The Crutched Friar, Tower Hill

I hadn't been here for years, and went with some friends today. It has certainly had a makeover in the intervening years! There was a good selection of ales, such as London Pride and Wadsworths 6X and some I hadn't seen before - about 6 in all. The prices are typical City prices. Being a Friday lunchtime the atmosphere was good. We had the sandwiches and chips for lunch, which were quite good, although probably not worth 8 quid. Service was friendly and efficient. I am sure that there are worse pubs around. Worth a visit.

The Bell, Walthamstow

We popped in here after the Old Rose and Crown. It is a bit of a hipster pub. I was not impressed with their £8 ploughman's lunch, which probably cost about a quid to produce. I think that minimalist is the word which describes it. Still. a nice selection of beers. We had the Ay-Up and Salopian, which is well kept.

The Rose and Crown, Walthamstow

A lovely traditional boozer, which my mate Simon, who knows the area, took me to. No poncy food, just good beer. I had an excellent pint of Eton and Windsor Guardsman, followed by a pint of Woodforde Wherry. Both pints were excellently kept. The pub features bands and, in the room upstairs, comedians. Sadly, this type of boozer is dying out: Blame the smoking ban, cheap supermarket booze and the preponderance of non-drinking Muslims in the area.
