To say that it was the very worst meal we had ever...” more...

Phil Chambers wrote on 13-12-2007 “A huge, sprawling sticky affair - this branch of JD Wetherspoons is probably the cheapest place to drink in Holborn, but by no means the best. Yes, the ale is cheap. Yes, they have some guests. Yes, the clientèle are an amusing mix of chavs and alcoholics - which makes for fun chat! But, it's...” more...

Anyway, it's a very nice place frequented by the fellows of the mathematics department at UCL, so you'll never be short of a spot of vortex-chat over a pint of special. The...” more...

Phil Chambers wrote on 15-11-2007 “The Earl is a pretty good drinking establishment in Notting Hill - and probably the cheapest one at that, being as it is, Samuel Smiths. I like the interior... pokey corners, wood paneling... open fires. It's also quite big. Sadly they don't have any hand pumped ales here, which is a real shame, as...” more...

Phil Chambers wrote on 15-10-2007 “A great little pub just round the corner from Imperial College and the South Ken museums. Slightly hidden in the mews, you won't stumble across it unless you know, which means the crowd is locals, lecturers, and students. There used to be a really great boutique car garage across the road that had a...” more...

Phil Chambers wrote on 13-12-2007 “The Cambridge is a decent central pub that is always always packed due to its location right in Soho. The crowd are a real mixture of pre-clubbing 20-somethings, tourists who accidentally landed there, and some regulars. The landlady is a particularly nice Irish girl who always will attempt to fit...” more...

I was shocked when I found out they're actually owned by Punch Taverns, don't let that put you off! The staff are lovely, two old dears (they'll hate me for saying that!) who are quietly efficient, quite the...” more...

The outside is covered with foliage. Belongs to Brodies and while I've forgotten which of their beers I sampled I know it was a new one for...” more...

This one always looks a bit tired and dirty, but if you don't know what the 'spoons are then learn it. Cheap drinks, ales, regulation lagers,...” more...
15 November 2007Just add on pubs along the way in between holborn and the outliers, 11 is clearly too few anyway. And I think you should select pubs on the basis of the pubs marked on the map forming the shape of santa claus. then even aliens flying past in their UFOs would know there was a christmas pub crawl happening
