The Southampton ArmsThe only dedicated ale and cider house in London, the Southampton Arms sells only beers and ciders from independent UK breweries. This Kentish Town traditional boozer prides itself on simplicity, its tagline being: "10 Real Ales, 8 Real Ciders, Hot Meat in Baps, That's it". Newly refurbished and refitted for 2010, the Southampton Arms is also one of London's few pubs that has a roaring open log fire - ideal in the cold winter months. A great find.
