The Montagu Pyke, Charing Cross Road

Saw Monty Pythons Life of Brian in there when it was a cinema, and a few Heavy Metal bands when it was the Marquee club back in the early 80's.

I can only say that the atmosphere back then was far better than it is in there now! There was empty glasses and finished meal dishes on a lot of empty tables, and I ended up taking the empties from my table and getting a cloth from the bar staff to clean it after ordering my pint.

The Isis Tavern, Iffley Lock

Thomas Henry, how dare you dall me a Troll, you ignoramous.

I've been visiting The Isis since childhood, and drinking in The Isis since the tender age of 18 years, I'm now 52. I've seen The Isis going from a little gem of a pub to what it is now! It's an absolute travesty at what has happened to it! It used to be filled with memorabilia of all sorts from all the Universities, some dating back to the early 1900's, and as a local it used to be a real pleasure to sit by the bar listening to the laughter, watching bar billiards, hearing the sound of wood against wood as people played Aunt Sally out the back, yes it used to be lovely sitting there supping a pint in those lovely surroundings.

Not any more! It's now a pitiful broken down empty shell and completely lacking in feeling, and I only wish that someday someone will take it over, see it for the gem of a pub it really is, and change it back to it's former glory.
