The Queens Arms, South Kensington

I'd love to give this place higher rating than the 6 I did: it's got good beers that are regularly changed and kept in good nick; the place looks good and they don't gouge ones eyes out on pricing (this is a relative comment given the location and lack of choice around here in general). And its proximity to the RAH is fantastic.
However, it's really aiming for the gastropub and half the seating is reserved for diners. There isn't much space otherwise and I get the impression that unless one gets here mid-afternoon then forget finding somewhere to sit. And the way the bar takes up space between the seats it's really cramped and not terribly pleasant to stand (especially in winter as there's nowhere to put coats).

The Harp, Covent Garden

Popped in for a quick one on a late Saturday afternoon. The rain was just about holding off and so standing outside was okay, thankfully as the pub itself is very narrow so easily crowded.
The beer was very well kept, the barmaids were serving quickly and friendly, a good effort given how very popular the pub is. All in all a very good pub for those who like their real ale.

Green Dragon, Winchmore Hill

Came here to eat upstairs with the wife on a Friday night. This has never been the best of pubs for a drink, previous comments were fair a couple of years ago, but it's gone downhill. Loud and quite chavvy, a fun atmosphere in a way I guess. They never used to put much effort in the beers and have completely given up the ghost as the handpumps are still on display but there's nothing in them. So lager it is.
The food is nice enough. Fairly priced, reasonably tasty but it's fairly standard fare and nothing special.
