The Oak and Pastor, Archway

These reviews have been hijacked by staff, which is a real shame and totally ruins this site.

Anyway, went in there on Saturday, beer was ok, not great, layout is fine, decor is half tasteful period style, half ikea shite.

Going for dinner soon so we'll see how the food is but for now, they should be ashamed that they've been bumping up their own scores.

CASK Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico

I just found a receipt in my pocket from yesterday's drinnks in the Cask... 4.60 for a pint of Dark Star IPA.

Visited after seeing John Martin at the Tate. A good selection of laughably overpriced ales on the pumps (why can the Wenlock Arms offer the same variety of cask ales for around the 3 mark?), and some of the worst decor I've ever seen in a pub. Made the most of it though and sampled the Cosmic, Dark Star and Acorn IPA's, all of which were in immaculate condition (whch you'd expect at these prices, in fact at these prices I'd expect an extra half thrown in for good measure). The staff were friendly and attentive.

Seemed to have a plethora of trappist beers, and ciders too, if that's your thing. Tbe hand-cut chips were great and the food looked good. I wouldn't return though due to the high prices, nasty interior and lack of atmosphere.

Ps I can confirm that several rugby-shirted toffs were in attendance, braying loudly about the Tory party's regeneration and probably buggery in the quads.

Trafalgar Tavern, Greenwich

Been a few times, and like this place very much. It's never actually been that busy when I've been here, and I've bagged a window seat relatively easily. Always offers well-kept beers with the option to try. The dining area was the only part of the place laid up for diners, and this was seperate enough so as not to imping on the atmosphere of the pub side. I have ordered food from the bar a few times and it has always been great. If you're into engravings there are loads and loads of wonderful examples on the walls. Spent the evening of Feb 2nd 2001 here, the night the whole of london was snowed in, and it was great to look out onto the river with the blizzard descending.

A winner!
