Be At One, Old Street

Fortunately the beer was working the night I went...
Obviously not the place to go for a quiet night comparing ales, but for a lively party atmosphere this place really hits the spot. Friendly staff and customers all having a good time in an intersting venue with good music = great night out.

Kensington Arms, Kensington

What a fabulous place! This is one of the few pubs I've been in that has pulled off the clean, modern look successfully..... without having ropey "art" from local egotists plastered around the walls. Anyway, back to the important stuff. As the previous commentor noted, not your usual range for a west London joint, but everything I tried was kept beautifully - and I, for the record, preferred the Doom Bar, a very suppable pint. But in keeping with the area, I tried the London Pride too, and it was as good a pint of it as I've had in any Fuller's pub.

Food - the Sunday roast I had was excellent. Gorgeous beef, and enough veggies with it for about 3 people. However, the sausage and mash I had during the week was a bit of a let-down; OK, very tasty, but 11? Come off it!

The staff, however, I found to be excellent. Alex is, as the previous poster noted, as knowledgable a manager as you're likely to find, and seems to be on a mission to deliver a drinking nirvana (except for if he disagrees with your choice of drink - then he will let you know in no uncertain terms what he thinks is wrong and what you should have instead). Everyone else was very friendly and helpful, so what more could you want?

Oh yeah, lots of screens for the football too :)
