The Crabtree, Hammersmith

A very borderline boozer. A great space, nice sized bar. Good location by the river. Does food, that as some one mentioned ealier is borderline school dinners. But they do do greater platters of grub that soak up plenty of booze. The beer is good. Staff are borderline sometimes smiley and helpful, sometimes having faces like slapped arses and being as useful as a square wheel. (having to point out to staff were to find the drinks you need, when the can eventually be bothered to serve you.)
But as I don't live to near it I don't go that often. So in conclusion a resounding not bad.

The Fire Stables, Wimbledon Village

This is a very pleasant Gastro Pub. I would not class it as a terriffic drinking hole though, far to busy being a resturant. I would say that the both the food and the service were excellent, I started with char grilled squid and it was stunning, in a melt in your mouth way that i did not think possible. I followed it with the Roast Beef (it was a Sunday after all) which was nothing special apart from the vast amount of lovely medium rare beef that you were served. And the pudding was almost as good as the starter, I really nice moist, good sized portion of sticky toffee pudding and ice cream.
but...
Iwas incredibly noise in there, you really had to shout to make yourself heard, which of course just increase the noise level, I blame dodgey accoustics. Also it was pretty expensive.
So all in all good a gastro pub, worth a visit about once or twice a year. oh and beer wise only had the Carlsberg was was nice a lively, but it is only Carlsberg, so if you want proper booze head to a proper pub.

The Crab Inn, Shanklin

A very pretty pub, supposedly the most photo'd pub in the country. But Inside is decidely average, the beer is a bit poor, and judging by the dodgey uniforms is part of some chain. The whole order food seperatley is as stated below a bit old hat. and the Crab sandwich was a bit poor. It is nice to sit in the beer garden when the sun is shinning but for decent food and a better pint and more atmosphere there is a great pub across the road, go there instead.
