    Estrella Damm are a sponsor - it's an awards thing got up by Reed Business Media, ie the Morning Advertiser, so they can treat themselves to a pissup in a fancy London hotel.

    And I haven't been in any of them; or even stood outside any of them because all tables reserved.

    Proud to say just two for me,Guinea Grill (beer only) and Anchor & Hope (beer and food visit ).You might have expect me to have popped into The Boat,Lichfield but the canal which runs outside is derelict but is being restored slowly

    Thankfully just three, The Marksman, Red Lion And Sun and The Anchor And Hope, all London.

    Six for me, all years ago and I'm fairly sure I didn't eat in them although the Anchor & Hope would have laid on sarnies for the darts.

    Guinea
    Marksman
    Red Lion & Sun
    Beehive
    Flitch Of Bacon
    Anchor & Hope

    Just the following for me:

    The Guinea
    The Marksman
    The French House
    The Drapers Arms
    The Red Lion & Sun
    Gunton Arms

    I thought most of these were quite nice places to drink, especially The Marksman, though I've only eaten in the Guinea. The Red Lion & Sun is only really N6 crawl material but the French House is something I'd avoid again like the plague!

    I have carefully avoided eating in 48 of them.

    I thought it was more but only these two:

    The Rat Inn
    The Broad Chare

    Tell us, now, how and when

    Two for me with The White Horse being a regular haunt.

    Food's decent and they always have Adnam's Ghost Ship on along with three others on cask. Usually in decent shape. The bar at the front feels like a proper boozer rather than a gastropub with a large restaurant area at the back.

    Three of the four round Canterbury:all years ago, and I'm not even sure I went in the Dog,Wingham.I certainly wouldn't now,unless it has recently changed from primarily a wedding venue.
