Fancy a pint? A great web resource (besides me, of course)

Recently I received a request for a pub recommendation in an area of London I rarely frequent: Knightsbridge.  To be honest, that particular part of London is a little rich for my blood, not to mention a ways from where I live, but in the interest of branching out (and pleasing my readers), I decided to do a bit of research and try to get down there to profile a pub.

I googled the area, and read some pub reviews, but it wasn't until today, when I discovered fancyapint.com, that I really hit the jackpot.  The site reviews pubs all over London (on a 1-5 pint scale), and gives tidbits such as which venues play live music and which don't allow cell phones.

I'm still hoping to get down to Knightsbridge and review a few places myself, because of course I can't expect you all to want to spend your London vacays in Angel alone, but for now, give fancyapint a shot and let me know how it goes!

PS Darren, just for now, this is for you.

    Sorry about that. It seems to be working now though (just MY luck that the site would go down just as I publish!).

    Thanks! I found more pubs than I'll ever be able to hit while I'm there. Too much to see to sit in a pub for the whole trip, but I'm sure that's where I'll spend my evenings!
