The Queens Head, St Pancras

This is the place to go when you need a drink before catching a train at Kings Cross - and probably letting at least one train go so you can try another beer.
It is my idea of a local with 3 handpumps (one for Redemption Trinity - a 3% but very flavoursome beer) and two ever changing, stronger beers. Also does ciders and craft beers (again varies but Weird Beard & Buxton amongst others). Food is cold cheese or meat variants - the cheese sandwiches are excellent enormous doorsteps! No piped music / TV but music nights and a piano on occasion - well, the piano is there all the time but it occasionally has someone playing it. Also has board games.
Definite 8/10!

The Lord Moon Of The Mall, Whitehall

It's a Wetherspoons. Its certainly not the worst or most desperate Wetherspoons & the building itself is impressive. The beer is usually too cold but it's drinkable and there's often a couple of unusual beers. It's always busy with tourists although it always amuses me to see groups of tourists who wander in, walk around a bit and then wander out again. Why?
An average 6/10.

The Harp, Covent Garden

Great pub with a great range of constantly changing beer. Always a mix of dark / light beers, strengths & breweries although usually something from Dark Star (Hophead or APA). Prices for the centre of London are reasonable.
Downstairs is always packed as is the little alleyway at the back. However the upstairs lounge often empties out and you can take advantage of armchairs and a view out onto Whitehall.
Not sure when Fullers are going to turn it into another dull and overpriced central London pub (like the Red Lion in Whitehall or, frankly, The Parcel Yard at Kings X) - supposedly they have also got their hands on the Albannach across Trafalgar Square so I really can't see the point unless they are buying everything just to stop anyone else.
8/10 while it's still good!
