Real Ale in London?
January 13, 2010 11:34 AM   Subscribe

Other than CAMRA's guide, is there a listing or website that covers pubs serving real ale in London and surrounding areas?

Unfortunately, I don't know exactly where I'll be staying at the moment. I suppose I can pick up a Good Beer Guide in the airport when I get there but I was hoping for something beforehand. I have as yet to find a web listing that has more than a few pubs listed and I'm sure there has to be plenty.

Best answer: Take a look through ratebeer's London listing. Each establishment's page has a check mark for Real Ale. I haven't figured out a way to search for only Real Ale-serving establishments.

Best answer: The search on lets you select real ale pubs as an option.

Here's a search for real ale pubs in London rated at 8/10 or above by users.

Best answer: I've found pub reviews at Beer in the Evening (link goes to their London pub guide) and BeerAdvocate (link goes to their London beer guide). When I was in London last I think I went to 6 different random pubs, every one of which had real ale (I think), even in Heathrow.

The CAMRA guide is available as a download for sat-nav:
None of the reviews, opening times, food available that you get with the book, just POI files.

Best answer: See also the London Beer Map.
