The St Johns Tavern, Archway

Keep coming back here every few months, as a friend not far away. Mid week always easy enought to grab a table. Then to work through the 3 beers they have on (plus range of others if you so desire). Not the cheapest, around 3.80 a pint, but the staff DO always rewash the glasses to ensure cold when beer goes in. Nice touch.

As others say, food is good, but pricey. 1.85 for a croquette makes a change from packet of crisps.

The Craft Beer Co, City of London

Heard about from Morning Advertiser, and was in the area...

As the other reviews say, vast selection of beer, all of those we drank in good condition. Both hand pulled and keg. As this selection (and don't get started on the bottles) enough to cover all palettes.

Pricing very simple - based on the ABV. This does mean some of the specials (like the creme brule) at 11% are 5 for a half, but then, it does all make sense.

Spot the own branded glasses - all oversize to allow for an appropriate head as desired. Plus they do samples. All makes this a MUST for a real beer drinker. Add to the crawl with the Euston Tap. We'll be back.

The George, London Bridge

It's summer. An ideal time to wander round the streets sauff of the river. Especially when there are so many in close proximity around Borough Market.

As other say, and you can tell from the pictures, this is not a 'new' pub. It's split over many levels and rooms, with a great courtyard laid out with tables. Ideal for a drink in the warmth.

Downside is that smoking is allowed outside, and with the other buildings (out of character with this) form a sqaure to trap the smoke. Something we are not used to these days with a smoking ban inside of pubs in place. However, there are a number of tables.

I have not yet mentioned the beer. Ah. Choice of around 4 on draft plus range of lagers as usual. There is even their own badged house ale. You will have plenty of time to admire this whilst waiting at an empty of customers bar, with staff just wandering around 'doing things'. It made up for the short measures when eventually someone could be bothered to serve, which as it tuened out was fine. As the beer (we tried 2 different ones) was brown. We did not finish them.

GREAT location/venue to see as a tourist/local and admire. A MUST on this score. But if you want a drink, there are plenty of others nearby having this on tap.
