The Jugged Hare, City of London

I registered this pub on BITE for the following reason:-

When I visited with a colleague I ordered a drink for her and a gin and tonic for myself, before we continued our conversation at the bar. When I turned to pick up my drink, I realised that some tonic had already been poured in by the barman, and that the drink was extremely strong. I asked if I had been served a double, and the barman said "Yes". "But I wasn't asked if I wanted a double" I protested, to be told, "It's our policy - we only serve doubles". I insisted on only paying for a single, and this was finally agreed to.

What a sharp and shabby practice by managers and staff who have no concept of customer service or retention!

Willow, Winchmore Hill

Much to no one's surprise, The Willow is now CLOSED.

It turned out that people didn't want to meet and drink in what seemed like a 1970's working man's club on 'Cabaret Nite'!

Who'd have thought eh?

The Oliver Conquest, Whitechapel

After years of waiting, we finally have a pub really worth visiting in Aldgate. As someone else commented, the Oliver Prospect has a nice relaxed, easy-going atmosphere with staff who (and here's an unusual thing!) seem genuinely pleased to see you.

I understand that in the past under previous management, this place had been one to avoid, but the new licencees have given it a really fresh makeover and the nice mix of locals and city folk rub along well together. Most of us drunk the very good Timmy Taylor and the landlady's homemade bar food, particularly the range of scotch eggs, really hit the mark when we wanted good ale, good atmosphere and finger food rather than a meal from the main menu!
