I've just come back from a jolly jaunt across the capital, and think there's room for an arrse compendium of decent boozers. To start: Seven Stars, Carey St, WC1: medieval, tiny, decent ales, exceptional scoff. Cheshire Cheese, Fleet St: 17thc, touristy, sam smith's, fantastic Victorian chop house. Haunted. Marquess of Cornwallis, Bethnal Green Rd: free cockles and mussels on weekends, topless lady boxing. Fantastic sign in Bengali in lavs dissuading locals from sh1tting on the seat.
