The Sir Richard Steele, Primrose Hill
There is a good choice of beer on offer (the Timothy Taylor Landlord bitter is excellent). On Saturdays they always have at least 4 or 5 staff behind the bar, so there is no wait to get served, even when the pub is at its busiest. I have never tried the Thai food, but it looks inviting. There is an occasional Comedy Club, plus a big but unobtrusive TV screen for sports watchers.
The customers are a buzzy, friendly lot, creating a great night out; lots of fashionable young people out to see and be seen, with the added bonus(?) of one or two local characters.
Definitely one of the best pubs in London - I wish I had found it years ago.
