    Default One of the worst crawls I've done.

    Yesterday I did a crawl of West Drayton, Hayes and Southall which has to be one of the worst and I'm glad that I do not have to return to these postcodes. I think that the crawl was summed up by the fact only two out of the fourteen pubs I visited had real ale, but three of the pubs had regular strippers.

    Even the Wetherspoons I visited only had Ruddles, Pride and Moorhouse's Pride of Pendell.

    My Wednesday night crawl through the seamier bits of Liverpool 3 was one never to be repeated, I started in the Lime St station bar then I passed through seven other pubs and bars where the beer was poor to utter carp, none of it real ale. the only high point was a bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. All the places were "interesting", a couple were good pubs in their way but not worth revisiting.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Worst crawl ive done recently was from Angel Road Edmonton Too Ponders End along the Hertford Road Every Pub that was still Open which was very few now was crap not one had any decent Ale on. The only saving grace was the Spoons at Ponders End. Most the good ones I remember from the 70s have been knocked down.
    Don't You just hate Pubs that say
    ( We don't stock any Real Ales as theres Just no call for it.)

    If anybody in London feels bold enough to try a rubbish pub crawl, one could do worse than take the short walk between West Brompton and West Kensington stations along Lillie Road and North End Road. Nasty pub with no real ale follows nasty pub with no real ale; with just one half-decent pub amongst about 10 horrors (well one less now, following the demise of the Seven Stars which must have been an art deco treasure in its heyday).
