The Fine Line, Clapham Junction

Looks like Becks has replaced Carling as the downgrade lager in this place. I now pay 3.35 for the opportunity to drink this stuff.

Again, three pints for under a tenner. You're in the wrong place. RE: my below comment about the price of the coke. Last week, a Becks and a blackcurrant & soda (pint of) came to 4.90. 1.55 for a dash of cordial?! I must be helping to pay for all those damn clocks on the wall. Turn it back to a proper bank I say.

The Hope, Wandsworth Common

Re the below comment, John has certainly not wasted his time on this pub... he's spent the last two years down the road on Battersea Rise looking after The Goat (formerly O'Neils)!

During that time The Hope fell to bits; the gents were nasty, paper was peeling off the ceiling above the staircase to the bar. I don't go in often anymore, but when I did go in on a regular basis (a few times a month) I would still not be able to recognise any of the bar staff. The women can't reach the pumps because their flab is hanging out and the blokes cannot serve you quick enough because they all wear their jeans round their ankles.

The makeover before this summer though has brought with it a grandfather clock and some curtains inside (why?) and, dare I say it, an improvement to the outside with big plants breaking up the space.

The Hope now has it's own website, with a good sprinkling of appalling grammar. If it wasn't for its location, I think JD Wetherspoon would have snapped up this site by now.

Maybe you should go and make up you own mind about this place. Oh, and as the "A sign" used to say outside, "We serve food dialy".

A pint in here is not worth 2.60.

The Nightingale, Balham

A great pub. So I understand they have already once turned away the Young's interior design crew, and the place is all the better for it. Perhaps the only change I have seen in there is the updating of the beer garden with the partly covered section and solid furniture.

Friendly staff. I never wait long to be served in here. Sometimes in Northcote road I think my thirst would be quenched quicker if I walked up the road to this pub.
