The Prince Albert, Camden

The beer, black sheep, was good here but the food left much to be desired. Old, reheated and over cooked with poor, grumpy service . Shame as it is a good location and nice building. G

The Telegraph at The Earl of Derby, New Cross

Our second visit was as as good as the first. The London Pride was delicious and our meal was from fresh ingredients cooked to order. So many places now seem to pre cook the food and just fry or reheat to serve. Both times at the Telegraph we have had very well cooked meals at a reasonable price.

We live miles away but will definitely be going back regularly to drink and eat. It is a treat to get good beer, fresh food and a relaxing atmosphere in well thought out surroundings.

Probably not original bar back but obviously old and rescued from another pub of old. The church pews are attractive and the large map blends in well.

All the pubs in this group are lovingly restored and on the whole serve good beer but alas this is the only one with decent food. A real gem.

The Londesborough, Stoke Newington

Our visit tonight for dinner was a big disappointment. The beer was very good but the food was very poor.

Over cooked, old oil tasting chips. Battered fish even Captain Birdseye would reject and odd tasting peas that were mashed (not mushy). A pie with a very under cooked, limp crust and gloopy innards served with 'Smash' like mash. The only redeeming feature was the perfectly cooked broccoli.

Only beer for us in this place from now on. At the prices they are charging there is no excuse it could be so much better.
