Use of Ann O's undercrackers as curtains (thus rendering the pool table unusable - pitch dark conditions).

The Old Bell, Fleet Street

Preserved (to a degree) by virtue of its Grade II listed status; the OB retains some vestige of English character, (a tragically scarce quantity on 2009 vintage Fleet Street). The beer's good but the food's formulaic - bland to the nth degree. Still, you won't go far wrong quaffing 8 pints of Timmy and a (now virtual) pickled egg if you've an hour to spare of a lunch time. The atmosphere’s convivial and the crowd's eclectic – pompous, NPD-racked wine-bores jostle for position at the bar with mortar-caked builders and overpaid primary school teachers. Some queer old buzzards number amongst the regulars; they'll regale you with the local legend of 'monsieur rat lumière' in return for a half of Russian. Well worth a visit.

The Glass House, St Albans

Good food and beer. Bar billiards. Wooden panels. Open fire. Horse brasses... The Acorn was a great pub. It's all gone now...
