The Roebuck, Borough

Found shelter at the Roebuck after a near death experience at a nearby establishment (for details of which see my review on the crown, on blackfriars road). Found solace well into a near ruined evening. Bright and spacious. Pleasant enough bar man apparently genuinely happy to be there and a decent selection featuring Meantime which I get the impression rotates often. One or two heavy drinking but amiable regulars and a handful of smiley local pretty girls.

The Crown, Borough

I'll have to give it a 1 for at least they do serve beer. Second time in to give it another chance on a weekday, but...considering your choices in the area you'd have to be drunk since tuesday to have a good time in here, which might explain the regulars, who look like they've been drinking at the Crown since the mines shut up, and the smell suggests they haven't bothered to wash since. On the weekends, the management must be deaf or desperately trying to drive out the perverts and polyester suits with the horrid music they pump through there. Or maybe it is their attempt at "pumping up" the atmosphere. Who cares? Unless you're trawling for toothless crack wh*res, steer clear and head round the corner to the Rose and Crown for an honest authentic pub or if you want a lively one try Gladstone Arms (a bit further into Borough), and if youre lazy like me, anything on the Cut will do better, even the rather generic Ring. However, if you simply must spend quality time with the homeless, you'd be better off handing out soup at London City Mission on Webber Street than drinking with them here.
