Authentic pub in London

by spacedust

Hi,
Can you help me with a few 'authentic' pubs (from the old days)that serve up some real good fare when it comes to beer and english eats?
What time do pubs usually shut down in London?
Approximate spends at a pub for say 2 rounds of beer and some eats.....
Thanks
Francis

OK, a few different questions here.

I will suggest some websites later although it would help greatly to know what area of London you are going to be visiting or staying in, it is a very large place. Pubs generally close at 11p.m. but some stay open later. Beer varies anywhere from about £2 to £3:30 per pint depending on location and pub. Absolutely impossible to quote prices for food as it varies so much. For cheap pub eats try Wehterspoons

http://www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk/

There are mixed views about this chain, and most are not traditional pubs but they are relatively cheap. You can go right up the scale to some very good gastro pubs where you can pay a lot of money.

Again, just a few suggestions (you can google for details)

I recommend the Blind Beggar in Whitechapel (my local), also does good food, espeecially the Sunday Roast. Here is a decent webpage. I hsave drunk in most of the pubs there except the Magdala.

Another good site is

http://www.beerintheevening.com/

Let me know what areas you are interested in and I will suggest some for you.

Hope this assists,

fergy.

Re: Authentic pub in London

by cubsur

Having worked in central London for 34 years I would suspect that there hardly a single 'authentic' pub in about 20 square miles.

My colleagues and I would deliberately go 'off the beaten track' and find a pub tucked away in the back streets or among the apartment tower blocks and well away from the office blocks and tourists. We managed to find a few, but it is four years now since I exchanged the delights of London for the delights of Portugal. I therefore hesitate to make a recommendation as a lot can change in four years. However, if I were to know which area of London you would be staying in I am sure a thought or two would come to mind.

Our fave pubs in London are Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese and the Black Friar, both do excellent food and beer in historic surroundings.

More info here on the Black Friar (gorgeous interior, hearty food, superb ales)

And the Cheshire Cheese (v quaint front room, nice restaurant upstairs, the extension out back has no character but plenty of seats)
http://www.pubs.com/pub_details.cfm?ID=216

Both are close enough together for a crawl in between! You can read all about my experiences there on my London page, under the Nightlife and Restaurant sections.

Travel Tips for London

by luvdup1

Do all the tourist things like Big Ben etc BUT a must is Camden Town and Portabello Market in Notting Hill!Both places are packed with Funky fashion and vintage clothes.You can definately pick up a bargain here!
Portabello is open on Fridays and Saturdays.
Also if you enjoy London Museums, then visit: British Museum, Museum of London, Science Museum, Sherlock Holmes Museum, The Natural History Museum OR if you like art then London Galleries, including: National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, Tate Britain, Tate Modern are good places to visit.For those of you that enjoy the theatre why not see Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, Cats, Les Miserables, The Mouse Trap..the list goes on....For shopping in London look out for Shopping Fortnum & Mason, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Covent Garden, Savil Row Liberty and Selfridges....For guided tours of London try Adventure Ballons, Big Bus Company, London Pride, Original London Sightseeing Tour, Zig Zag Audio Tours. For days out with children visit Museum of Childhood, Cutty Sark, London Aquarium, London Planetarium, London Zoo and Science Museum. I live in London so I dont miss it!

Walk across the Water

by pedersdottir

Any visit of a week or more should include at least one walk across the Thames.

The city makes it easy, by offering a number of pedestrian bridges. Two favorites are the Waterloo Bridge (which you will share with road traffic) and the minimalist Millenium Bridge (pedestrians only, pictured here). To walk the circuit created by these two and their connecting walkways is a day's adventure. It spans the spectrum of London history.

by Boka

Buy The London Pass (1 to 7 days) in advance from your country! It gives you free entry to almost all major sites. I bought mine for 2 days, 45 Euros from Finland. It has many options for rain and shine. Entry or discounts for attractions, museums, cruises, evening program, etc. A real bargain if you buy it in advance!

Check out www.londonpass.com British atmosphere is just amazing!

Ravens at the tower of london

by scott_txguy

If you visit the tower of London, check out the Ravens. (Big black birds) legend has it that if the ravens ever leave the tower the monarchy will fall. So they keep the ravens pretty well fed and they will hold still for pictures. this guy was pretty good. he even let me pet him. I found out later you are not supposed to touch the ravens as they can (and have done) take people's finger off by biting.

How Not To Over-Pack Based

by krbrooks

Luggage should be as minimal as possible because each country has weight restrictions. I suggest you take luggage that can take a beating because it will be put through the test. Packing should always include a warm jacket or coat if you're travelling to multiple countries even if it's during the spring/summer season (weather is crazy lately) and don't restrict your clothes to sports / walking attire. Take things that are hip, romantic, sexy and trendy so you won't go over budget by spending extra $'s shopping while you're abroad. Take your day-to-day toiletries and skip items that you don't typically use. If you're travelling to popular tourist countries and you need something that is out of the norm -- it's cheaper to buy it when needed, than to haul a ton of extra items that you may never use. Extra stuff will make your travel exhausting and more expensive because in many cases you'll have to pay for the extra weight. A digital camera is smart and the best gear that you can take. It's compact, light weight and can take hundreds of pictures. Clear all of your photos out of the camera before you travel so you'll have a clean plate. Only take these types of items if you plan to camp out. Then take the necessary and appropriate items. If you're travelling abroad where your flight(s) will be 5 or more hours, book your flight during the night hours so that you'll automatically sleep during the flight based on your biological clock. When you wake up (naturally) the plane will be landing. I wish someone had advised me of this before I booked my flight to London. Also, if travelling in Europe to multiple countries - the Eurorail/EuroStar is not the cheapest way to travel. Flights are super cheap & faster. Europe (hotels, restaraunts, metro, buses) is very pet friendly, so bring your dog.
