The Plough, West Sutton

If ever a pub deserved to be bulldozed to make way for a Tesco Express then it's this place. Truly awful. The punters wouldn't know what a good pub is if it bit them on the backside. The same could be said for those who run this shambles of a boozer. Real ale lovers will have a better chance of finding a decent pint in the middle of the Sahara. I had to resort to ordering a pint of Stella and even then I was told it wasn't on draught and had to drink two bottles of the fizzy stuff. Terrible beyond words. It pains me to say it, but this has been a pub in decline for too long. Close it down.

The Bunch of Grapes, London Bridge

The BoG is a nice pub serving Youngs ales, but it's nothing special. I got chatting to a few American tourists who were keen to tell me just how much they love a traditional old English boozer. They can do better than this; there are so many interesting pubs in this part of London. This is a one pint pub - drink it, enjoy it but don't hang around, move on. That said, landmark enthusiasts will be pleased to know it's near London Bridge station, Southwark Cathedral, and the Shard. Woohoo.

The Bishop's Finger, Barbican

I had a very nice night at the Bishops Finger, catching up with an old pal over five pints of Shepher Neame's Bishops Finger ale. It's a tidy yet small pub, with a function room upstairs. The staff were pleasant despite being rushed off their feet. The beer, which included Spitfire and Master Brew, was very nice as you would expect but I made the schoolboy error of not eating before hitting the booze. The result was the worst hangover I've had in years. I was as sick as a dog.
