The Angel, Old Street

Good boozer - krsone, or should that be Murph, I recall the Prodigy incident well, also when I forgot that you can't smoke in pubs anymore (think I'd had too many at that point!)

The Chandos, Trafalgar Square

Great location, and a good pub. The distinct lack of decent pubs in the centre of London makes The Chandos an appealing prospect, with its booth seating, and old school ambience.

As with all Sam Smith pubs, the fact that their beers etc. are all produced by their own brewery is both a strength and weakness. For while drinks are the cheapest you'll find anywhere in London, their lager is not of a high quality and tastes of nothing. The ales are decent, but the lack of any other familiar beers, or even guest ales that you might be tempted to try, is a definite minus. But overall, it's a good place to meet, at least before heading elsewhere, and the food is reputably of high quality.

The Woodbine, Highbury

This place has delusions of grandeur. Trendy decor? Check. Cool jukebox with appropriate proportions of classic rock and indie? Check. And they have Timothy Taylor Landlord on tap!

Sounds like a winner? Well unfortunately not. The staff are sullen at the best of times, moody on others (agreed DeliaSmith!) and the distinct lack of tables makes it difficult to find anywhere to sit. Not a terrible place by any means, but definitely not as good as everyone else says.
