    Trainspotting is probably the only cinematic adjective applied to pubs though I have described some pubs as being a bit Silence of the Lambs (Lecter's prison cell and surroundings).

    Great film but just outside my top ten..Coincidently I came across the Trainspotting music cd today while sorting through some stuff.Never play cd,s now but some great tracks on it.The guy that wrote Trainspotting is a Scotsman and although I have tried to read 7 or 8 of his books I have rarely finished any as he makes by stomach churn with his filth.

    Not exactly a list of my favourite films (although there certainly are some contenders here), but how about this for a great run of motion pictures that just had to be watched on a big screen!

    The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)
    Star Wars (1977)
    Apocalypse Now (1979)
    Alien (1979)
    The Blues Brothers (1980)
    Blade Runner (1982)
    Ghandi (1982)
    Fitzcaraldo (1982)
    The Killing Fields (1984)
    The Mission (1986)
    Cry Freedom (1987)

    Nearly all of them stand the test of time too...

    never found a pub that matched any in Withnail & I but I've sometimes felt like I was living it
    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.

    It's here - The Tavistock - but re-boarded with a different name for the film. I walked past it in 2011 and made a note to photograph it, returning a few months later to find it demolished!

    I don't remember it though live between the Cock & Bottle and Metropolitan. I don't do that Portobello thing as it's full of the people (at least to the south) who I don't really care for. If I fancy a local drink I tend to walk over to Little Venice for their pubs.
