Friday 13th July - London
I can only go on the evidence.....and if the cap fits???? I aint sayin nuffin more guv
I don't think you need to! The prosecution rests!
edit - wrong thread. doh
Was there any research done on a venue for the Pirate Summer Social? Or is anyone free this Friday to check some hostelries?
Research is underway I believe
It will be, as pervious posts have suggested, London Bridge / Southbank area.
I have spoken to a couple of places down there and am waiting for their response. I'll let you know asap, but if you're thinking hotels, seriously, anywhere in the centre of town will do. It's not actually that big a place
Wasn't planning on sleeping Holly, that there London has bars that stay open for a lot longer than our sleepy village pubs
Word of warning if anyone is looking for hotels - london seems to be hosting a large sports day around july/august and all the hotels and B&Bs seem to be raising their prices inline with the Ritz.
We've got a few tables (and I mean only a few) reserved at the Anchor, Bankside, Southwark, upstairs, from 6pm on the 13th.
Other places I've tried want to charge us a room hire plus a stupid minimum food order so this is as good as it gets in London this summer! I spoke to the manager at the Old Thameside and to be frank, he was a total cock, so we're not gracing him with our presence...
We are at liberty to use the entire place too, just I have a few tables (with chairs) reserved for the elderly among us to take the weight off our feet.
The booking is in my name, but I will be sure to send a sherpa along in advance to secure our spot (I don't finish work til 6, so unfortunately you'll have to be patient for my arrival )
Excellent Holly, cheers, but for us country bumpkins that get scared in the big city, it is this place isn't it??
Yep thats the one!
Good work Holly, and it's got a chippy in the pub how cool is that (I know.... I'm easily pleased!)
The Anchor, Bankside, Southwark, upstairs, from 6pm on the 13th
Would love to be there but as i was away at Outlaw and i have a stag do this weekend there is no way i could get another pass out for a piss up
I might even manage a drink at this one
take it steady meldy, why dont you aim for a smile at this one and work you way up towards a drink at some point in the future?
Meldy.... we'll show him!
GB .. Holly has already mentioned that swim, not sure if I would be capable after a night on the beer but I might be persuaded !!!
