The Seven Stars hasn't changed a bit since I first visited some thirty years previously. Some may call it shabby but for me it sits just the right side of comfortably traditional.
I was greeted by a friendly, Irish barmaid, barrister cat with his Judge's collar and a log effect gas fire. Perfect on a chilly day.
The food board offers an interesting range and if you're feeling athletic enough to climb the stairs to the loo you'll catch a glimpse of them being cooked. I didn't eat but everything produced from the dumb waiter behind the bar looked and smelt delicious.
Beers on were Adnams Ghost Ship and Broadside, Harveys Sussex Best, Whitstable Native Bitter and Sharps Coaster. The Ghost Ship was in decent shape without being the very best I've had but that's a more interesting range than I remember from previously.
A top boozer and I'd hope that it remains unchanged for the next 30 years - at least.

An iconic back street local in an interesting part of town. As BF says below, it's a quirky establishment. The cat was occupying a seat at my table, but we agreed to ignore each other. The pub has a good feel to it, being a little scruffy but clearly well-loved. Tables are all covered in chequered oilcloth, woodwork and paint are a little the worse for wear, and the carpet has seen better days - but on the other hand, would the pub be any better for a new carpet? Perhaps they could get hold of one second hand. There were five hand pumps on the bar - see photos for the beer offering. Toilets are upstairs, but these are steep and twisty; hope that doesn't put anyone off going.

A wonderfully old school pub ,unchanged since I worked in the area in the previous millenium.The interior is small,with a traditional bar and two wings either side,with check patterned table cloths ,wood panelling and a fine selection of old brewery mirrors.The descent from the upstairs unisex loo is as perilous as I recall,and the cooking by landlady Roxy Beaujolais is terrific. There is a chalk board with about 10 dishes available,all freshly prepared and a treat.
The new cat is less assertive but I wasn't going to argue with it while it was decked out with a choristers collar,and the ale selection from 5 handpumps was also quite traditional ,namely Adnams Southwold Bitter and Broadside,Sambrooks Session,Harvey's Sussex Best and Whitstable Kentish Reserve (absolute top form).
You dont truly know London pubs unless you have visited this quirky establishment,popular with the legal profession ,it's still a joy to behold.
