Hello, it's that time of year, time for the new Good Beer Guide and all the new pubs it brings. The category page for this book is therefore, of course, the featured article.

Before we get into that, there's one new unrelated article, which is Banh Mi Hoi-An in London's trendy Hackney, which will do you a decent noodle salad.

Now this leaves us with all the new pubs for this year, so brace yourselves:

* The Aeronaut in Acton (also a brewpub!);
* The Argyle in Clerkenwell (Hatton Garden area);
* The Black Horse in High Barnet (also a brewpub!);
* The Clarence in Mayfair;
* The Constitution in Pimlico;
* Craft Beer Co. in Brixton (ell, can't complain about the beer selection I guess);
* The Crooked Billet in Upper Clapton;
* The Crown in St Margaret's, Twickenham;
* The Elephant and Castle in Kensington;
* The Flying Pig in East Dulwich;
* The George in South Woodford;
* The Grapes in Sutton;
* The Grove in Ealing;
* The Hops and Glory in Canonbury (Essex Road);
* The Hour Glass in Brompton;
* The Huntsman and Hounds in Upminster;
* The King's Head in Tooting;
* The Leyton Technical in Leyton;
* The Lighthouse in Battersea;
* London Fields Brewery Tap Room by the park of that name in Hackney (really a brewery);
* The Lord Aberconway by Liverpool Street;
* The Misty Moon in High Barnet (ex-Spoons, obviously);
* Oaka at the Mansion House in Kennington (the Oakham Ales pub);
* The Old Bell on Fleet Street;
* The Old Loyal Britons in Greenwich;
* Old Tom's Bar under the Lamb Tavern in Leadenhall Market;
* The Pig and Whistle in Southfields;
* The Prince of Wales in Clapham;
* The Railway Bell in New Barnet;
* The Royal George by Euston Station;
* The Shortlands Tavern in Bromley;
* The Sporting Page in Chelsea;
* The Station Hotel in Hither Green;
* The White Lion in Warlingham;
* Williams Ale and Cider House in Spitalfields; and
* Woodin's Shades around the corner on Bishopshate, by Liverpool Street Station.

There are also two stub entries which will be filled out by Kake in the next week or two:
* The Door Hinge in Welling (a micro-pub!); and
* The Hare and Billet in Blackheath.

Hello again! Short update this week.

Untitled

This week's featured article is a nicely refurbished and rather nice pub out WEST called The Finborough Arms, SW10 9ED. It's out near West Brompton, but worth a visit if you're in the area. Pubgoers may recognise the landlord from his other pub, The Gunmakers Arms in Clerkenwell/Holborn.

Only one other change is a new article for Spence Bakery in North-East London's Stoke Newington, recommended for specialty bread, chaotic queuing and oversized coffee cups.

Morning all, apologies for a slightly belated blog post this week.

Our featured article is for the Bonnington Cafe in Vauxhall, which serves vegetarian and vegan food at very reasonable prices - try the Cajun-blackened tofu.

There's a new article for the Finborough Arms in West Brompton. It's run by the same dude as the Gunmakers in Clerkenwell so expect a good selection of ales and ciders, and pizzas supplied by the Firezza next door. The upstairs is a lot bigger than the Gunmakers though, they've even managed to fit a whole theatre in it.

Finally, the article for the Queen's Head in Mitcham has been updated after a recent visit, which revealed the presence of a Metallica pinball table! I would go into more detail about the roast dinners or the real ale but frankly Nothing Else Matters (sorry).

Spotted a Megadeth fruit machine in your local? Let us know in the comments and I shall selflessly venture forth and test it out...
