Best pubs in London

We’re building a new website of the best pubs in London (mostly as voted for by Londonist readers). We still have a few areas to explore, but do take a look through the guide so far, and let us know about any scandalous omissions. We’ve added a good number this week: Montague Arms in Peckham; King’s Arms in Waterloo; Pride of Spitalfields in… you can guess where; Harrild and Sons in the City; and the Star and AnchorRed Lion, North Star and The Wheatsheaf — all in Ealing.
