Where to Go?


I have the whole day ahead of me here in London. Where shall I go? Maybe to check out one or two things? Is the Draft House cask beer any good? Is the Southampton Arms still buzzing? What about Mason and Taylor, not far at all and like the Draft House, shall we say challenged in the cask ale department, at least it was previously? That certainly could do with a check, as similar to the Draft House, I like the place immensely, but not so much the warm beer. Maybe Welsh beer at the Rake? I know. Welsh beer, but still.

Maybe out to check out Brodies at the King Bill? I could even go to Camden and have a gander at BrewDog - only kidding - you knew that - or I could just go to Clerkenwell and know I'll get good beer.

London's beer world is at my feet. Better get dressed then. Ideas welcome.  It's still a while until opening time.


Of course I need to go to Waitrose for the shopping first.

Or for a cracking pint in a friendly local there's always the Royal Oak in Tabard St.

I'd be interested to know what you think of the William IV. Fantastic building, if nothing else. (Train from Liverpool Street to Walthamstow Central and a 10 minute walk is our advice for getting there.)

Never had a problem with the cask beer at Mason and Taylor. But check their opening hours. Might by 5pm onwards.

Head out to The King William IV, then come back into town via Tap East...? Or head to The KErnel to pick up some bottles and stop off at The Dean Swift on the way back to the tube?

Thoroughly recommend Dean Swift, especially if you want to have a few Kernels
