The Eagle, Shepherds Bush

A pleasant surprise of pub. Obviously recently done out and still the right side of quirky rendy. Service was swift and beer drinkable - should be said that although it was a Saturday night, it was empty but that's London in August.

Food looked unpretentious and well priced and generally was reasonably impressed. Do agree that the garden needs a clean up, but is still a very attractive feature.

The Raven, Stamford Brook

This pub feels oddly out of place in leafy West London. It feels like it should be in Shoreditch and Stoke Newington. It's minimalist mix of old furniture, unpolished rough floors and bare brick walls certainly mean it is not like anywhere else in the area.

On the plus side the beer was good and service swift, however I felt that the place could do with a bit of effort spent on cleaning it up. I'm not talking turning it into an All Bar One, but the toilets need a decent clean, the back room smelt musty and the furniture may look trendy to some but I felt the place looked a bit down at heel.

You need different sorts of pubs for different people, and I can see how this attractive to some, but for me it is not a must visit and certainly not a potential regular haunt.

I bet it would go down very well in Camden, but I'm not a Camden type of punter.

The Anglesea Arms, Hammersmith

I have now eaten in the Anglesea and all I can say about the food is stunning. I mean really something else, I still can't believe how good it was.

This has to be one of the best pubs in all of London for food and in all other respects, I just wish I lived nearer.
