The George Tavern, Stepney

In a way I'm grateful for the bad reviews of this place as they should keep away many of the people who we all want to keep away.
If you go to the George and complain about the toilets or the fact the beer garden is actually a road you're missing the point. If you think the people are pretentious or worry it's not a real boozer because there aren't Victorian carpets or a chunky Labrador roaming around licking peanuts off the floor it's probably because you don't believe in the future.
This is a fantastic pub; utterly unique, exciting, funny and very very raw.

The Crown And Two Chairmen, Soho

Went for the Monday night pub quiz and left feeling underwhelmed and annoyed.

Neither the beer nor the place itself were anything to write home about, though the staff were nice enough.

The quiz was hugely disappointing, the categories were boring and the questions themselves prosaic and rarely challenging. The quizmaster was embarrassingly amateur, humourless and didn't appear to understand the questions she was asking. To top it all off, the whole thing was won by a team of 'quizzies' who sat with their heads down in near silence for the whole evening and who were actually friends of the quiz master. Hurrah!

Not planning to go back. Certainly not until they redecorate the ugly aubergine signage outside, or until the other half a dozen or so better pubs within a 2 minute walk all close down.
