    For the first time I find a dilemma here as there are two distinct and totally different possibilities
    This or This.

    The choice couldn't be more stark, a classic country pub from an "Old School" regional brewer or a basic room bolted on to the side of a "New Wave" brewery underneath a Hackney railway arch.

    As usual it's the beer that wins the argument so it's the London Fields Tap Room.
    There aren't many Harvey's pubs better than the Hailsham King's Head (The Cricketers at Berwick springs to mind) and I really feel I ought to visit the two London ones for the first time. After all, it's no longer worth going to Wandsworth for the Young's pubs!

    Ah, The Cricketers!An excellent pub.Took me the best part of 40 years to find it.

    Plenty to choose from after a brilliant tour round Huddersfield-Wakefield, but I think finally ticking the WRRR has to win the day, just! One could happily miss a few trains at this station bar with good beer choice, real fires, a chatty buzz, and even the match in one far corner.

    Well it was going to be a traditional pub the Masons Arms in Teddington which mightily impressed me but on the last day of the month I went into Wetherspoons Hamilton Hall for a swift couple of pint before the last train (just caught it).The sheer grandeur of the building and the beer quality was stunning.
