The Pilot Inn, North Greenwich

I haven't been to this pub for a couple of years. One good thing is, the quality of the beer has stayed the same. I had a very pleasant pint of Seafarer's ale.
I used to enjoy the cosy and comfortable feel in this pub. Unfortunately the refurb has completely taken the charm away. Very much a generic "brand identity" look. It's not unpleasant but it is soulless.
As with too many pubs the focus seems to be on food. There is a large restaurant area downstairs that was completely empty, as there is less seating than there used to be, we had to sit in here. I can't help thinking a pub should focus mainly on drink with good quality pub food as an added bonus.
Another strange idea was the drinks menu. Surely that's what the bar is for? I would also question, considering the area the pub is in, selling a bottle of Port for £65.
What a shame the brewery couldn't keep the good stuff about this pub while subtly updating it.
Two years ago I would've given this pub at least 9/10, now, it would be 6/10

Hop Poles, Brighton

Great little pub. Came down to Brighton to enjoy the sun with my girlfriend. Fancied a pint and a bite to eat. Very nice pint of Brains Le Peleton. The pulled pork sandwich I had was pukka. Nice small courtyard out the back. Decent music playing. Really can't speak highly enough of this pub.

The Clarence, Whitehall

This pub was a big disappointment. Looks good inside and out but the ale was bland,the atmosphere was non-existent and the thing I dislike most in pubs,reserved tables. The menu looked ok. One last thing,the music was bloody awful.
