Sounds like a good pub crawl to me!! You think it's possible to do them all in a day? Barking, Bexley and Croydon could be done on the next day I guess as they're further out... just an idea :)

A fiver says the Claret gets it!

Great idea Mark. I think it is all or nothing though and am not sure it can be done. If someone can prove the logistics of getting round all the pubs in a day, I'm there.

Another crawl I am keen to do is the 13 Fullers pubs along the London Marathon route - now that would be some marathon.

Wow. I've hardly been in any of those. Stonch and Tandleman have both, between them, managed to put me off the Bree Louise. I'm sure I'll give it a go at some point, though.

Can I just say that we are Croydon & Sutton Branch!

The Beer Justice said...

Dave, thanks for dropping in, now corrected.

Bailey, give it a go. It seems to be the sort of pub that divides people - usually with regard beer quality. The guvnor would of course prefer to be told if his beer is not considered up to scratch - so would the North London CAMRA branch.

Well it's decision time next Tuesday and the results have been flocking in from all corners of the ...... London!
Who will it be? Can we take the suspense? Will they put their prices up??? (Only joking!)
