Antic pubs have been getting a few mentions in various threads so I thought I'd start a more sepcific thread to keep up with its, er antics. For anyone who missed any previous mentions, they are a newish PubCo based in London who are renovating and reopening what can best be desribed as pubs that were not very good in the past. That they are doing it in areas of London that full of not very good pubs adds to their interest. I have so far just been to 2, the Dogstar in Brixton (much improved on my pre-Antic visit) and the Battersea Mess and Music Hall that was a new one to me and had a very impressive ale range. Some of us will be testing the Red Lion in Leytonstone next week. As far as I can see, all of their pubs have reintroduced Real Ales, often in high numbers with up to 10 hand pumps. The latest to fall under their umbrella is 10 real ales and a beer festival this Saturday to kick things off. A list of their pubs is on their website and it will be interesting to see how the company and pubs get on over the coming couple of years and read people experiences.
