    'twas ever thus...Dunno the best venue:Canterbury for character,perhaps Sevenoaks,Tonbridge,Tunbridge Wells. Most towns are grotty or quite small. I'm not really the best source of info, as I rarely drink in town pubs.

    Yup. Dull sums them up and sadly two are local to me. I almost got a pint out of desperation at the Clissold Park Tavern on Monday but I wasn't that desperate. I've never wondered why the Famous Cock has been given this name. There's nothing 'famous' about it. The Load of C**K would be a better description.

    Spend a week doing the Kentish micropubs (or should that be the micropubs of Kent)!

    I'd agree with 'every pub in Bloomsbury'. Used to live there and that sums it up perfectly!

    I know I've been in The Famous Cock before an Arsenal match. The only memorable thing was the name! I'll have to have a check on the others.

    See bumped review appreciation thread. You can choose a top 10/20 if you wish.

    They deliberately serve short measures in the Chandos, perhaps an instruction from Sams hq. Some idiot tried to tell me it was the law to serve 10% short. I politely requested a top up and the hostile yoot behind the bar then slammed the glass down so hard that the increased volume jumped back out of the glass! Well, I said, you'll have to top that up again now, won't you..? I only ever went in the place to use the cubby hole dart area, if available.
