The Dolphin Tavern, Bloomsbury

Tiny, often busy in the evening, often empty at Lunch. It offers a welcome alternative to the Enterprise over the road. A good 'old man pub' with decent beer and no pretensions. Well worth knowing about if you spend time in the area.

Pig and Whistle, Ladbroke Grove

This is (in fact) an old man's pub. Large flat screen TVs with the sound off, nothing approaching a real ale, some old men with dogs, and some sullen youths playing pool. A friendly Irish barmade, so friendly in fact that chatting with the locals ranks slightly higher than serving strangers.

I dare say it gets busy on on Friday nights, but on Monday night it was quiet enough for a drink. Which ever way you look at it, it's a pretty crap pub, but it's not pretentious, it's cheap, and they serve things like crisps instead of wasabi rice snacks drizzled with extra virgin smugness.

Prince Arthur, Euston

It's an unassuming pub that's really pretty nice, and has decent beer and food. It's handy for lunch but can get full. It looks pretty shabby from the outside, but don't let that put you off. It's lengths ahead of any of the other local pubs, and is the obvious choice if you need to meet near Euston station.

Look out for the peculiar paintings on the wall. They are for sale, but regrettably no-one has bought any...
