Soho – 12 Jun 2009
A fabulous summer evening crawl weaving in and out of famous and infamous haunts in the very heart of London.  We started in the Dog and Duck – “I’m sure we had 2 pints here as about 12 of us gathered for the crawl…!” recalls Jules with slight exaggeration.  Next the Ship on Wardour Street, which has a great interior (although we were outside near the entrance to a trendy Soho hotel) and I read somewhrere this is the only Fullers pub in Soho.  This was follwed by The Endurance featuring stuffed animals around the walls including a bear in the corner…!  Triv inlcuded the Trident recording studio on St Anne’s Court where Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust, Transformer and several tracks by The Beatles including Hey Jude, not to mention the street in “Whats the Story, Morning Glory” (Berwick Street).
Next the Star and Garter on Poland Street after listening to the story of John Snow, former newsreader (not really…!) turned local physician who in 1854 made the connection between Cholera and water supply and removed the handle from the water pump in Broadwick St.  Then onto Glasshouse Stores and the bar billiards table in the back room, that we never played on.
Last but not least the Old Coffeehouse – Full of old pub mirrors – on reflection, a perfect end to the night!
