The Blind Beggar, Whitechapel

Finally visited this pub after intending to do so for years with it being the Krays and Jack the Rippers old hunting ground. Not much evidence of the past so not too touristy. The beer was OK, service was good and quick and I liked the beer garden out back. Decent pub to pop into if you are on your way to Upton Park for the footy (as I did) and nice enough for a few cold beers in the afternoon on a summers day...

The Railway Tavern, Forest Gate

Popped in here for a pint after going to the football a few Saturdays back. Very run down but that did not bother me as it served its purpose. Not bad prices at �3 a beer (compared to what I pay down in South London) and the service was quick and efficent. They had a pool table out back and were showing live football which are always bit pluses. If I am in the area again I would have no problem popping in again for a pint.

The Nightingale, Balham

Made my firts visit to The Nightingale last night and it lived up to everything that it claimed to be. A very nice pub, good old fashioned, typical English pub interior and a lovely beer garden at the back. Two excellent dart boards, one inside by the entrance and one out at the back. The bar staff were very friendly giving service with a smile (makes such a difference) whilst they had a good selection of beers and excellent brand of port scratchings. It is just a 7 minute walk to Clapham South tube. The pub has an average quiz machine and it did have an outside TV but was not turned on so I am sure if they show sports, however they were advertising the Rugby World Cup. I for one will definetely be going back and feel this is probably the best pub in Clapham South area....
