Hello! This month's featured article is The George, NW3 2AE
, which has been done up by Spirit Pub Co to be the first in a new premium brand. It sure is pretty posh, with blonde wood panelling and light from big open windows at the front and rear. That said, the food is overpriced and my burger was a bit disappointing. Still, there you go.
Lots of new additions, the first two in the Kilburn area. From there we have Barraco
, a Brazilian restaurant, and The Carlton Tavern
, an old man pub on the Maida Vale end. From Greenwich, there's Vietnam Oriental Cuisine
, which despite the name is mainly Chinese. Finally, Rose Vegetarian
in Kingsbury, which perhaps won't get you rushing out to visit Kingsbury, but if you're in the area, seems as good a bet as any.
Significant update to the entry for The Moon Under Water
in Hounslow, which despite having been in many Good Beer Guides had remained a mere stub entry in RGL. Possibly because there's not much you can really say about yet another outpost of a Wetherspoons pub of this name.
Temporary closure for The Ladywell Tavern
to do refurbishments.
Reported permanent closures are Elephant Walk
, which was a fantastic Sri Lankan place in West Hampstead, and The Red Lion
, a pub in Amersham (which by very few relevant criteria can actually be considered to be in London).
Finally, the Imperial War Museum
has (mostly) reopened.
