Chancery Lane Pub Crawl

Saturday, March 4, 2017 – 7:30 PM

The Inn of Court

18 Holborn, London, EC1N 2LE

Map

This pub crawl takes us to some of the best pubs at the top end of Chancery Lane, an area we haven’t been to before as a group, starting at The Inn of Court – http://www.innofcourt.co.uk – a Fuller’s pub which is just a few yards walk from Chancery Lane underground station on the Central Line. Take exit 3 for Barnards Inn and you’ll find the pub straight ahead of you.

The plan is to move on to the Cittie of Yorke, 22 High Holborn, WC1V 6BN – https://whatpub.com/pubs/NLD/6316/cittie-of-yorke-london – at around 8.45 and then The Old Red Lion, 72 High Holborn, WC1V 6LS – https://whatpub.com/pubs/NLD/6318/old-red-lion-london – at around 10.00.

The Cittie of Yorke is one of London’s most historic pubs and offers “London’s only beer served from a wooden cask”, whilst The Old Red Lion, which claims that the body of Oliver Cromwell was hidden in the cellars back in 1658, had an interesting selection of beers when I was there recently.

Borough Market Pub Crawl

Saturday, February 18, 2017 – 7:30 PM

The Mudlark

Montague Close, London, SE1 9DA

Map

The Mudlark –http://www.nicholsonspubs.co.uk/restaurants/london/themudlarklondonbridge – is just a short walk from London Bridge station. It can be approached from a number of different directions but probably the easiest way is to take the Duke Street Hill exit from the station, cross over Duke Street Hill as if you were heading for St. Olaf House, turn left into Tooley Street and carry on walking, through the tunnel (past The London Bridge Experience on your left and the Mug House on your right), until you reach Montague Close. You’ll find the pub on the left just before you come to Southwark Cathedral.

The plan is to move on to The Rake, 14 Winchester Walk, SE1  9AG – http://www.utobeer.co.uk/the-rake/ – at around 8.45 and then The (Wheat)Sheaf, 24 Southwark Street, SE1 1TY – http://sheaf.london – at around 10.00 (not to be confused with The Wheatsheaf in Stoney Street which we’ll be passing on the way).

The Rake is a very small pub. If it’s too crowded we’ll head for The Market Porter, 9 Stoney Street, SE1 9AA instead  – http://www.markettaverns.co.uk/the_market_porter.html.

The Metropolitan Bar

Map

Wetherspoon’s “London Beer Festival” –https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pubs/events/london-beer-festival – looks like a perfect opportunity to enjoy a few drinks in the newly-refurbished surroundings of The Metropolitan Bar –https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pubs/all-pubs/england/london/the-metropolitan-bar-marylebone – named after the Metropolitan Railway, the world’s first urban underground railway. The entrance to the pub is right outside Baker Street underground station. 

The Beer Festival features Real Ales and Craft Beer from 15 London breweries – Sambrook’s, Truman’s, Portobello, By The Horns, The Cronx, Hop Stuff, Redemption, Fuller’s, East London, Southwark, Twickenham, Enfield, Wimbledon, Windsor & Eton and Reunion, so there should be something to suit most tastes.
