The Rake, London Bridge

Flying visit here for lasties en route to London Bridge station after a performance of 12th Night at the Globe. A superb pint of Hawkshead Windermere Pale and the various comments from brewers scrawled on the walls definitely an encouraging sign - in short I'll agree with zabadak on a tentative 7/10 pending a repeat visit with a little more time to perform a more "comprehensive quality control test" on their wares.

The Maypole Inn, Long Preston

We booked and stayed at the Maypole arriving Thursday 21 and departing Saturday 23 June 2012 with our choice entirely based on the reviews below – this proved a very wise move indeed as this is an absolute gem of a pub - excellent ale, excellent food, extremely friendly locals and a very warm welcome from the staff who really couldn’t do enough for us. Sadly our attempt at the 3 Peaks was thwarted by extraordinarily inclement weather (I could’ve sworn I saw the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse galloping over the summit of Ingleborough but I digress), nevertheless this proved an ideal venue to dry out on the outside and get suitably damp on the inside – we look forward to returning for a rematch.

O'Neills, Soho

My band play here every other Sunday night and I have to say it's very much one of our favourite regular gigs - fantastic atmosphere and really up for it crowd - great craic all round.

OK - the sheer size of the place, the West End location and the predominantly tourist clientele mean it's never going to feel like a cosy local (the Blue Posts is probably the closest you'll get around here) but we've always been well looked after - service quick and efficient, nice Guinness on the few occasions when I haven't had to drive (I find it a seriously "more-ish" beverage) and the door staff have always been perfectly courteous and very helpful when we're shifting equipment in and out (lugging guitars and amplifiers through a room packed to the gills with inebriated punters can be a stressful experience at the best of times).

Definitely the most fun you can have in central London on a Sunday night with your clothes on :-)
