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.
Jerusalem Tavern (Farringdon, London)
... One of a kind - with excellent own-brewed beers.
Betsey Trotwood (Clerkenwell, London)
... A fine Shepherd Neame pub.
Cock Tavern (Smithfield, London)
... Vegetarians look away now.
Golden Eagle (Marylebone, London)
... A jolly time to be had by all in this tiny, tiny pub.
Prince Arthur (Euston, London)
... Breaking the rule that states pubs next to stations must be universally awful.
Sekforde Arms (Clerkenwell, London)
... A hidden away, traditional local.
The Dovetail Bar (Clerkenwell, London)
... Antwerp in Clerkenwell, how did that happen?
The Old Doctor Butler's Head (London Wall, London)
... Old Dr. Butler would have had a fine old time in here.
The Water Poet (Spitalfields, London)
... The antithesis of the smart bar - and all the better for it.
The Greenwich Union (Greenwich, London)
... Another own-brew pub that shows the big boys how it should be done.
