Aspen Tree, Collier Row
Food served all day and a reasonable drinks range (Abbot, IPA) get this place off to a decent start. A friendly atmosphere also helps. This is an 'all things to all men' sort of pub - it even has some 1-a-go guaranteed win games with a grabber picking up toys, that are usually seen in seaside arcades, for the kids. The pub is part of the Hungry Horse chain, who seems to proliferate ersatz-Harvesters in fringe suburbs. Overall, the Aspen Tree is a reasonable pub.
