Fred's Top Picks
My 'Top Picks' are those pubs I always make an effort to visit when I am in London. I have a slight bias towards British cask beers because they are hard for me to find at home, but I don't limit myself to that. There are a few 'sentimental favorites' in my list but I think you will enjoy them.

These are pubs I very much enjoyed but they are just a hair below the level of a "Top Pick" or I need another visit or two to confirm that they are worth a "Top Pick."
