Black LionWhile the crowds of braying rugger-buggers and pointless Sloanes swarm into the soulless sports pubs further up the Thames towards Hammersmith, the Black Lion - set a few yards back from the river - remains a haven of calm on even the most stunning summer's day. The large beer garden is partially covered, so there's no need to fear the English weather, and the interior features a calm rustic decor (two centuries ago, this building was a pig farm) and candles in the evening. As with all the pubs along this stretch of the Thames, you can get your beer (which here include some well-kept Fullers bitters) in a plastic glass and head to the green spaces by the river, where a mile-long party takes place every sunny evening. Above all, however, this is a great pub if you want to dodge the crowds.
