Food & Drink: Ales and pies for the upper crust

Not quite spit and sawdust: with the Stargazey Ale and Pie in Fulham Road, west London, Fullers has launched the first in a series of theme pubs. All tiled floors, wood surfaces and mirrors, giving an almost quaint old-fashioned feel, the pubs take their names from the house special, a traditional pie. Stargazey is an old-style Cornish fish pie. The next theme pub will be the Blackbird in Earl's Court Road, west London. Anyone for . . ?
