The Morpeth Arms, Pimlico

They get a 0 for serving all the racist EDL yobs who marched in London last week. Bet it was great for business, but some things are more important than money. A pub I now boycott in principle.

The Angel in the Fields, Bond Street

Very, very decent pub in Marylebone 'village', down to earth and the recent refurbishment hasn't done it any harm. Head upstairs to a lounge-like area for food, which is OK quality (better than chain pubs) and very reasonably priced, as are the drinks, the main reason people tend to go to Samuel Smith's pubs. A good old fashioned boozer where lively banter and general frivolity are the order of the day.

The Brewery Tap, Wimbledon Village

The recent refurbishment isn't nearly as bad as some would make out. Anyone wishing to observe the truly horrifying consequences of some modernisations need look no further than over the road to the Dog and Fox. The Tap is still by far the best pub in the Village. It has the best beers and other drinks, all well kept and always something out of the ordinary on offer. Wine list is decent and very well priced - after the house wines, all the prices are uniform, so you actually get to choose your wine based on what style you like to drink, a very novel ideal indeed! Crowd is refreshingly mixed and unpretentious which is more than can be said for other pubs in the area. Staff are great - the girls are all very pretty (as others have noted!) and the landlord and lady clearly have a passion for their pub and their product. They, if anything, are the reason this has remained such a star pub despite initial grumblings about the smarted up interior. Definitely NOT a winebar!
