The Londesborough, Stoke Newington

Michelin Stars...

Cleary this user has never been to a Michelin Starred Restaurant. You'd be looking at a lot more than 16 for a main.

What some pub-goers don't realise is that the hospitality industry is very transient and managers, chefs and staff move jobs, hence inconsistency in service and food quality.

I quite like the Londesborough, it was one of the first pubs I drank in in Stoke Newington when i moved there in 02. Good pub, even though I rather ridiculously got asked to leave after Stoke Fest last summer. Apparently being a bar-maid's ex-boyfriend is a legitimate reason to refuse service...

The Birdcage, Stoke Newington

I do believe the Cage is returning to its glory days. Hurrah! The colour is getting better bit by bit. The drinks are great, the staff are friendly. Bit of a shame if you forget it's quiz night, stumble in and were wanting a chat, but that's the luck of the draw I guess. What's this: a lock on the toilet door, a mirror in the Gents? Hand dryer is still crap though. i'm currently out of town and can't wait to get back for a few xmas drinks or ten.

The Woodbine, Highbury

They are now doing roasts on Sunday, and they did this bank holiday Monday too. A round 10 quid for one of three roasts, Rib of beef, organic corn fed chook, and I assume it was loin of pork, but could've been lamb, can't remember. Proper portions, proper gravy (jus?)Tasty and worth every penny, friendly service from the waiteress too,
