Cracking boozer. Loads of Badger beers. The Harp, which has been mentioned, is also great.

Yes, love the Sam Smiths pubs, the Red Lion, just off Beak Street another hidden gem.

The coffeehouse also on Beak Street another nice little pub, as is the Argyll by Oxford Circus..

Love Wandsworth common, the Young's pubs round there.

Also most pubs on the Northern line from Clapham South to Tooting Broadway.

I do miss living in London sometimes..

apparently there is a pub in Wapping that is meant to be the oldest in London, I believe it is still there, it drops back onto the river, has anyone ever been? although I have worked in Lonodn on and off during the last twenty odd years in the Marylebone and Mayfair area I never really drunk in many of its pubs as I was mostly working nights and driving.

Good prices and Tribute but after a couple of recent visits I have decided this is a bit of a dive. Some odd characters late on in the evening and Iím sure a Millwall pub. Crossed off my pub crawl list.

You're mixing it up with Smithfield mate. Spitalfield is off Bishopsgate.

I donít like he olde Cheshire cheese on Fleet Street it was ok 25years ago I donít know why but I find it false and touristy.

The princess Louise is an odd pub itís one that thousands of people know about for no real reason good pub.

The secret is finding a good olde world pub that is not rammed, sells decent real ale, and not just the bog standard ones, and is less than £4 a pint.

Difficult in London but still doable.

For anyone in Bromley try the Star and Garter. The opening hours are ‘changeable’ but 4 to 5 real ale taps from £3.30 although craft beers, and there are plenty, need a lot more cash. Well they do have 10% plus jobs.

Captain Kidde had a great setting - not my type of pub as I drink lager and they specialized in real ale. Wasn't it a Sam Smith's pub?

Hard to find pubs that meet those criteria in Central London. You might get a pint for under £4 in The Harp.

Did that after the Man Utd game a few years ago. Had a few friends stay over and we forgot it was a 5:30pm kick-off and set out at the normal time.

Got hammered, ended up in a row with Martin Long, who insisted I was sitting in one of his seats (I wasn't) - he was more hammered than I was.

On the train back to Wapping we got into hassle with Man Utd fans who were happy singing Eric Cantona songs - w@nkers.

Finished up in the Prospect of Whitby where my friend sent his wife a message saying he was about to swim across the Thames. He then climbed down the metal steps and we lost him - he found a path and ended up walking back through the front door of the pub 10 minutes later. His phone had died and his wife spent the rest of the weekend panicking.

What a day.

This is a great thread.

Sad thing is I can never remember the names of boozers clearly anymore.

Mention has been made of small pubs south of St Pancras - some good 'uns there. Haven't been in the Princess Louise for a decade or more. Must have enjoyed a pint or more in the Lamb over 40 years ago and as recently as 5 or 6 years ago. I suspect that the ones dating back 50 years ago in and around Rathbone Street have changed; took my son in the Fitzroy after an away game a few years back and it wasn't the same (though the stairs down to the toilets were even steeper).

Local favourite is The Tiger in Camberwell. Nostalgic as well as I used to go past it in my pram nearly 70 years ago

Used to use the Princess Louise regularly about 30 years ago. Stayed in Holborn recently and walked past it but didn't go in. The Lamb - the one in Leadenhall Market? Was in there a few weeks ago.

Some wonderful pubs have disappeared over the years and others no longer have the same magic.

The Lamb in Bloomsbury. Still has the snob screens and a tiny beer garden. Was convenient for British Museum and Library workers
