The Bree Louise, Euston

If you are a real ale connosieur then I would heartily recommend a visit - if (like me) you aren't then really the pub is decidedly average - sorry. Hadn't been in since Jolly Gardeners incarnation and think I preferred it then. There is more to a Pub than it's choice of beers and there was nothing about the Bree Louise that would inspire my wife to suggest a return visit.

The Cross Keys, Covent Garden

Battled in through the snow yesterday at about 12:10 to find that along with a pensioner who entered at the same time as us we were the first customers of the day. So thanks to the weather it's the first time I've been in and had a pick of the seats. Pleasant barman who gave me the extra half pint of lager he'd pulled in error - 'It would just get chucked away otherwise'.

Was pleased to see custom pick up later as some of the regulars appeared to have braved the journey into work despite the warnings.

Still one of my favourite London pubs.

The Crown Tavern, Clerkenwell

Really like this pub but I'd find it difficult to tell you why. Found by accident last year at six on a Saturday evening late in October after leaving the Seckforde Arms - which I was supposed to have liked more than I did. The Seckforde that night unfortunately was as dead as they come and I felt (unusually) a bit out of place. After leaving early and with time to kill I popped in here and the difference couldn't have been greater. Struggled to find a seat with loads of people in the 'back room' playing board games, plenty of life. Felt right. Felt comfortable. Brought my wife in the following night, something I don't normally do (visit a pub twice in the same London trip - not take the wife out!) and although it was after ten on a Sunday night was still lively. Returned again this month and the place is definetly growing on me. Nice one.
