    Running Awards events is a fairly standard bit of publicity/revenue attracting activity (I have done it myself!) They also run such extravaganzas as the National Burger Awards, the Freak Shake Awards and the Great British BBQ Battle. Good clickbait and they have done fairly well in generating publicity, but I think we can ignore them entirely.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Top 50 London Pubs (yet another).
    Some usual suspects, some not so, some omissions. Ad blocker recommended.

    36/50 for me.

    42/50 , with only the Peckham/Nunhead/Plumstead entries pending.

    This is a very good list, the only clunker I can think of is the Harwood, which is a restaurant where you can graciously sit at the bar; the Cow is a local and I walk past it every day - it's the ultimate poseurs' pub so I avoid it. I've made return visits to the Pride of Spitalfields, Mitre and Bank of Friendship in the last five days and they're still enjoyable.

    The Salisbury is a must-visit for the stunning interior; if CAMRA offered a ****-star award, this would be a recipient. The Palm Tree is a must-visit, especially given the current landlords can't go on forever - they've been there since around 1974 - and when they go, it'll get hipsterised. The Holly Tree is fun for the railway, leaving the visitor chuffed!

    34/50 for me. Skehan's has now creeped up the chart to take the No. 1 spot; almost like the old-fashioned Top 40 Singles Chart, where a song could climb up the chart week-on-week based on radio plays and TOTP appearances. Record analogy aside, I can't quite see what the fuss over the pub is, but Time Out seems to love it, as it's been on this list for a number of years.

    Yes, some lists seem to love the place. I'm going to do SE14, not least because there are four CAMRA heritage pubs in the postcode so I may as well do the whole lot. The new website with a bouncer fist pumping a punter doesn't paint a particularly great picture.

    I've been waiting for you to get yourself there as I'd be interested on your take on the place.
