The Duke of Edinburgh, Brixton

Seems to change hands frequently. Lived in Ferndale Road fifteen years ago when Frank Henley (I think) ran it and was a frequent visitor over the proceeding years. The beer had got very pricey and has thankfully come down a bit. I had stopped going here because the bitter was frequently off or sour and the Guinness often fizzy. Popped in a week ago and the bitter was better so hope it will be better kept by current Landlady. PS not keen on paying to use a debit card. Garden great in the summer and at least its still a proper pub.

The New Rose, Islington

Popped in on way back from Rosemary Branch and thought how much nicer the New Rose was. Quick service, good choice of well kept beers, roaring fire and nice ambiance - all three generations enjoyed being there. Will definitely return.

The Rosemary Branch, Islington

Only staff member truly terrible. Asked him whether they sold sparking wine "no" was the answer as he disappeared round the corner only to reappear several minutes later to pick up his mobile phone then clear off again. On return had no idea of who had been waiting an served the pushiest. When we go a glass of red it was stale as the bottle had been open too long. Considering the prices charged I would expect better quality and service. Theatre was good - just go somewhere else for pre and post drinks
