Sal's Bar, Neasden
Sal's Bar is a comfortable pub which covers the essentials well for its older Irish clientele. Racing on the big screen, wall-to-wall Guinness and a friendly atmosphere prevailed when we dropped by. Red Artexed walls and a varnished pine bar (with mounted hurling stick) gives the place the air of a 1970s lounge bar in Offaly. Par for the course in Neasden, then, but Sal's is decent enough in its own right. It was much livelier than Finnegans Wake next door too, when we visited.
