Woodies, New Malden

Come to this pub most weekends as it is a pleasant oasis in the suburban sprawl of south west London. Even some of the knuckle dragging locals with their aggressive hounds can't spoil it; however, the abrupt barman who barked at my 12yo old son "no children allowed at the bar" as he was waiting to help me carry the drinks outside have ensured lost customers. Of course the Licensing Act says no such thing, it is just the landlord's own made up rule but as it is clear they don't want children in the establishment I will happily go elsewhere. Obviously the landlord is too dense to realise that the margin on children's drinks is far more than on alcoholic ones.

The Living Room, Mayfair

Pleasant evening ruined by being shortchanged by bar staff. Handing over 40 for a 24 round to be given 1 change. Difficult to see how two brand new 20 notes can be mistaken for a 20 and a 5. Manager cashed up the till and announced it was 5 over, not the 15 it should have been. Wonder where the other 10 went?

Silent Woman, Coldharbour

Returned to the local campsite this year with party of 11 adults and 7 children and took great pride in dissuading any of them from contemplating this pub. The Weld Arms in East Lulworth, by contrast, bent over backwards to accommodate us all. Our party alone spent best part of 1K there that the Silent Woman would have had but for their policy, not counting any other campers we talked to about it. Naturally the landlord may adopt whatever rules he wishes but he's never going to get on Dragon's Den if he's too dense to establish what his best market is. And HenPen is spot on with the law - it is simply a lie to pretend that children are not allowed inside the pub "by law".
