Should we post our 'latest' pics up somewhere, so we can all recognise each other? Obviously I'm going to have to replace my Robert Redford c1970 image, but hey, sacrifices must be made ... Laughing

A dump is still a dump, no matter how much you enjoy going there.

Actually S., I just remembered: up the road from Camden, at Chalk Farm (about one tube stop away) was a restaurant from the Belgo restaurant chain. Maybe should check if it is still there. Had Belgian food and beers, which was nice.

Comments about the World's End pub (and bear in mind it's going to be Saturday night):

http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/show.shtml/25

Quote :
Went there last night - nice layout, loads of room to move but not too much room to actually sit down and that was at 6:30pm on a Saturday ... but saddest of all was the very high prices - £3.20p for a 1 Pint glass of Lemonade - I was expecting to pay about £2 so £3.20p was a bit of a shocking price which literally encourages people to buy alcohol because at those kinds of prices you might as well do.

and

Quote :
This place is madness!

There are more tattoos and piercings than you can shake a stick at, and thatís just the women!

It takes an age to be served and when you are the pint is thrust in your general direction and slopped on the bar. No airs and graces needed in here. The tourists look on in amazement supping on there Ĺ pint of warm beer whilst there passport is stolen by some thieving scumbag.

You would think that this is a scathing review, but this is how the pub is purposely run and the owners seem proud of this fact. I think that it is meant to be a cool pub by not being cool Ė The Titty Twister of the lower leagues.

Not one for me Iím afraid, even back in the 90s when I was a little more adventurous.

It is popular with (young) foreigners and students, however.

I know of a kebab shop in camden, that hides an exciting secret. I cant tell you the details obviously but i went there with an old friend on a night out and he talked to the guy behind the counter and he took us past this door that looked like a broom cupboard or something and in there there were some old guys playing jazz and a few girls serving drinks! Camden has more than meets the eye!

To be fair, if I was 16-22 still and had never lived in the city, i might have thought it was cool too. However, there's a ton of great pubs all over, just not the most obvious ones. I guess this is easy to meet for several people. Maybe you, me, Steve, Ralf and your other 'arf can meet somewhere else first, after you do your tourist thing.

Aha ... well be nice to see you in the flesh, mate, if you can. I'm getting special dispensation (lol).

edit: here is the website for Belgo Noord, which is a bar/restaurant one stop from Camden:

Umm, this thread appears to have lost it's intention as the Saturday night is getting chatted about now.

Can we confirm that everyone who's making the FRIDAY night that they are ok to make it to London Bridge Station. As to where we go after that, I'm happy to wander aimlessly to find somewhere or to suggest places, but at least with London Bridge we are fairly central to travel around the place.

Yes...thread derailed by lack of understanding... Razz

Ryanka and myself will be able to meet you on friday evening Phil so no problem there. London Bridge Station is fine for us to meet at.

I can usually manage to find a place to chill out and have some nice pub grub and a couple of pints no matter where i am so not to worry Wink

I can abandon site at 4:30pm ish a quick look at multimap tells me I'm 2.50 hours from London, my brain tells me trying to park my pick-up in London is impossible, my brain also tells me I have no idea where I could park and/or ride.

Uhm its not going to happen for me is it Sad

It's do-able, you just need to pick a tube station that's in zone 4, 5 or 6 that you can get to the centre of London easily from and you'll be fine.
On the other hand, South-East London (the London Bridge and Bermondsey areas) are fairly close to the centre and not too bad for parking.

I would drive to an out-of-London station where you can park (leave the car/pickup overnight) and take a train in. Would suggest you stayed in London overnight in that case (crash at a friends, on a floor? I shall be staying with my friend Steve and his wife over in west London, he plays on SSL too)

Can't overcharge some Vodafone sap of a customer and pay for coming over that way?

From a good friend of mine currently in the city: The best pubs in London

Maida Vale
The Warrington (taken over by that Ramsay fellow, but still serving a mean pint in the beautiful bar area beneath the restaurant
www.gordonramsay.com/thewarrington

The nearby Prince Alfred with its wood panelled cubbie holes that project from the bar like the spokes of a wheel
http://www.pubs.com/pub_details.cfm?ID=225

Hampstead/Belsize Park
The Washington (one of the most beautifully designed pubs in London, after the Warrington)
http://www.fancyapint.com/pubs/pub1436.html

The Roebuck (Youngs pub with ideas above its station)
http://www.roebuckhampstead.co.uk/

The Magdala (where Ruth Ellis fired the fatal shots)
http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/11/11782/Magdala/Hampstead

Clerkenwell
The Coach & Horses (gastroporn)
http://www.thecoachandhorses.com/

East End boozers
The Prince Arthur (Martin Amis probably swans about in here)
http://www.theprincearthurlondonfields.com/

The Approach Tavern (art and gangsters)
http://www.timeout.com/london/bars/reviews/13110.html

The Royal Inn on the Park (good boozer with nice food)
http://www.fancyapint.com/pubs/pub95.html

The Empress of India (it's really a restaurant for people with more money than us, but worth a drink at the bar or pressing your face up against the glass and scaring the diners - it's beautiful inside)

Just a quick note, incase you get confused as to where to go at London Bridge, the place I was suggesting is by the ticket gates for the high-end number platforms (8-16 iirc).

If you're going to be in the London Bridge area on firday at 18:00 - I will be done with work by then and know a pretty decent place just outside the tube station called the Shunt Vault.

***It is far from a traditional pub***

Now be warned, it is a club set in the under tunnels of the city with a real medieval dungeon feel. The place in a haunt for artists and hosts many different Expeditions.

website: http://www.shunt.co.uk/

have a look at the photo photo gallery. This place is dirty, damp, cheap and great fun.
They have a broken down icecream van inside the place with a table on the roof and an old piano for the customer's enjoyment.

This may not be your thing, though. but i would reccomend it.
PM me for my number if you want to arrange anything.
