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 we’re asking readers to take a look through what we have so far, and let us know what we’ve missed and where we need to visit next. This week we’ve added the Dog and Bell in Deptford; Prince Albert and Draft House Westbridge by Battersea Park; and Sun of Camberwell in, er, Camberwell.

Impressive Lego works on display at Old Truman Brewery, link below.

  • Don't cry to me Marty Pellow: Evita at Dominion Theatre is a very mixed bag
  • We may just have found our new favourite comedian. Don't miss Luisa Omielan at Soho Theatre
  • Surreal video art by Pierre Huyghe on show at Hauser & Wirth. Masked monkeys, anyone?
