Thanks for the input Tableview but Victoria has plenty of pubs to choose from, it's just a case of deciding which one. The Greencoat Boy, which I mentioned earlier, seems a good bet but we do have a couple of scouts who will...eventually give the nod on a particular venue.

Not from me, my visit to Victoria-area hostelries has been postponed! Drinking with the same guys in the Lake District next weekend (Lincoln City vs Barrow - I'm sitting that part out in a pub!), so will try and fix a date with them then.

Waiting for reports from Threads and/or Treads. Meanwhile if anyone else has first hand knowledge of a decent pub in the Victoria vicinity please post details

Report Part 1:

The Bag o' Nails, Buckingham Palace Road. Almost as close to Victoria Station as The Stage Door (TSD) is. Less space on the ground floor than TSD, but cosy and comfortable. Attracts tourists but they mostly go to the upstairs bar and dining room for lunch. Normal lager/Guinness/cider taps. 3 special taps for Becks Vier, Stella Black and Estrella Damm. 5 pumps for Old Golden Hen, Ubu Purity Amber, Hobgoblin, Bombardier and Young's Gold.

Menu:






Recommendation: A goer.

The Ebury, Pimlico Road. 15 min walk from Victoria Station. Shorter walk from Sloane square tube. This might have been, at one time, a pub. It is now a brasserie with all that such entails. Normal lager, Guinness/cider taps and only one pump, for London Pride. I might take my lover there for an assignation ... but not you lot.



It's in Belgravia, and it shows



The table decoration says it all.

Recommendation: A no-goer. (Treaders would never find the station afterwards, anyway! He'd end up on a National Express coach to nowhere))

Many Thanks TB. your recommendation of 'a goer' is good enough for me and I commend it to the House.

All those in favour....
On second thoughts we have Pt 2 of TB's report to consider, but it's 'game on' I would say, for the Bash!'

Well done TB, this looks excellent to me, and I support goudies support - which he may or may not be wearing on the day.

My only concern is that if any ppruners of the non-masculine sex attend, will we be able to keep them away from the treacle sponge and custard and chocolate based items available? We don't want to be held responsible for anything untoward in this direction.

BAG O' NAILS

Sounds and looks good to me. Count me in - and when I've had enough throw me out.

I resemble that remark!

This pub is only a short stagger from the station, which could be useful!

Oh! Can I come? Happens that I'll be in town that weekend.

Did I read right that you're starting at noon? Dare I ask how long you'll be propping the place up for? (I'm at a bash in the sticks until sometime in the afternoon, but have to pass through town to get to the hotel....)

You are very welcome neroliie and yes the kick-off is 12 noon. By about 5pm we are usually propping each other up.

Right! I'll see if I can get there in time to actually have a conversation before it all goes haywire....

Report Part 2:

The Buckingham Arms, Petty France. Short walk from St James Park tube.

Nice space, bigger than the Bag o'Nails, with the sun pouring through the front window and roof lights. Normal taps, with a Peroni tap, and pumps for Youngers Special, Samwells's Wandle, Bombardier, Youngers Bitter. They also sell a Greenwich-brewed, unpasteurised, bottled lager, Meantime.
Open Saturday 1200-1800.

Menu cheaper than Bag o'Nails



Recommendation: A goer. Not sure which of the Bag o'Nails and the Buckingham I prefer. Let me sleep on it.

After consideration, The Buckingham Arms. There is a more floor space for those who might wish to stand, or have to stand because tables are full.

The floor is now open for voting.

St James Park tube station. Leave station by the Palmer Street (red placemark), as there is only one exit, rather than by the tourists exits for Broadway (red pins), as that way lies confusion. If travelling from Victoria, walk along the platform towards the back of the train for Palmer Street. Travelling from Westminster walk along the platform towards the front of the train. Exit station into Palmer Street, turn right. At end of road at the Adam and Eve, turn left into Petty France. The Buckingham Arms (blue placemark) is on the left-hand side of the street opposite the entrance to the barracks, as opposed to where it is advertised on Google Maps.

If you turn up late via being lost, you will be awarded Navigator's Wings!
