Ye Old Mitre, Holborn

In two minds whether to post a review - the pub's brilliant and more people should know about it; but it's also quite busy enough already and it's the sort of place you should have to discover for yourself. Top notch Adnams and a good, always changing selection of guest ales; scotch eggs and pork pies for snacks. It's been surrounded by scaffolding for nearly a year now but that's good in a way: it provides shelter from the rain when you're inevitably standing outside in the early evening. Love it. One of the top five pubs in London.

The Royal Oak, Borough

Best pub in London. Simple food but until late (9pm) - including death-defying double ham sandwiches. Harveys bitter, which is pretty much otherwise unobtainable in London, kept really well and with all of their seasonal brews too. Pretty interior, plenty of seating space. Has all the hallmarks of a good pub, including a payphone by the bar which doesn't work (and a sarcastic note posted above). Mixed bunch of drinkers - always seem to be a lot of runners in there; always good staff.

The Earl Ferrers, Streatham

Looks good - dark wood, green inside. Tasty pint of Pride. Feels as though it should be gastro, but only snacks on the menu. There is a pool table, which would usually be a bad thing, but it's sectioned off from the rest of the pub. Very quiet when we were there.
