London Pubs Reviewed

A couple of weeks ago we made the trip to London for a bit of a impromptu Uni flat reunion. The trip was also a great opportunity to rate some London pubs.

We left the tube at Oxford Street and after a bit of a wander we found ourselves at The Montagu Pyke. This is more or less your typical Wetherspoons but might be of historic interest to some as it was the location of the Marquee club in the early 80s.

It was then on to Piccadilly and our travels took us to the Tiger Tiger bar. This is a more exclusive kind of a venue including a special roped off VIP area. Unsurprisingly it was also very expensive - £4.20 for a pint of Stella!

A wander past Buckingham Palace took us towards our final port of call and the focal point for the Hertha 139 Flat Re-union 2010 - The King's arms. Located just around the corner from Victoria Station this was much more of a traditional pub.

Maybe it was the fact that I was quite beered up by this point and the reminiscing of our old Uni days had reached a high point but I really liked The Kings Arms. Sure its a bit rough around the edges and the 'retro' decor might be frowned upon by some but nobody can deny that this place has character. And the Fish and Chips we had there was pretty good too.

There was talk of a more extended London booze up for the Hertha 139 crew in the not too distant future and as ever we'll take the opportunity to review a few more pubs in the process.
