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.
