The Molesworth Arms Hotel, Wadebridge

Visited for a pint and also stayed in the B&B accomodation upstairs. New owners (only been in 6 weeks) have got plans for the B&B side of things, enjoyed a pint with the locals in Alans Bar (you get a choice of three bars), a bit lively with the boys having been drinking all daylight hours of the bank holiday, but beer (Tinners) good quality. Centrally located, and a good breakfast in the restaurant, interesting old coaching inn features and stone floors.

The Raven, Bath

Possibly the best Sunday pint and pie I have ever had. It does'nt get much better than this. Raven Gold was off, so sampled the remaining local ales which were excellent. I can comment on the the female toilets, though compact, were clean and suggested a recent refurb. Go here, its cracking.

The Swan, Bank

Visited a couple of weeks ago after work on a Friday night, and had a great evening. The Fullers was well kept and the guest beer, Nottingham Gold, was super. We enjoyed the samples of beer before we committed ourselves, especially served in minature pint glasses. We felt very welcome, and spent most of the time in the upstairs bar with the ale lovers.

The Britannia Inn, Elterwater

A fantastic pub out of season on an Autumn evening. After a week sampling the staggering collection of draught ales, we plucked up the courage to eat local trout from the excellent menu, and ate in the front bar. It was good quality food, perfectly timed. I also recommend the fine Seabrookes crisps, which with a pint of Coniston Bluebird, is a perfect end to a day on the hills. Why, oh why, did I move South.

Jamie's, Canary Wharf

Visited recently for a 'team' do (despite not working anywhere near the place)and had to have Guinness as previous post, which was good quality, so not a total let down, and river views were great only spoiled by the building site and large blue hoarding next door. Conveniently placed for ferry for London Bridge. Ladies toilets in general state of disrepair and grubby. Won't be returning voluntarily.

Charterhouse, Smithfield

Found ourselves standing outside this place watching the Smithfield Nocturne Bicycle Race on Saturday, and ventured inside for refreshments. I agree with last post, great location, good outside pavement vibe, but when I have to resort to drinking overpriced Guiness instead of draught bitter, it always gets the thumbs down.

The Sloop Inn, St Ives

Initially daunted by the sheer scale of the place, we entered for lunch and a pint to wait out the April showers. A wierd mix of traditional style and bulk ordered furniture, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food more than anything, some of the best fish stew I've had outside of Portugal. Beers were well kept, and the best feature was the live webcam from the nearby beach, so you could see when it was safe to go outside again, genius!

The Tinners Arms, Zennor

We ate, drank and stayed here in April mid-week out of season and this pub won hands down out of the 7 B&B's we stayed in that week. The beer was excellent especially the Zennor Mermaid, another tick off the list. Food was great, a superb menu, not sheets of A4, well one sheet of A4 actually, and all excellent quality. We managed to stay awake to experience the live folk music, when they loosely arrived around 9pm, and rounded off the evening with great accomodation in the pubs own B&B, the White House, which was pure luxury after 8 miles hiking from Pendeen.

North Inn, Pendeen

We stayed B&B here in April, and took advantage of all the pubs facilities. Beer was excellent and well kept, but the selection of curries on the menu was amazing, especially after 8 miles on the South West Coast Path. Some of the finest food we sampled during a weeks walking. B&B accomodation was also excellent for walkers, and we watched the sun set from our balconies. Village had all the right facilities in the morning on the doorstep of the pub. Made note to return and try the campsite out the back.

Logan Rock Inn, St Levan

Staggered across the fields from our rural B&B to this pub, have been twice before for lunch but never for evening meal mid-week out of season. St Austell ales well kept, food was standard pub fare, keeping it simple. Service regarding food was poor, and we waited an hour for our food, even though only the bar contained the food eaters on a cool April evening, so no more than 5 tables worth. Cosy surroundings in the bar, good atmosphere.

Badger Inn, Lelant

Visited to try the Sunday lunch and carvery, and the first try of 'Proper Job' beer this Spring. Ale was good quality, and those who tried the carvery were impressed. Sat in the conservatory, which heats up a treat. Blip in service when it took 15 mins after ordering to tell us a dish was no longer available, but food quality was good on arrival.

Cornish Arms, Hayle

Agree with previous post, good solid pub food, quite refreshing after walking from St Ives and its pretentious refreshments. Great selection of ales and finely placed for the 15 min walk to the station. Finished the South West Coast Path here and looking forward to returning to the same pub next year for the next section.

The Gun, Coldharbour

We visited this pub last night and sat on the terrace, things were looking good when we ordered a selection of Adnams ales on draught, but made the fatal error of asking for an extra two minutes to order food, 20 minutes later we finally ordered. Food was good quality, if slightly overpriced (are we paying for the view?), but the service was just awful, it was as though we did'nt exist. I had to take a pint of Youngs back, as it was last from the barrel and full of floaty bits, and it took 15 minutes standing at the bar to get it changed. Where are all the staff? During the evening we saw three pints of Guiness being returned.... It took another 15 mins to pay, and release credit card from hostage, all in all, a disapointing night and I will not be returning.

The Albion, Barnsbury

We had our second visit (post refurb) last night for a meal and a pint, and once again the food was excellent and the Black Sheep on draft was well kept. The pub had a welcoming atmosphere (especially with the open fires), and last nights staff were polite and efficient. I think it is giving the Drapers Arms round the corner some stiff competition, but we still retired there for a pint of TT Landlord, with a preference for the more diverse selection of ales.
