I have no criteria per se, so this is an honour system: this needs to be genuinely crawl-able (i.e. no public transport involved) on a night out. I figure the more contributions, the better armed any of us will be drinking across the nation.
So I’ll start with the bit of London I stomp around -
Cutty Sark Inn – beautiful old building, gastro-ish-but-not-too-OTT-food, good beers, good view of the river.
Pelton Arms – much more relaxed, beat-up couches, long bar, live music, sizeable beer garden that’s a little ramshackle but nice, and good ale choices.
Vanbrugh – Much less known than t’other two, huge place, great craft beer selection, good sunday roasts etc, good amount of space between tables, really good staff and atmosphere.
