Welcome back to another week with RGL

Crate, Hackney Wick, E9

This week's featured article is Crate, E9 5EN, a microbrewery and pizzeria alongside the River Lea or Lee canal, in increasingly-trendy post-industrial Hackney Wick. The pizzas are good and the beer is decent. It was good over summer when you could sit outside on the banks of the Lea.

There are two new articles this week. The first is for a refurbished gastropub in Kentish Town, The Grafton, well worth a visit if you're in the area, though it doesn't quite match the extensive ale selection of nearby Tapping the Admiral. The other new entry is for chain restaurant Giraffe in Kensington, a chain known for being particularly child-friendly.

Finally, our reported closure is Dos Tias tapas restaurant in Deptford, which I think probably closed a few years ago, but nevertheless now confirmed.

Atlas, Earl's Court, SW6

This week's featured article is a ivy-covered pub in West Brompton, The Atlas, SW6 1RX. It's many years since it's been in the Good Beer Guide, but it's decent.

Two new additions are Crate, a brewpub and pizzeria in a sort of West Coast US style, out in a former industrial unit of Hackney Wick; and Court Cafe, a greasy spoon by Elephant & Castle.

We've now marked Lemon Monkey in Stoke Newington as closed, because it was replaced by the Monkey Bar some time ago. It still serves cake and coffee for the daytime crowd, so it's apparently not completely different.

Also, an online commenter points out that The Castle pub in Battersea is actually still open, despite closure earlier this year due to being sold to developers. It's still under threat though, so good luck to them!
