Three Hullats, Chapel Allerton

I really miss this pub having moved to London. Lovely big place, always room, well lit with cosy little nooks and crannies. A typical Wetherspoons in some ways. A pint of Stella was 2.50 (subject to change) and beer (and lager) always tip-top condition. The old-boy regular punters shuffled in from about nine in the morning, some dedication. On Saturday nights they made way for families having a meal together before the teenagers left for the wilds of Leeds city centre leaving mum and dad behind. The staff did the kind of job only possible if you really enjoy the job. Always clean and always with a smile. Food was at a good standard. If only all pubs were like this.

INDO, Whitechapel

Ah INDO. Easy to find, its right opposite the East London mosque. I used to go in here with regularity but the unpredictability in service has been too much to bear. I've had great nights in here; a DJ playing ska 7"s on a turntable on the bar, drinks flowing, dancing and much merriment. Likewise there has been surly to non-existent service and the dreadful smell of the lavatories. There seems to be an increase wrong'uns hanging about outside recently but I may just give it a go again soon.

The Queens Arms, South Kensington

I've been going to the Queens Arms on and off for ten years or so, it's got a great location, sadly the classic car garage opposite has seen it's last days. During term time there's a mix of students from Imperial and the RCA there, a lot of museum staff too. Sadly, you can't help but feel it could try harder these days. Firstly there is a the dodgy (i.e. not working) pay-to-use cash machine in the corner, this is Kensington not Kingston! The place could do with a lick of paint and a check on the drains too. Still the place was quiet and the rainy Saturday afternoon was cheered up by the incredibly posh old couple enjoying a fish and chip supper who we chatted for an hour or so. Will no doubt visit again, hopefully it will be better next time.
