Scopey  (517) Aldwych, England | April 5, 2013
A fairly traditional looking pub located on the east-side of the strand. I would normally have walked past, but I saw a sign saying they had 9 cask ales and indeed they had! Nice selection of well-kept ales from the likes of Ascot, Dark Star and such like. They also let you have 3 thirds instead of a pint, which is always nice. As well as the usual crappy get stuff they have some meantime and La Chouffe. A worthy stop for a few ticks in this part of town.

A nice old-school boozer that sometimes has a few interesting items on tap. You wonít likely find much in the way of ímoderní craft beer in here, but you can expect some good, traditionally styled stuff on cask. The staff is adequately efficient, the pricing average.

Not a must visit by any means, but itís worth popping your head in if you find yourself nearby.

Nice bar with a modest selection of beers. There is a nice feel in here, olde worlde to a degree and the Ogee doorway embedded in the wall shows that the bones of this place goes back a long time. Service was prompt and friendly. Nice place if you are in the area.

Opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, this pub has a small front and never gets wide, but goes back fairly deep into the building itís housed in and thereís a decent amount of seating for dining or drinking. Itís a modern take on a traditional pub with a decent relaxing atmosphere to it. The bar is set back in the middle of the pub against its side wall and includes a considerable row of hand pumps with some good rotating options available.

Just over the road from the Royal Courts of Justice, the LSE, Kings College and on Fleet Street means The George has an eclectic client base. Busy whatever time you visit, youíll find a good variety of English kegs (mainly from the South and London) and a decent international bottle collection. The taps change regularly. Shows major sporting events. The food at the George is spot on and the menu is varied too. Some have commented on the service here, but as a regular the staff are always accommodating and friendly. One memorable example is a guy behind the bar using the spare tip change as I was counting up what was left in the wallet.

Visited around 4.15pm on Tuesday August 6th 2013. Between Waterloo and Blackfriars Bridgeís on the Thames side of the Strand the George is a fairly trad looking boozer with wooden flooring and panels. The London Pub Co, to which the George belongs, is owned by GK but not one of their beers to be found here. The bar is to the right as you enter with largely low level seating in the form of bays of 6 or so, plus some higher stools by a shelf as you enter. 9 cask beers available, a fairly local theme with beers from Twickenham, Trumans and Meantime on tap. There is ordinarily an Ascot Ales beer available - Red IPA on my visit. Place was moderately busy with a mix of tourists and local workers. Service was fine if a little slow but one guy and tourists asking lots of questions about drinks and food didnít help! Not somwhere Iíd seek out but if in the area youíll probably grab a tick and as mentioned useful for an Ascot tick in particular. Approx 15 minutes walk from here to Craft Clerkenwell via Fetter Lane.

A very inviting exterior brought me in and the friendly staff made me stay. A good slection of cask ales. The fruit machines and TVs take a bit away from the atmoshere but itbis definately worth a drop by.

I think this pub has external architecture really impressive, itís impossible not to go for a drink. Good selection of ales and ciders, very friendly staff with foreigners. 8/9 taps but really nice environment, elegant.. a real and typical English pub.

Been here a few times and had my London leaving drinks here the other night and was as good as always. Lots of cask choices available, quite a wide array of different UK/London centric brewers as well as the odd Belgium/German number on keg. Great place to watch football as well with a good few screens present but at the same time not overwhelming for the non sports fan, with some dark ambient corners to be found. Cask quality I have always found to be very good and this place is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Nice pub located at the eastern end of the (you guessed it!) Strand. Thereís 9 beers on cask available here, no small feat for a pub in such a central location. The choice among cask beers is actually pretty decent. When I was there, options from London brewers such as Sambrooks, Twickenham, and Florence were available alongside things from Adnams and Dark Star. The keg stuffís the usual crap. The pubís nicely appointed, spacious. Thereís a fireplace and a couple of TVs showing sport. The service was fine, reasonably cheery. The value was OK considering the location. Overall, I liked this place. Itís a good option to have if you happen to be in the area. Very few pubs in this part of town will offer a cask selection thatís even close to what they have here.
