Mount Ambrose Inn, Mount Ambrose

This is one of the best pubs in Cornwall. Full marks from me. Cheap, no-nonsense, good beer, great people and a pool table.

The Oxo Tower Bar, Southbank

Shockingly poor.

I phoned up earlier this week as I was taking my wife out on a surprise night out in the area and I wanted to know (a)if they had a bar with river views and (b)if they had any live jazz (as was advertised on their website). I was told that they had both, when in actual fact, I found out on arrival, they had neither.

The bar area is actually at the back of the building, so affords a decent view of Stamford Street (ie. the arse end of SE1, ie. rubbish). Plus it has around the same kind of decor, atmosphere and general feel of a fairly low class airport lounge.

To be fair, the cocktails were superb, but also really stupidly overpriced - I suppose the idea is to appeal to the aspirational sheep who feel that being seen at such a 'top-notch Harvey Nicks type joint' is more important than good service, nice surroundings or not being lied to by the bar manager.

The food looked right poncy too. Never going back.
