In Central London - don't expect to find many friendly locals in the pubs - 'cos there aren't any. They are all run by Australians and Kiwis, and frequented by tourists. The drinks are expensive and if you ask for chips they will be covered in cheese sauce even if you asked for chips without cheese sauce - Chips with cheese sauce is NOT normal. No Londoner eats this ...... I don't know who does :))

There is a particularly nice pub just along The Strand, The Coal Hole where you can get great pub grub like jacket potatoes and cheese and mushroom melts, soup, big fat burgers, and various sandwiches, for just under 6. There's a huge variety of other meals available and they also have "Edmunds Wine Bar" downstair too - but I haven't been there for a long time!
