I met my friend Dave in here after work to start a little pub crawl in the area. I thought it might be quiet here – it wasn’t.

Possibly the shortest time I've spent in a pub and still drunk my beer - and not because it was a bad pub, it wasn't, it was really quite nice. I was in a hurry see, gotta see a man about a dog, see (I was in London and getting into character). Ultimately I shouldn't have bothered rushing as the man and his fictitious dog wandered off. Oh well.
