Jules gathered the group for one of our earlier pub crawls near Southwark tube in The Ring – Site of a bare knuckle boxing ring and where it is reputed that the Marquess of Queensbury set down the rules of modern boxing.  following this we called in for one at the Charles Dickens, then the White Hart on Great Suffolk Street- where one crawler was joined briefly by his wife (shock, horror, damnation) for an impromptu drink.  This was followed by the Rose & Crown, an intriguing 3 storey free-standing oasis in the middle of “nowhere”, which featured on a later crawl

We finished up in the King’s Arms, a lovely old pub on Roupell Street and stayed there for a few, could have been something to do with one of the bar staff wearing a Kiss T Shirt.
 
Jules’ closing remark was “I think this really was only five pubs…  I’m sure we had two pints in at least two of the pubs 😉  Good memories of planning these nights out even if memories of the nights themselves are a bit vague…!”
