    I don't remember that but it was a long time ago.

    Again, I don't remember! Jugs were the default until some time in the 80's (I think) and I'm sure I used to drink from them myself. I don't mind people asking to have a jug but I find the modern hipster trend of being given a jug by default very annoying. It's not as annoying as being forced to drink halves or thirds just because the beer's a bit strong.

    A reasonable effort from me with 39/50
    A good list with 43/50 for me, minus:

    The Westminster Arms
    The Alexandra
    The White Swan
    The Royal Oak
    The Prince of Greenwich
    Harwood Arms
    The Harp and shameful given that I live in this pub's borough.

    Of those that get an honourable mention, I've been to:

    The Snooty Fox
    The Bill Murray
    The Hawley Arms
    The Lord Stanley
    The Pineapple
    The Black Cap
    The Kings Arms
    The Axe
    The Wells Tavern

I largely put this down to the fact that the toilets are also still diabolical and as well as the risk of falling in them the gents were producing such a pong to classify as a double pegger and after 15 minutes in the downstairs bar we joined the hordes in Hanway Street to get some air."
    Bradley's Spanish Bar is a minor London institution and in a way, a must-visit with a trip to the legendarily narrow loo being compulsory. Minus the undoubted deaths of the two Spanish wrestling?/boxing? brothers who ran the place, I doubt it's changed since we hung out there in the late '80s, with the hordes spilling out onto Hanway Street - and this was before the smoking ban! A visit here is a little like eating in Wong Kei - people go not for the food but for the unbelievable rudeness! So yes, it's certainly worth a visit, mainly for the experience but also the great vibe and [probably still] funky jukebox - go before it's gone.
