The Beaconsfield, Olympia
This pub, dwarfed by its near neighbours - the imposing Blythe House and the mammoth Olympia - has a rather bleak appearance. On entering though, you'll find a slightly more welcoming pub, which does it best to keep its clientele happy. It's starting to look a bit tatty, inside and out, although it's still a stripped floors and comfy seating sort of place. The ales on the taps are kept to Cask Marque quality, the menu looks promising, if a little gastro and with Sky on the tellies, sport is a big draw here. As it's around the back of Olympia, it's not exactly the most obvious choice to have a drink if one is attending a conference or show, so give it a go if you want to avoid the crowds.
