Some London pubs from my London Correspondent

How about some pubs to make life interesting? What would London be like without a few lovely pubs? The locals love them, certainly, and during the fine weather the young people stand around in large bunches outside the pubs after work and before they go home. They are very noisy places, but there is a great buzz about them, and many have lovely hanging baskets and flowers along their fronts, so they are very colourful as well.

  • The Hung, Drawn and Quartered. I cannot tell you about the interior of this but I could not resist the name. I hope you can read the inscription by Samuel Pepys on the board.

  • The Wheatsheaf in Fitzrovia. Goerge Orwell and Dylan Thomas drank here.

  1. Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Ye Olde Mitre Inn and The Jerusalem Tavern are my favourites. All very old indeed and incredibly atmospheric. I always recommend them to any visitor to London.

      SIGH That’s the problem with blogs — they show you things that you want to visit/cook/make/read/etc! 😉 of course it is also what we love about them!

        Exactly. The hard part is when you get jerked back into reality and realise that in the real world, the dishes don’t wash themselves. 😉
