    don't ask for sandwiches, they give you a dirty look. if you can take the scorn they're lovely though.

    A kind of ugly sister to the Wenlock Arms, but charming, and full of beer you've never heard of.

    New carpet. Coat of paint. It's no upmarket swanky joint but by gosh, it's quality craft beer and it still feels like a boozer.

    Try the Cherry Beer and other assorted wonderful fruit beers. And the potato wedges are the best.

    Great rooftop bar with heated lamps and lots of seating! Just go through the dark door in the back. Also, the hipster bartender will give you a half pint of beer if you ask for a taste.

    One of the best pubs in London. Friendly service and so many different cask ales every week. Even play the twin peaks theme tune occasionally. Very underrated pub that deserves a visit!
