Willow Walk, Victoria

If this is such a crap pub, why do they have such loyal and intelligent bar staff? I've no idea why the Lovely Lydia, fluent in more languages than you can even dream of, would want to work here. But she does!

The Jugged Hare, Pimlico

This pub underwent something of a revival when Magda was running it. I'm sorry I didn't write a review then - I suppose you take it a bit for granted when it's going all right. Now they seem to have let the local drunks take the place over. Just recently I was hassled by a rather manacing drunk at a nearby cash dispenser. I managed to shake him off, went and did a bit of shopping and dropped into the Jugged Hare for a pint. Lo and behold, the same drunk was rolling around the pub pestering the customers. The bar staff were clearly aware how drunk he was, but were cheerfully serving him more alcohol, even though he could barely stand or put a sentence together. When I pointed out the obvious, they just shrugged. I'm sure Magda would have given him the bum's rush without hesitation. The beer's still quite good though.

The Prince of Wales, Kensington

I have recently discovered this pub, and I have to tell you that some of the reviews I have read are a lot of gentlemen's genitals. On each occasion I have visited this pub, the service has been prompt and attentive. On each occasion I have opted for the Adnam's Broadside, which has been very well cellared. I did observe that the staff had to put up with a bunch of drunks who complained about everything. Perhaps these were some of the people who have complained about allegedly bad service? I must say that I admired the patience and restraint of the staff with these people.

By the way, does anyone not agree that Simona must surely be the most beautiful barmaid in London? Why is she working in a bar, for heaven's sake? I would like to give her modelling agency a good kick up the backside.
