Gallery 1

This pub crawl takes us to an area we haven’t been to for a very long time, starting at The Gallery, 1 Lupus Street, SW1V 3AS – www.thegallerypimlico.co.uk – a traditional pub dating back to the mid nineteenth century.

The Gallery is just outside Pimlico underground station – take the Bessborough Street (south) exit, turn right and you’ll see the pub about 30 yards ahead of you on the corner of Lupus Street and Aylesford Street.

The plan is to move on to the CASK Pub & Kitchen, 6 Charlwood Street, SW1V 2EE – www.caskpubandkitchen.com – at around 8.45 and then The Marquis of Westminster, 50 Warwick Way, SW1V 1RY – https://www.themarquisofwestminster.com – at around 10.00.

Seven Stars 3

This pub crawl takes us to a new area for the group, starting at The Seven Stars, 53 Carey Street, WC2A 2JB – http://www.thesevenstars1602.co.uk – a Grade II listed traditional pub tucked way just behind the Royal Courts Of Justice. It dates back to 1602 which some claim makes it the oldest surviving pub in London. There is a bit of (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) history at – http://www.thesevenstars1602.co.uk/index.php/about

The nearest underground station is Chancery Lane, but Holborn and Temple are not much farther away. City Thameslink station might suit those who can get there by National Rail.

The plan is to move on to Ye Old White Horse, 2 St. Clement’s Lane, WC2A 2HA – http://www.yeoldwhitehorse.co.uk – at around 8.45 (although anyone who wants to watch the Champions League final could get there earlier and we’ll catch you up) and then The Ship Tavern, 12 Gate Street, WC2A 3HP – http://www.theshiptavern.co.uk – at around 10.00.

The Ship Tavern is open until midnight and that’ll be the last stop for the event, but the various late-night haunts at the top end of Covent Garden are within easy walking distance for those that want to stay out later.

The Ledger Building, Canary Wharf

The Ledger Building

4 Hertsmere Road, London, E14 4AL

Ledger Building

This event takes us to part of Canary Wharf we haven’t been to before.

The Ledger Building, 4 Hertsmere Road, E14 4AL – https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pubs/all-pubs/england/london/the-ledger-building-docklands – so-called because it used to house the ledgers for the West India Docks, is one of Wetherspoon’s flagship conversions. It has an attractive beer garden, so that’s where we’ll be if the weather’s fine.

The Ledger Building is only 3-4 minutes walk from West India Quay Docklands Light Railway station. As you leave the station, look for two large cranes and, from there, it’s about 350 yards in a pretty much straight line, past a footbridge on your left and a row of restaurants and bars on your right. You’ll find the pub just beyond The Museum of London Docklands. Westferry and Poplar stations are also nearby but the walk is not quite so straightforward.

The nearest underground station is Canary Wharf, which is about 10 minutes walk away. Leave the station by the main exit (at the back of the train if you’re coming from Central London or the front of the train if you’re coming from East London), turn right, cross over a square with several clocks on poles (you’ll see what I mean when you get there) and climb the stairs on the far side. Turn left at the top of the stairs, walk past Canary Wharf DLR station and, when you reach Cabot Square, turn right. Walk over to the far side of the square and then over the footbridge to West India Quay, turn left and you’ll find the pub around 200 yards ahead of you, past a row of restaurants and bars on your right and just beyond the Museum Of London Docklands.

For anyone interested in the history of this area, there is a lot of information on Wetherspoon’s website – https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pub-histories/england/london/the-ledger-building-docklands

The Ledger building is open until midnight and the plan is for this to be one of our occasional one-pub events but, as ever, we may need to do things differently on the night. Other pubs in the same area include The Henry Addington, 22-28 Mackenzie Walk, E14 4PH – https://www.nicholsonspubs.co.uk/restaurants/london/thehenryaddingtoncanarywharflondon – and The Merchant, 25-27 Fisherman’s Walk, E14 4DH – http://www.themerchantcanarywharf.co.uk – so we could end up one of those.
