Soft Southern Shandy Drinkers Swift Half Pub evening?
Right. About time we had another one. There have been a couple of attempts to organise one recently, but have failed due to people failing to agree on a location, and type of drinking establishment.
So. Using the River as a rough guide, then perhaps considering the main stations for convenience of transport links, what do people reckon?
I nominate London Bridge. Very central, convenient for most, and there are quite a few nice places round about. Personally, I like Brew Wharf, as it does very good beer, has an outside seating area off the street, which makes locking bikes up a bit safer/easy to keep an eye out, and is quite relaxed and chilled out. They even do wine, for ponces.
S’just an idea. I expect there may be a heated debate around this issue, but let’s just go for a beer, eh?
Any other suggestions? Bearing in mind, no one place will ever be perfect for everyone! I’m just trying to suggest something where most will be happy with.

FWIW- I visit Ingerlund in, um second and third weeks in April. Heading for Southampton, and planning to come down east coast and return possibly via Wales and Ireland. So, if it’s around then, I could make it. Likely to be staying in Greenwich, so london bridge suits mePosted 8 years ago

Brew Wharf is pretty good – and lots of space, but last time I went there (on a Friday, about 6.30) it was closed. Went to the Rake instead, round the corner, and it was cramped, full of old men and smelt of flatulence.
On second thoughts, it could have been the last SSSD meetup…Posted 8 years agoJamieMember
I have always like the ideas of these events, especially as the weather gets better with the longer days, i.e get on the train at p’boro with the bike and have a pootle through lahndan and have a few drinks.
…but then i remember what a arse ache bikes+trains is so give up and put the xbox on instead.Posted 8 years ago
Poddy; this Saturday is fine with me, mate! You thinking of heading over this way?
Brew Wharf closed on a Friday? That’s weird. One of the busiest nights of the week.
Thursdays are normally out for me, as are Wednesdays until Easter. And every other Monday, from next week. So next week is ok, but the next one, and every other one not. Footie night.
Tuesday’s are ok! As are Fridays.Posted 8 years ago
Went to the Union in Greenwich tonight, with me mum. Had a nice steak. Not a gastro pub, just a pub what sells grub.
And bloody fantastic beer…
Flashy; had a pint of the Meantime IPA, nice. Not my taste, but a very flavoursome beer. They do some proper bloody good beers, it has to be said.Posted 8 years ago
