Fancy A Pint? Ten Top Pubs To Try. And A New Website.

The Fancyapint team have been busy. Not only have they been out tasting beer, testing bar staff and reviewing pubs, they've been working on a website makeover too. It's now easier to find good pubs in the area you want over at new look Disagree with their verdicts? Add your own review to the site.

This month's top ten recommendations don't include anything further south than Bermondsey but they've spanned the city with a recommendation for Hammersmith out west and Walthamstow out east.

- Dean Swift Beer House (Bermondsey)
Good range of beers and the food's not bad either

- Ain't Nothin' But... The Blues Bar (Soho)
One of our favourite live music venues in Soho

- William IV3P_sl.jpg (Walthamstow)
Brew pub and home of the excellent Brodies Beer

- Old Eagle (Camden)
Genuine, friendly local boozer, with a good mixed crowd and friendly service

- Ye Olde Mitre Tavern (Farringdon)
An old favourite, and very historic, haunt with a landlord who knows his beer and how to keep it.

- The Draft House (Bermondsey)
Still a great bet for decent beer and good food

- Windsor Castle (Notting Hill)
A fine old pub with a rural feel in Hotting Hill - and a lovely garden

- The Masons Arms (Regent's Park)
Decent pub off the beaten track, another old favourite

- The Queen's Head (Brook Green)
Large beer garden, large interior and Fuller's range of excellent ales

- The Gunmakers (Farringdon)
Titchy, but perfectly formed real ale pub in Clerkenwell

It's all about going to the pub at

Entirely by coincidence I was on FAP's site last night looking for a boozer in Fulham. So, a potted review:

Love, love, LOVE what they're doing with the improved information level on facilities.  Anyone who's tried to find a pool table in the City will appreciate this: they're few and far between and annoyingly, seem to come and go (I still lament the loss of the upstairs pool room at the Globe, Moorgate). 

But - perhaps it's just me? - it's slow, slow, slow.  More maps is great but not when you click on an area, it thinks for ten seconds, and then starts to load it just as you click somewhere else.  Sort that out and it's magic.

Fancy a pint?

Hi Lewis,
Thanks for the feedback, we're pleased you like some of the new information on the site. We think it's a step forward, but we've got a lot more things we want to do.

Re: performance - you're right, the site is slow (it's not you), especially on map pages, and we'll be making some improvements in the next few days. By early next week you should see maps working quite a bit faster.

In the meantime, sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any more feedback, please let us know and if we can, we will add it to the current development programme.

Yeah fancy a pint site looks better than previous but I stumbled across a new gem of a site the other day, a price comparison site for going out in London, pretty cool

So true on the Windsor Castle, they have the cutest garden. I went there in the winter once too and had a really nice glass of mulled wine. You can check out a little more info about them here http://www.thepurplepassport.c...
