The Finborough Arms

A lot of care has gone into restoring this pub. Take a look, for example, at the sign hanging outside, which was re-created using a Whitbread collector's card as the original was long gone. It's that attention to detail, perhaps, which has ensured that this is the first place in London to have Tipopils permanently on tap. Tipopils is a classic German-style pils brewed in Italy, by Birrificio Italiano, to the north of Milan. It's a dry, herbal, delicate delight. There are other beers available - Lagunitas, Adnams - but the Italian pils is clearly star of the show (there's a theatre upstairs). It needs looking after and it should get that here.
