We love ale, great food, interesting people and culture. These are our pubs, this is our London.

Good to know we're not the only people who like to combine booze and boats. This is almost up there with the Four Thieves Boat Bar.

You might say we're obsessed with lights and lamps and, well, we couldn't really argue to be honest. Look at this new beauty at The Joker. Perfect as our customers take a scalpel to their food from the excellent Full English.

Fans of ITV's Mel & Sue thing will recognise this lamb shank special by Mama's Jerk from the show. They did it a week or so ago. You can watch it here. Or you can eat it at The Old Nun's Head.

Thinking about booking somewhere to have an event? Our own Craig took time out from writing his novel to knock out a poem to inspire you. Yep, an actual poem. Feel the culture.

In London Town, did Laines
A brace of pleasuredomes
Decree
Where the Thames, that winding river
Sings the Capital’s width
Spanning Acton, slapping Clapham, slipping Hackney
Down to a sunny sea.

So thrice the thrill on the nightly bill
At circus, music hall and tavern
That people flock from miles around
To sup sacred brews of ale and gin
And feed on godly food on platters
Meandering in bars and pleasure gardens
Bright with beauty, song and chatter

But oh! What spots for art and party
These domes of pleasure o’er brim
With sunkissed beakers of Bibendum wine
And sharing plates of edible enchantment
All you desire Laines can sate
By giving Roxy a bell on 0203 818 8818

The Four Thieves are really pushing the whole #TryJanuary thing. Today they're offering up pine needles. Admittedly in Mussel Eclade, with cream and braised shallots.

One day this new wall – that will be signed by all the performers at The Aeronaut – is going to legendary. Until then it's handy when we steal their chequebooks.

You sound have a sandwich for lunch, or you could have Laines beer battered haddock goujons with crisp gem lettuce and homemade tartar sauce in a grilled ciabatta.

You sound have a sandwich, or you could have Laines beer battered haddock goujons with crisp gem lettuce and homemade tartar sauce in a grilled ciabatta from the Four Thieves’ new lunchtime menu. Yeah, ok, that’s a sandwich too we guess. But it’s a virtually an insult to give it that title.

There are about a million better things to do that sit at home being miserable this January. Our pubs are suggesting a new one each day on their Twitter feeds.
