The Pembury Tavern in East London: This little gem is a real find! In addition to being a proper drinking den (Milton Brewery goodies and STRONG ale on tap), it has a laid-back student vibe to it. There is a Bar Billiards table, a total of eight real ales on tap, the house wines are? 2.10 for a glass of excellent Cabernet Sauvignon, the food is hearty and plentiful for the money, and the staff is genuinely friendly.

Maybe the decor leaves something to be desired, as? it can look a bit empty and abandoned when it isn’t busy, but really, if that is the only criticism of the place, it can’t be too bad, now can it?
