The Royal Oak, Borough

Dearest anonymous,

I've been drinking ale for much too long now. I have, just since January 1st of 2006, enjoyed over 200 real ales. I certainly did not mean to disparage the fine name of Harvey's as they are a worthy addition to the world of real ale; if these ales are so wonderful, then the landlord and staff must not TAKE CARE of the ale that they serve (which is MUCH worse!). The Olympia tasted like an American lager, the bitter was bland and had no finish. The pale ale and porter were standard for their genres.

I, of course, admit that my bad experience at this pub could have been 'unusual' but as this pub was sought out based on the reviews on this site, I felt it necessary to let everyone know that not ALL experiences are good.

Oh, and as for what I do like? If you think Harvey's is anything to talk about, try Dark Star and Milton breweries. Original, flavourful and fantastic brews.

The Harlequin, City

A nice, small pub. The beer is kept well, if a little generic. The landlady is friendly and fantastic.

The Radnor Arms, Kensington

Absolutely fantastic place. Everyone in this pub is extremely friendly, including the two cats & dog. Beer is very well kept, and includes Everard's Tiger and two constantly changing guest ales. Pub quiz on Fridays is great - it's like a game of bingo, so it's part knowledge and part luck. My favourite pub in London.

P.S. The petition was successful. The pub is alive and well.
