Westow House, Crystal Palace

I went last Sunday to watch the Chelsea v Liverpool game - my first visit for about five years.
Upon entering, I was glad to see a few real ales on draught - I drank the Young's Ordinary which was fine and was also served in a nice old-fashioned tankard which you don't often get.
We managed to get seats in front of the screen for the game and the atmosphere was good without being too packed.
The downside? Not too much. The staff were quite slow but to be fair a lot of people were ordering food. It seems to be the sort of place where the customers pay using credit cards. Well that's young people for you - try cash, it's a lot simpler. We also had to ask twice for the commentary to be turned on once the match had started. Unfortunately the sound went off as soon as the game had finished which was quite annoying.
Overall a good pub and would visit again if I was in the area.

The Masons Arms, Marylebone

Now apparently re-opened as a gastropub called the Portman.
I haven't visited yet but I presume the fantastic interior has been ripped out.
I hope I'm wrong.

The Spyglass Inn, Ventnor

I sat outside and had a couple of beers in the sun which was very pleasant.
The barman was both friendly and knowledgeable and let me sample one of the beers. Both beers I had were in excellent condition.
I didn't try the food although it looked OK if you like everything to come with a chip mountain.
