The Northcote, Clapham Junction

Dont know why this place has a low score - guess it's past still gets included. Since the refurb, this is a fine place to go for a beer or two. I had Sambrooks last time - and noting it hadn't travelled far, it was very tasty. Place gets busy at weekends and when there is sport on; but it's friendly at quiet times.

The Bell, Skenfrith

Gastropub with a decent line of local beers and wines - Wye Valley bitter was nice and tasty. Olde world styling but very comfortbale.
More for foodies, but a warm welcome and attentive service. Great location and place to go for a meal or Sunday lunch if on holiday in the area. Probably best to book ahead or turn up early- as it was packed by the time we left.
Prices not too bad either.

The Bull's Head, Craswall

Sought this place out after a morning in the hills. Wished we hadn't bothered. Really felt as though the landlady wished we hadn't bothered either.
Begrudginly served our drinks - although I think she was hoping we'd decide to leave after she'd told us we were too late to have food. She only had one beer on (I forget the name) - I would have tried it had there been time - but I needed a thirst quencher first and the bar closed on us.
Limited opening hours (I think closed on Monday, Tuesday and Sunday evenings, then only open 12-3 and 6-11 the rest of the time.
This pub is in an ideal location and should be a dream destination for walkers in need of ale; but if it is always run this way then I'd be suprised if it survives.
