The Pig and Whistle, Barnes & Sheen (Bar)
“Avoid unless you like fighting. Unusual for this gentrified area is this awful boozer, which would be more suited to a rough council estate. I lived opposite here for a year and the number of times I had to call the police due to people kicking the living daylights out of each other beggars belief. In every other way it is unremarkable. Cheap, 2-for-1 meals, any football shown on multiple large screens, no decent beer (just fighting lager) and a cold welcome. The worst pub I have been in (and I lived in Hull for a year).”

Idle Hour (closed), Putney (Bar)
“We came here for a drink after dinner elsewhere on my partner's birthday. It was fairly busy, but lacking in atmosphere. I found this place to be exactly what I feared it would be - a typical high-street bar. I still regret spending £140 on drinks (inc champagne) in a place that didn't deserve it. This is a shame, as there is another Idle Hour round the corner from my house (are they connected?) which is great! It is basically the ground floor of a tiny cottage. And no, I won't spoil it by telling all on this site!”

The Blue Anchor, City of London (Bar / Restaurant)
“the Blue Anchor is the sister pub to the Old Ship, the Anchor is just of Chancery Lane, down Rolls Passage. Serve standard pub food, staff are friendly and real beer is typical London - very average. Nice place - very popular with surrounding offices.”

The Knights Templar, City of London (Bar)
“Typical Wetherspoons - cavernous and devoid of a real pub atmosphere. I can only recommend it if you are dirt poor or there are more than 10 of you eating (it''s the only pub around this area able to cope with 12 diners).”

Seven Stars, City of London (Bar)
“Seven Stars is round the corner from my office - great little pub. Food is good, but a little expensive and atmosphere is ideal for lunchtime meetings. Too small for anything else, unless it''s summer, when people are not only across the street, they''re all over it!”
