The North London Tavern, Kilburn

This is a great pub with one of the best selections of ales I've seen in a pub in London. Very efficient staff and very friendly too. The food is good and reasonable cost for a gastro. Its a real shame the owners of the Black Lion dont take a few tips from this place. Service is awful there and one very poor ale on offer. Always choose this place over the Black lion.

The Black Lion, Kilburn

I posted a comment about a year ago which was very positve about the Black Lion, great location, beautiful pub and the food is very good.

The pub itself remains a really nice place to sit in and enjoy a pint, unfortunately its obtaining the pint which is proving to be a problem lately. As Luongo mentioned in a previous post the staff are really poorly trained. Expect very long waits and generally poor service. The staff are constantly consulting each other over the ingredients of the simplest drink or cocktail. I ordered 4 Bloody Marys on a hangover and the wait was well over 20 minutes, they didnt have all the ingredients (no worcester sauce, crucial) and the there wasnt even a hint of an apology or a 'sorry to keep you waiting' really infuriating. Also they NEVER have more than one or 2 beers/ales actually in stock so your choice is generally very limited.

This place is also very expensive, you can just about handle this if the service was up to scratch but it isnt.

i will be changing my local to another pub which is a real shame as this building deserves better. I write this with a tear in my eye. Im practically sobbing.

The Windmill, Cricklewood

Definitely the best pub in the area (Cricklewood). Really nice interior with open fire. Purists will bemoan the sofas and fancy chairs but it looks good and the outside area is a real winner. Such a plus in the spring/summer months. Staff seem very friendly and I really hope this place doesnt go under. I see the Wetherspoons across the road selling pints for 1.80 and I do weonder if this place will get enough custom.

One complaint would be the menu, but its not that bad just not a great deal of choice. But then its a drinking pub more than an eating pub. if you want that then get down to the Black Lion or London Tavern.
