Holly Bush, Hampstead, London

Timeless pub tucked away in the atmospheric, narrow streets west of Hampstead High Street. Packed on a Saturday evening with bohemian and beautiful drinkers, the lively, but leisurely staff serve up a respectable range of lagers and bitters, including a smooth pint of Harveys. To soak up the beer, try the simple, filling, but tasty food, such as thick slices of cold, rare beef with a potato and tomato salad. Hard to fault, the Holly Bush is everything a modern pub should be - a comfortable, stylish and buzzing meeting place with few frills, but good culinary standards. 8/10
