A wonderful Victorian pub - with no noise-reflecting surfaces

The Princess Louise, part of the always muzac-free Sam Smiths group, is one of the finest Victorian pubs in London. Its restoration a few years ago to its 19th-century splendour won awards – deservedly, for downstairs the several small bars all retain their original panelling, tiles and mirrors. If you want to eat you must go upstairs where the restaurant now has a new chef and markedly better food. Prices are still reasonable, however.

Cross Keys Inn, Thropton

Traditional village pub with several rooms downstairs and a lovely garden rising in terraces behind, the garden marred unfortunately by a noisy air conditioning unit. We found a spot where the noise was muffled by trees. I wished it had been a mealtime when I went through as the board said 'rabbit casserole'. No muzac throughout, by design.

Bell Inn, Purleigh, Essex

Delightful 14th century pub with no muzac. Standard menu, plus specials. Had scallops from the specials menu - delicious. House red was excellent. I was visiting a friend in the area. Wish I lived nearer so that I could go back on a regular basis!
