Spitalfields Pub Crawl

ELC-14800-56376-woodins-shades-298x224@2x

Saturday, April 9, 2016 – 7:30 PM

The Woodins Shades

212 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4PT

Map

It’s only six months or so since we went to this area but, as things didn’t quite go to plan last time because someone rather inconsiderately scheduled the England v Australia rugby international for the same night as our pub crawl, I thought it was about time we got back there.

We’ll be meeting at The Woodins Shades , 212 Bishopsgate, EC2M 4PT – http://www.nicholsonspubs.co.uk/thewoodinsshadesbishopsgatelondon/.

The nearest underground station is Liverpool Street – take the Bishopsgate west exit, turn left when you leave the station and cross over onto the other side of the road. You’ll find The Woodins Shades just a short walk along Bishopsgate where it meets Middlesex Street.

The plan is to move on to the Kings Stores, 14 Widegate Street, E1 7HP – http://www.metropolitanpubcompany.com/our-pubs/kings-stores/ – at around 8.45 and then Williams Ale & Cider House, 22-24 Artillery Lane, E1 7LS – http://www.metropolitanpubcompany.com/our-pubs/the-williams/ – at around 10.00, but there’s no rush as the Williams is open until midnight.

“The World’s Biggest Real-Ale Festival”

ELC-14904-56609-crosse-keys-298x224@2x

Saturday, March 19, 2016 – 7:30 PM

The Crosse Keys

9 Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 0DR

Map

Wetherspoon’s real ale festival – https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/real-ale-festival –  (the “World’s Biggest” according to them) looks like another perfect opportunity to enjoy a few drinks in the grand surroundings of The Crosse Keys, 9 Gracechurch St., EC3V 0DR – https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pubs/all-pubs/england/london/the-crosse-keys-city-of-london – once the London headquarters of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation.

They will be showing the France v. England 6 Nations Rugby international from 8pm, but it’s a huge pub and there’s easily enough space to accommodate both those who want to watch it and those who would rather avoid it!

The Crosse Keys is just a few minutes walk from Monument underground station, which is at the bottom end of Gracechurch St., but please note that there is no Circle Line service on 19th March. The District Line is operating as far east as Tower Hill, so you can get to Monument from the west but you can’t get there from the east (unless you are only coming from Tower Hill).

Another option is Bank (Central & Northern lines and DLR). Take exit 6, walk straight down Lombard St. and turn left when you reach Gracechurch St., which is the last major road before you get to the “Walkie-Talkie”.

The Crosse Keys closes at 11pm but The Folly, 41 Gracechurch St., EC3V 0BT – http://www.thefollybar.co.uk – is open until at least midnight and is on the way back to Monument station.
