Every month, the folks at Fancyapint? get together to vote for their top ten favourite pubs. These are recently visited pubs that for one reason or another (the ambience, the booze, the company) stuck in their collective memory. Kindly, these booze-savvy Fancyapinters have decided to share their latest picks with Londonist and all our readers. Cheers!

Here’s the current list from Fancyapint? in no particular order of merit. They assure us that all ten pubs are quality establishments.

- Sekforde Arms 4P_sl.jpg (Clerkenwell, London)
A traditional alternative to the relentless trendiness of Clerkenwell, a fine pub.

- Golden Eagle 4P_sl.jpg (Marylebone, London)
If you fancy a pint and a singsong, this is the place- Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese 3P_sl.jpg (Fleet Street, London)
Experience the last few hundred years of London history in a single lunchtime- Woodman 3P_sl.jpg (Highgate, London)
A welcome breath of fresh air in this once notorious boozer- Windsor Castle 5P_sl.jpg (Marble Arch, London)
A great British eccentric.- Quinn's 4P_sl.jpg (Camden, London)
A friendly place to relax in - and drink beer by numbers- The Old Bell 4P_sl.jpg (Fleet Street, London)
A classic - even the demise of Fleet Street has done little to change it.- Bank of Friendship 3P_sl.jpg (Finsbury Park, London)
Relaxed and friendly, i's not just for Gooners.- Molly Moggs 3P_sl.jpg (Leicester Square, London)
A warm welcome and gay old time.- Princess of Wales 4P_sl.jpg (Primrose Hill, London)

So let's see, this month there are no decent pubs in South or East London. Interesting...

Check last month's list. It has a few pubs in Borough:

Fancyapint? does the leg work (and really work out their elbows too) getting the lowdown on London pubs.

I just wanted to comment along the same lines, this is a "north-of-the-river" list, here in South-East London there's some fine establishments for those that have a palat that can appreciate fine things but those people of the fancy-a-pint will never know it. Not fancy enough for them.

Well, hang in there. I know they do as good a job as anybody getting out there and trying to review all of London's pubs. Got some south of the river recs for 'em?
