    fred – you can go to the captain kidd, we’ll go somewhere else. Should suit all of us nicely… 🙂

    Ill be up for it.

    Something central and easy? I dont particularly like the Porterhouse on Maiden lane but it’s big and serves okish beer.

    I’m afraid my knowledge of decent central London pubs is very poor, so I’m happy to go with the consensus*.

    * now that’d be a novelty for STW.

    Yeah, and you’ll sit there bored, like you did last time… 🙂

    I never remember the names of good pubs I visit, or even where they are, exactly!

    Somewhere with secure bike locking facilities/can keep an eye on the bikes from inside, type place would be nice.

    Anywhere with an off-street beer garden?

    London Bridge area good for most people? Some nice places round there.

    oh blimey, they’re all dives in london bridge way.

    I suggest gordons at embankment, as bikes can be chained to the railings and we can stand outside.

    If I bring the bike in I’ll stay for a couple, if not I’ll probably nab a quick one and head home to watch hollyoaks on E4.

    PK, there’s no pleasing you, is there?

    Let’s find somewhere with a ‘trendy whine bar’ opposite, so we can laugh and point at Pk, and call him a ponce…

    Gordons? Are you having a laugh? You’re not serious, are you?

    I propose London Bridge, as it’s easy for many to get home from. Plus, there’s a couple of places on the river. And for nice beer, Brew Wharf does Meantime beers.

    So – did anyone make their mind up about this?
    Unless its snowing real bad I might wander up on the pink Brompton as the other half will be off in Aberdeen.

    Possibly. I may well still be in London Town at that point…

    problem with gordons is it is wine only, which the proles may find undigestible.

    Why not the ship and shovel

    – very close to gordons, has space outside and railings for locking bikes too, and most impotantly the beer isnt too bad – they sell Hall & Woodhouse

    and there’s something right about STW drinking “Badger” ale.

    BTW I’ll be there I should think
