If there's money in it...

Might be in the Victoria area on Monday evening, have had two or three suggestions from my informers (read drunken old sots) so may get a chance to inspect the venues in question and, purely in the interests of the forum, sample their wares...

(Memo to self, don't get too drunk and forget where yer've bin...)

You've seen Treaders after a Bash ...

He'll forget me, again, after his 5th pint! So, 'long', no! "Meaningful', more like 'meaningless'!

Nah, Goudie saw me during a Bash - you saw me after the bash - and some days later as I recall - before full cranial connectivity had reasserted itself - if indeed it ever has...

I shall be sampling a pint with me breakfast at Victoria tomorrow, but in one of the Woodenspoons. At 7:30am.

(Day trip to Swanage on the "Swanage Belle", a chuff chuff service...) Mmmm, Red Lion at Swanage and their famous cider menu... Hic

I was about to post that the bash could be combined with this, but I see that it (not the bash, the other thing) has been postponed until March.

I am still a ?? Mrs SSK is poorly at the mo and I want to be sure she can do without me for a couple of days. Still very much want to come along though.

the old shades off trafalgar sq; or salisbury; or red lion

Old Shades is easy to find; long bar; tiled floor; food.

or the Salisbury, room towards the back and a snug; food; St Martin's Lane.

or very snug Red Lion off Jermyn St and St James's Sq in Duke of York St


The last named is maybe a tad bijou but the other two are Charing X/Leicester Sq.

Where is Ozexpat when you need him?

Our pub had that je ne sais wossit though.

May I suggest the Gunmakers in Marylebone. Best local I had for years and the food is excellent.

May I also suggest using this site to find a pint in future. Very helpful!

Of course we could always go to the site of the F4 TDPU*, just off Trafalgar Square, in Whitehall. The pub is an old Banking Hall, the "Sun and Moon and some Stars and some Beer" or something . . .

Next to the Whitehall Theatre, but I can never remember its name, just the route to and from. You can tell I wasn't much cop as a navigator, can't you?

Always got home, though . . . .

* - when the wheels were fed up with "NATO beer calls" that subsided into piano wrecking, hangar fires and all sorts of mayhem, they were banned! Replaced by the "TDPU" which of course stood for "Tactical Discussions and Procedures Update" or . . . .

goudie, give us a steer!

It's your call. I suggest as few steps from Victoria as possible. It's the least we can do to show respect for the old pub. Treaders volunteered to do a recce.

I think we should stick to the Victoria station vicinity.

Greencoat Boy - London - Taylor Walker

This one looks promising

Also on Google Earth

I agree Goudie on Victoria.

The Colonies [non Aussie Variety] 25 Wilfred Street, Victoria, London, SW1E 6PR

Nicely tucked away and close to the scene of the crime. No oiks. Johnfairr and will change all that [Chorus: We've been thrown out of better pubs than this..."]. Any trouble and well add Vitamin Gee.

Just a thought, and I know the title of this thread is 'London Bash' but as the London venues suggested don't seem to be available, and I suspect that quite a few might be coming from out of London, specifically from south of the metropolis, what about somewhere else? Guildford, for example, has good rail connections from the SW and SE, and London itself, and plenty of 'hostelries' of quality, not to mention some real dives!

(There is of course a certain amount of self-interest in this as I am thinking of coming but really do not like London.)

I can suggest a venue near Victoria where I have spent some pleasant evenings, it's called Boisdale and is at 13-15 Eccleston Street, Belgravia, London, SW1W 9LX. It has a good restaurant, a bar, and a roof bar (covered).

I think we should stick with London, and Victoria seems as good a place as any....in any case from what I've heard treads will need a fairly direct route to Croydon.... no offence mate.

Having said all that, I don't know the smoke that well, so have nowhere to suggest...

No offence taken, it was just a thought which I felt was worth airing.
