Yesterday I did a crawl of West Drayton, Hayes and Southall which has to be one of the worst and I'm glad that I do not have to return to these postcodes. I think that the crawl was summed up by the fact only two out of the fourteen pubs I visited had real ale, but three of the pubs had regular strippers.

Even the Wetherspoons I visited only had Ruddles, Pride and Moorhouse's Pride of Pendell.

My Wednesday night crawl through the seamier bits of Liverpool 3 was one never to be repeated, I started in the Lime St station bar then I passed through seven other pubs and bars where the beer was poor to utter carp, none of it real ale. the only high point was a bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. All the places were "interesting", a couple were good pubs in their way but not worth revisiting.

Worst crawl ive done recently was from Angel Road Edmonton Too Ponders End along the Hertford Road Every Pub that was still Open which was very few now was crap not one had any decent Ale on. The only saving grace was the Spoons at Ponders End. Most the good ones I remember from the 70s have been knocked down. :moremad:

No ! the JDW in Telford is the Thomas Bottfield in Telford Town Centre , its rubbish , the only other JDW in Telford was the Church Wickets in Dawley , it was trully awfull , though quite good for Dawley !

Wellington in Somerset sounds very similar

If anybody in London feels bold enough to try a rubbish pub crawl, one could do worse than take the short walk between West Brompton and West Kensington stations along Lillie Road and North End Road. Nasty pub with no real ale follows nasty pub with no real ale; with just one half-decent pub amongst about 10 horrors (well one less now, following the demise of the Seven Stars which must have been an art deco treasure in its heyday).

I know the area reasonably well, starts with the awful Imperial Arms and Lille Langtry, then not much on North End Road until the half-decent Cumberland Arms at the top.

Why would anyone accept such a mission rp?

The Atlas, just off Lillie Rd, has had something worthwhile on one of the 3 pumps on my couple of visits and does good food, albeit at gastro prices. I once had a decent Doombar at the Prince of Wales.
West Brompton is just 8mins overhead to Clapham Junction & the Falcon, or connections to points West...

Yeah, I've done a few around there and agree the Atlas is ok. Lillie Langtry was my least favourite and the Prince of Wales is also nice, but the food is bad and overpriced.

Just to fit in with Millay's Liverpool thread, one of the worst crawls ever is up London Rd in LIverpool (turn right out the front of Lime St then third right). Start at the Lord Warden, then the Picture House, Dixie Deans, Durty Nellies, Royal George and the Post Office, possibly the Dart & Shamrock if it's still open. No decent beer, largely characterless pubs and dodgy customers - enjoy :D

I do concur. Having worked in the town for 6 years, I know of no decent pubs in Bridgwater.
