The Bridge House Tavern, Penge

Lovely pub with great service, if a little under-populated when we were there. We had burgers and they were the best chips I've had in months but yes, they are pricey for SE20. Tribute was on the pumps, I forget what else. The pub is on two levels which seems to work well with the upstairs (where the bar is) being livelier with louder music and the downstairs a bit quieter. Moving to the area shortly and will be very pleased to call this my local. There were leaflets on the tables for a regular farmer's market.

Previous reviewers must have had the bad luck not to go on a Sunday - extensive three-course menu for 9.95! You can't go wrong. We've just got back from there today - my tomato and basil soup starter was rich and flavourful, roast pheasant actually tasted gamey, a rarity in this part of the world I've found, and proper sticky toffee pudding with custard was wonderful. Mr Porcupine equally impressed with his potted shrimp, roast beef and apple pie. A gorgeous little country pub with good English food. Best to book on Sundays though.

The Knott Bar, Deansgate

I second bloomfieldjpm on the Chicken and Chorizo stew. It's also the best place for real ale in Manchester I've discovered so far, and the staff are always handy with a recommendation. I mostly come in here afternoons to do a bit of work over a pint, and it's fantastic, friendly and quiet except for a few students and the other freelancer tapping away on their laptop. Gets pretty rammed and noisy in the evenings though.
