake. I was distinctly unimpressed - go to the Golden Lion across the road.

The Jerusalem Tavern, Clerkenwell

Great little pub with a great selection of beers - its great to be able to get a mild in london! It's drawn in an interesting manner too...

It was quite crowded but we found a seat, lots of people stood though.

What I didn't like was that they insisted that if you stood outside you had to have a plastic "glass". I remained inside but did not like feeling inhibited by the fact that I was "not allowed" outside if I fancied it...and didn't like being questioned as to where I was planning to drink; I would have made up my mind after I got my drink thank you very much!

All that said, its a great little pub with a lot of character with friendly bar staff and fantastic beer.
