Easter Beer Festival kicks off t omorrow!

The Pillars of Hercules, Soho

Popped in here last night & can say with hand on heart, the ale here was shocking.

Tried three pints by Thwaites, St Austell & Timmy Taylor & all were poor, especially the Thwaites which was undrinkable. The quality of the beer overshadowed the short measures.

Fortunately, I had popped into the Old Fountain prior to the Pillars!

Thursday night - lovely pint of Crouch Vale 'Brewers Gold', followed by several pints of Nethergate 'Young Howler' which was a very good substitute for the Augustinian.

If you likek a good honest pub that serves a good honest pint, look no further.

Coach and Horses, Fleet Street

Dear oh dear - only one hand pump on last night Greene KIng 'London Glory'. Not a good pint at all - dull as ditch water.

The Red Cow, Ilford

Have been told today that this pub is now closed & boarded up.

A real shame, as it was a quality pub, with a great landlord.

Does anyone have any idea as to what happened?

Coach and Horses, Fleet Street

Now under new ownership.

Popped in last night & was impressed with the new paintwork & general feel of the place.

Feel encouraged to start using this pub again on a more regular basis.

Good luck to the new owners.

Oakham Ales - J.H.B on last night & very nice it was too :-)

The Chequers, Billericay

Theakstons 'Masham Ale' was a decent pint last night, and the Youngs was in tip top condition (as were the female santa claus & the red head behind the bar).

The Old Fountain, Old Street

Popped in on Tuesday night on my way to the Scala. Saddened to see that the beer garden has now gone.

Times are a changing.

Did somebody mention burgers?

The Compton Arms, Islington

Popped in here on Thursday night before going to the Garage, and the IPA & Bonkers Conkers were on good form. Nice friendly pub with a good mix of people. Gig finished early, so it seemed rude not to drop back into the Compton on the way home.

Popped in on Thursday night - Mighty Oak 'Captain Bob' was in tip top condition. Several pints later, and I was very contented.

Hope to catch the Beer Festival on Monday.

The Old Fountain, Old Street

Absolutely gutted that Paul has now left - he really did make a BIG change to this place. When I first started drinking in this pub back in '89, you had a choice of London Pride or London Pride. I really do hope that we do not go back to those days again.

Good luck to you Paul, and thanks.

Happy New Year to all associated with The Viper. Hope to get a few more visits in during 2010.

Surely the best pub in Essex?

Happy New Year to everyone associated with the Old Fountain. See you in 2010.

The Old Fountain, Old Street

Good beer as always on Monday evening. Credit due to Jim, Paul & David.

A tad concerned though about some of the CAMRA followers who attend this pub now. Please, just enjoy the quality ale on offer, in an unspoilt London pub & stop whinging.

20 years on & still enjoying the place.

Nice couple of pints last night - Darling Buds and Naked Ladies.
Always look forward to visiting the Fountain.

The White Hart Inn, Margaretting Tye

This is more of a 'foodies' pub, but none the less, it does have a good selection of real ales.

Have to agree with hogshead though - for a more traditional pub, the Viper would be my choice too.

VIPA was in tip top condition, as was the Tring Brewery 'Blonde' on Wednesday evening. Well kept beer, nice surroundings....bloody nice!

This is one of the best , if not the best pub that you will ever visit. Was a regular from '89-'97 and still pop in whenever I get the chance. Congratulations to Jim, Paul and all associated with making this place so very special.

The Chequers, Billericay

Second visit to this pub on Sunday evening
Only three ales on: OP, Christmas Ale and Youngs. Opted for Youngs and it was in pretty good shape.

This place was transformed once Paul arrived. No disrespect intended Jim!
The quality of beer here is now fantastic and the variety excellent.
Always look forward to re-visiting this place.

Queens Head, Coventry

Used to frequent this pub when I lived in the area (Pickford).
Always found it to be a really friendly place & the beer was always in top notch condition.
Being a Londoner, it was joy to find that pubs like this one still existed!
