The Barley Mow, Shoreditch

Friendly little boozer for the area serving good drinks. Was pretty full although judging from the some of the clientele I got the impression it was that they were waiting for queues to die down elsewhere or were not on guestlists. Atmosphere on the whole was good with seating available later on as things quietened down. I also get the impression be a nice place for a daytime drink.

Couple of ales on and the odd drink or two I had not seen before on tap as well. Opted for Leffe blonde which is a treat. Prices were good for the area. Biggest moan and I know that this is not the fault of the pub that if you go outside of this pub like my friend did for a fag you will get hassled for spare change every 2-3 minutes which is offputting. Overall though if you find yourself in the area it is a recommend from me at least.

Nelson's Retreat, Old Street

Bit of an enigma this pub. Situated right next to Old Street but thankfully it hasn't succumbed to the changing of some bars in the neighbourhood taking place round there these days. That said it could do with a bit of a refurb in that in looks straight out of the 80s in terms of look and could be a bit fresher Think it does see itself as a local pub & if I honest I had a good time whilst there and the atmosphere was friendly. Had lagers and they were ok with staff pleasant rather than friendly. If nothing else made from a change from the general uppity feel that some places in Shoreditch & Hoxton carry these days

The Dogstar, Brixton

Was in here for pre gig drinks before venturing to the Academy. Staff pleasant drinks fine. It was a good way to start the night out. Was generally quiet with a mixed clientele I could imagine that it gets pretty busy later on but didn't venture back so cant be sure. That said I would recommend it early on at least particularly before a gig
