The Lock Tavern

If you believe some of the stuff you read on the internet, The Lock Tavern is frequented by London's most obnoxious hipsters. If you ignore the misanthropic ramblings of keyboard warriors, though, you'll discover a very decent pub which serves some excellent beer. Ales might include something from Sambrooks', East London Brewing or Twickenham while there's Camden beers on keg and some excellent bottles (including The Kernel) in the fridge. Tends to get extraordinarily busy on Friday nights, when there's a gig on. There's also a nice roof terrace.
