The Ship and Shovell, Charing Cross

This is becoming a favourite. Lovely Badger beers. A few snugs. Central location. Great old pub feel. What's not to like?

The Masons Arms, Marylebone

I love Badger and the beer here won't disappoint. I visited on a Sunday and found the place not to busy. The fires were crackling and the atmosphere was relaxed.

On the downside, it's expensive. Also, the barmaid served my pint a good inch below the rim of the glass -- no head, just a low level.

The Carpenters Arms is a short stagger away, with plenty more choice but a little less atmosphere.

Very disappointing. The staff are stressed and rude at lunchtime. Everything seems to take forever, and is never worth the wait. Poor menu. Sour beer.

The Swan is a few doors down and compares well. The Lamb (Youngs) and The Rugby (Shep'Neame) are the other end of Great Ormond St, and both are much better.
