They were confusing 'ungentrified' with 'rough' I think. There was a programme about 10 years ago that was closer to the mark. New Penny Farthing, Liverpool anyone?
    Probably confusing rough with urban charm.

    Not in your borough but they named it after you. Aqua Spirit.

    I'll second that, my review is here and Peter Rydings doesn't appear to like it either. You could go round to Lime St to McHale's Irish American Bar or to prove I'm not anti Liverpool you could go to, or rather avoid, almost any pub in Brackley in Northamptonshire

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    I might get the second Scottish pub soon as I'll be going through Glen Coe this Saturday afternoon on the way north.
    Make it ten, currently enjoying a pint of An Tealach in the Clachaig

    Eight for me

    4. The Nutshell, Bury St Edmunds
    8. The Jerusalem Tavern, London
    10. The Butcher’s Arms, Herne
    12. Bridge Inn, Topsham, Devon
    14. Haunch of Venison, Salisbury
    16. Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, Nottingham
    18. The Eagle and Child, Oxford
    20. Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, London

    Had the Dove in Hammersmith on the ‘to do’ list for years, must try and get that ticked off this Summer. Never heard of the Spaniard so will add that to my London list as well!

    Just four:

    7. The Skirrid Inn
    9. The Drunken Duck
    16. Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem
    21. Crown Posada

    ...and I was taken into the Spaniards by my grandparents when I was too young to drink, so I don't think that would count.

    The Dove is a really nice Fullers house that is right next to the Thames,i have been in the pub twice because i like it so much,get in early dinner and you should bag a seat by the window which overlooks the Thames.

    The Spaniards is also a nice old pub situated in the middle of Hampstead Heath,loads of busses go by from either Hampstead or Highgate,i did the pub in winter and it was still packed with tourists,with slow service,i would'nt bother trying to do it in the warmer months.
