Saturday 23 January 1999
159 Farringdon Rd, London EC1 (0171-833 2674)
One of London's first Great Food Pubs, and still one of the best, though sometimes overwhelmed by media folk.
49 Regents Park Rd, London NW1 (0171-586 0408)
Award-winning food and atmosphere for the refined pubbers of Chalk Farm.
1 Clapham Common South Side, London SW4 (0171-498 9473)
This Clapham-trendy hangout provides vast portions of generally good modern, eclectic food.
41 Jew's Row, London SW18 (0181-870 9667)
Terrific barbies in summer, very acceptable restaurant-style food the rest of the year. Advisable to book.
169 Battersea Park Rd, SW8 (0171-622 2007)
Hearty ambience, good food on the whole. Book first, though this won't guarantee a seat.
The Front Page
35 Old Church St, London SW3 (0171-352 0648)
Early gastropub that still makes an effort. Wood floor, large tables, upper- crust clientele.
