The Harringay Arms, Crouch End

Beers great now, but what in God's name is the 'mild' referb all about.

lots of bench seating removed in favour of high stools and beer barrels..like the beer garden of an o'neills in 1998. The rest removed, presumably to accommodate more people, but in reality the tiny tables are too close to reach other to do this.

Also, a truly horrendous multicolored wall beer display more fitting to a nightclub in Ilford, my nan's sofa in the corner and a beer fridge which is so bright I feel I'm being interrogated by the stazi.

I fear that as they get more cash to continue their referb, they'll turn it into an Australian's nightmare (to quote spinal tap). The changes are just bizarre, cheap, crap and pointless and I just don't get the rationale.

Nice record player tho.

Three Compasses, Hornsey

Horrible, pointless refurb. Hard echoey surfaces, no soft furnishings to dampen the sound. Mediocre beer choice (it's not 2002 anymore, lads) and removal of pool tables (par for the course these days, but nothing worth coming here for in compensation).

But they went to check out some rivals and saw those old Edison lightbulbs were fashionable and got some of those, so it's not all bad.

The Horse and Groom, Great Portland Street

Two pints of Pure Brewed lager and a keg OBB - nearly 12. You gotta be having a laugh, 'cos nothing SS pubs sell is any good really.

I used to go due to the good value of the beer when I was younger, but now I may as well go to the other non SS pubs in Fitzrovia (there are a few) and actually have a decent beer.

Shame.
