If anyone else is going, I would really recommend the best western Corona Hotel in Pimlico, its really central, rooms are grand (irish grand not royally grand), free papers, free internet in foyer, mens health mags, and best of all, 2 mins around the corner from Cask pub and kitchen.
Only got to Cask twice, nice tap line up, modern place, only real grumble was the Stone IPA was 3.50 for half on the menu, and when I went to order it they were charging 4.75 for it, they weren't budging either when I questioned it , and they didn't adjust the menu either the next day.
Went to Byron Burgers (chain) also, they sell a few beers too, I went for the Byron Pale ale brewed by Camden, nice if unexciting. The burgers were very nice, about £16 for burger, skinny fries and small can of beer.
Went to Oddbins on London Bridge and they had a decent selection of London Brews, I just got Kernel, Wilde Beer, Crafty Dan(brewed at a big brewery I think).
Would recommend the Imperial War Museum too, its free in, and I only got 2 out of 5 floors done in 5 hours. I had enough then. Outside the grounds of IWM I went to a blue pub on the corner called Grand Union, the burger there was also very good, and they had a few crafts also, i had a collaboration between Dogfish head and some English brewery, it was pretty watery and average "Charles Wells / Dogfish Head DNA New World IPA.
Basically thats all the info/tips I have.

hey aaron

yeah the dfh/wells collab was sadly below the standard expected of DFH bu actually better than average for wells...

I'd have stood my ground on the pricing issue, legally they have to sell it at the advertised price.

Yeah i used to think i was correct on the pricing issue, but i actually think they are right. I thinks its something to do with law of the offer, they offer to sell something at a price, you offer to pay that price, and then they decide whether to accept your offer or not..
Any legal eagles here to clear this up?

trading standards would probably beg to differ...price list must be displayed in all licensed premises and show correct prices

You are both somewhat correct. The price list must be displayed and show correct prices in a pub. I don't think you can hold a pub to sell at the price advertised though as they could claim it's a typo. Not changing the price on the menu by the next day however I think would be classed as misleading and be deemed an offence.

In the likes of a shop though the price is just an invitation. The actual contract(sale) doesn't happen until you offer to pay and the shopkeeper accepts or rejects your offer at the till. Otherwise you could go around shops switching price tags and the shop would be forced to sell to you at whatever price you place on the item.

Interesting bit here[/url:2x3eo806] (UK)

[quote:2x3eo806]The price on display, such as the price on the actual goods, the shelf edge price, the price given in an advertisement or on a website, can form part of what the law describes as 'an invitation to treat'. This means that the price given by the trader forms part of an invitation for you as a prospective buyer to make an offer to buy, which the trader is entitled to either accept or reject. You cannot insist that a trader sells anything at the marked price, whether or not the trader has made a mistake. [b:2x3eo806]However, trading standards can take action against a trader for unfair trading practices such as giving a misleading price[/b:2x3eo806][/quote:2x3eo806]
