The Southwark Tavern, London Bridge

Used to love this pub when it was a sprint over the bridge for a swifty at 11.00 when the City pubs didn't open till 11.30.
Still a good pub as they haven't trashed the interior, and a good range of well kept beers.
I know they are trained to serve short measures as a cynical means of gouging even more money out of honest drinkers, but employing enthusiastic European staff who probably really believe a pint pot should only contain a nominal amount of fluid is completely taking the piss.

The Wheatsheaf, Borough

Pub has been very nicely done up and the beer was good...Charles Wells Bombardier and Youngs Ordinary.
However there seems to be a deliberate policy to serve the shortest measures in history.....even worse than the Southwark Tavern round the corner. At £4.20 a pop they were trying to rob me of about 60-70p every pint. Requests to receive something approximating to a full pint were grudgingly responded to

The Bull's Head, Clerkenwell

If you find yourself in the nearby Thistle Hotel it might take you as much as 30 seconds to walk across the road to this perfect local London pub. Excellent beer (the Tim Taylors as good as it gets), very welcoming friendly Landlady and equally friendly local clientele. Pubs like this are heart and soul of communities. I can be a miserable and cynical git, but 2 hours here restored my faith in mankind
