Ye Olde Swiss Cottage, Swiss Cottage

i've been coming here for several years. i wouldn't propose to my girlfriend here though its certainly alright for a few well-kept, well-priced and tasty beers. and you can normally get a table etc.

nice enough staff - if you're a regular, they may speak to you, otherwise, i'm just happy for them to serve me quickly and politely, which they always do...

decor is not lovely but who cares when the beer is this cheap and so easy to get to (about 7 bus routes and a tube station next to it).

smells alright, modern and clean toilets, don't know what the fuss is about.

clientelle range from local drama students to after-work crowd via some quite odd yet totally harmless locals. some rude boys can hang out by the pool hall side of things, i.e. to the left hand side of the big patio as you face the pub. each to their own.

glad some toffs don't like it, more space for normal people to enjoy without hooray henry drama students laughing and snorting away...

The Punch Bowl, Mayfair

Always full and always expensive. Lots of other brilliant pubs in the area. AVOID....!!!!

The North Star, Finchley Road

Pretty average pub, seems good for TV sport, covered / heated smoking area outside.

Haven't been upstairs for while, though it's a bit run down, has a couple of pool tables.

Last time I was there a few weeks back, a few unsavoury characters were enjoying squaring up to each other in the back garden. Nothing came of it, quite unnecessary and unpleasant nevertheless.

Booze seems mainly well kept, pub has traditional feel to it. Close to Finchley Road tube.
