The Halfway House, Sevenoaks

Visited today for lunch and few pints after a Sunday morning cycle into Kent with a bitter-drinking mate and moved to post my first review here for a few years.

The building looks a bit lonely on a hill next to Lidl, but turned out to be a great pub with three ales on draft, including Doom Bar and Harveys, and Cornish Pilsner, an excellent lager.

Three-course lunch for £14 is great value. There was only a handful of people in so we took it in turns to select records for the turntable in front of an open fire.

Friendly bar staff and punters. I wish this was my local.

The Coach and Horses, Stoke Newington

Been here twice this week to watch football and must agree with recent comments about what a fine pub this place is.

Passes the litmus test of three ales on tap and coat hooks under the bar. Good selection of premium lager: Staropramen and Kozel both go down very well. The Peroni tastes like it should, which is becoming a bit of a rarity in London boozers these days where the trend seems to be to water it down.

Always a warm, bubbly atmosphere and it seems to be an oasis of sense from the skinny-jeaned foppery in the surrounding area.

Appreciate Dylarolla's comment about TV sport. On Sunday there were plenty in to watch the ManYoo v Chelski match and they pulled out the projector screen. Last night only a couple watching ManYoo v Sunderland and they left it on the smaller flat screen and had music playing, which didn't affect the atmosphere or the football.

Bar staff friendly, and smiled when they served you. I wish I could call this place my local.

The Prince of Wales Feathers, Warren Street

Was here on a pub crawl early Saturday evening. Pleasant enough and good range of beers. Didn't try the food. I seem to remember they had sofas and you had to go upstairs to use the loo, where there was another bar room.
