If you're in London and you want a nice pub to go to, you can do much worse than to visit The Salisbury Hotel on Green Lanes in north London. I was there on Sunday night with some friends and it's a beautiful Victorian pub that has been restored to its full glory, with an excellent selection of beers. There's also lots of great little Turkish restaurants on the road, if you feel the urge for that sort of thing.
