The Windmill, Lambeth

An entirely unexpected find and a real gem. Nice and open at the front, dark and characterful at the back. Pool table, space invaders table, a pint of decent ale was £3.50 which is pretty decent given I was coughing up £4.75 somewhere around Holborn the previous night.

Nicely decorated and friendly bar staff. Plenty of people sitting on the tables out the front despite a bizarre attack of tiny black flies that seemed to be only on this street and no other. Hard to fault this place in any way in truth, though it is in south London and nobody should ever have to put themselves through the terrors of south London just to go to a nice pub like this.

The Endurance, Soho

In a quite horrifying turn of events, I walked along Berwick Street last night with the intention of popping into the Endurance only to find the bastard's shut. And not temporarily shut - the restaurant next door is now twice the size and the Endurance is dead and buried beneath a mountain of sushi or sashimi whatever shite they sell in their nasty blue-light emporium.

RIP Endurance, you were much loved, and your jukebox will live long in our drunken memories.

The Stag and Hounds, Binfield

I'm surprised at some of reviews for this place, as I found it to be a lovely old pub, with real character, beautiful both inside and out. I sat by a roaring fireplace in one of the little rooms off the bar, and greatly enjoyed it on a recent Tuesday lunchtime, returning to a village I used to live in as a child for the first time in very many years.

I had a couple of pints of a pleasant ale, and a plate of scampi and chips that I found both well-cooked and substantial.

It does, however, lose one point from me because the landlord some 25 years ago (I imagine he's dead by now) had an affair with a young barmaid, who happened to be my mother, and we had to move away. Brian I think his name was, the filthy fecker.

Nice pub though.
