Wade man dude, a London pub crawl, NOW you're talking.... thumbsup

Get a train up to the Smoke, mooch around for a bit, then dive into pub or three. A bit of nose bag, and two or three more pubs, ending up at the Prospect of Whitby. In all that time not one tip having to be worked out, and what price is displayed, is the price you pay.... shocked

NO having to sit there working out what tax is it in this area, or is it 15% we've got to leave for the waitress. Only decision will be, what beer we drink in THIS pub... grin

And as it's a pub crawl, no thinking of paying the London congestion charge, or forking out for parking indeed no thinking of WHERE to leave the bike safely. Just a case of using public transport and Shanks Pony to get around... beerchug

Might even try to get a ride on the River Thames itself lad, all we got to do is wait till the Plague is over and the All Clear sirens sound.... help

Course there might be a down side to this, and that's the next morning, waking up to someone else's head on your shoulders, your mouth feeling like a Bear's chuff, calling for Hughie & Ralf on the White telephone, and saying Never Again. Along with the Lovely Janette reading out the riot act, and telling your fortune AGAIN.... facepalm

My last London pub crawl (23 years ago now) started at noon to meet old workmates at some pub near the Monument ending eleven hours & two bottles of gin later at Aldgate. Then tube to Uxbridge & cab home.

Why gin you may ask?

Because I've never had a capacity for more than a couple or so pints but I was a happy chappy with gin.
No conversations with Ralph via the big white telephone

Ohhh! Luvly place to relax after a long red eye from the colonies to Heathrow and a ride into the city. Would love to be there to wish them birthday greetings.
A favourite place where we rested up after a big day in Rochester was The Cooper’s Arms on St. Margrets Street. We were supposed to be in town on business with the Medway Board of Education, but not much happened the next day after a late evening at Cooper’s. I looked it up and it’s likely I won’t be able to get back to Rochester and The Coopers Arms 500th anniversary in 2043 being 96 by then!
Happy memories of the Little Gem in Aylesford, but sadly it has apparently closed. Someday after this plague is beat down I want to get back to some of those historic watering holes.
Cheers and stay safe.

The Rose Revived was also quite lovely, even if we were only there for a pint. Guess it's relatively "young" tho, compared to these other ancient haunts.
