Sheffield Tap, Sheffield

Very pleasant lounge atmosphere, with nice leather upholstery. Decent selection on the bar, priced fairly high (3 quid for Jaipur) for Sheffield, but still not close to Reading.

Should even get me to the station ahead of my train a few times, whether it'll help with actually catching them remains to be seen.

The Fox at Connaught, Silvertown

Bit of a drive-to only pub, unless you'r staying in the adjoining Travelodge. Beer choice very minimal, 1 pump of Deuchars, but 3.80 a pint to boot, it was OK for Deuchars. Free Wifi, decent terrace area, no soul. Won't willingly return, but if you're in ExCel and need to get lunch, it's probably better than Convention Centre options.

The Royal Standard, North Woolwich

Interesting paradox this place. Decorated with St George's crosses everywhere (you can have a guess what that may mean in this part of the world), staffed by Brazilian immigrant dancers, and no English beer.

Feels a bit run down. Front room you enter into is like a small public bar, with mixed clientele when I popped in mid afternoon, through a union jack curtain is a bigger "lounge bar" with the ladies. Not bad looking, but daytime without punters they weren' using the stage at all.
