even if it's nothing like a real London Pub.
Can only presume the White Horse voters were all too pissed to participate.
...to call itself a proper London pub.
It's a fix! The Shepherd & Flock doesn't even get a mention.
"Its generally a pub for transients roughly divided into 3 categories; concert goers who don't want to be seen in an O'Neils, arty-farty BBC bores on their way home on a Friday, and the inevitable peppering of crack-heads and bag thiefs blowing in from the Green (this can be taken to mean the pub or the common ground opposite)."
Well it made me laugh anyway. So which category does Chappers fall into?
I’m known as Exile and I know where you live.
doesn't need catagories to fall over.
..a vituperative quote from someone who got refused entry!
To be fair to the Weld, that is nothing like an honest analysis of its demographic. However, for me, it can never be properly crowned as a real pub, because to does not have a local community aspect at its heart. It does have an excellent selection of ales, great music and good decor, but underlying this style is a sense of transience that has never made me feel truly relaxed there. As Twickers has pointed out, the Shepherd and Flock is much more like a proper pub, as is Crown and Sceptre in fact. The White Horse has a glory that will never be understood by market analysts. The Adelaide is okay, but also has a modern soullessness, as does the Goldhawk (IMHO of course).
...stained pants in the Weld.
