The Duke of Edinburgh, Brixton

Revisted this pub (Thursday evening) and enjoyed the quiz. Decided to post an updated review of a positive nature in terms of this place's progress, only to find I've been accused of being a "Sock-puppet" (which smacks of irony given it's by a user who's only comment on BITE comes after being asked to post "by the chef").

Seriously guys, take the criticisms given with a pinch of salt, or take on board what people are saying. I've never been asked to leave any pub, let alone this one - get over the fact that people are expressing their individual opinions and concentrate on making your business your priority.

I praised the landlady for her welcoming attitude in my last review, but if this is how her chef acts in a public forum (even if it is out of loyalty and pride) you have to wonder if he'll have a job come the New Year?

The Railway, Clapham North

The decor (comic book portraits, bowls made from vinyl LPs, kinda rockabilly vibe) doesn't match the atmosphere, which is virtually non-existant - and the music certainly doesn't fit. I suspect the sorts of people who appreciate this aesthetic have decamped to the brilliant and more authentic little cafe over the road in the arches.

Went there for a roast on Sunday. Terrible.

Greasy, boiled (not roasted) potatoes, a scraggily (if generous) portion of chicken and a splat of cabbage. The horseradish condiment have grown a skin and had obviously been put out earlier. Massive disappointment. Could barely eat half of it.

Wouldn't recommend it for food, especially with the likes of The Landor nearby.

Shame really, because it's a good space - I just can't think of a reason for ever going again.

The Wheatsheaf, Vauxhall

The outside of The Wheatsheaf is now a glossy dog-parp brown.

I'll pass.
