For Sloane Square (17 April 2009):

The Duke of Wellington

Fox and Hounds

The Antelope

The Star Tavern

The Talbot

Horse and Groom

Artie was in the chair for this one as we navigated some of the finest streets in the capital.  A small group headed towards Belgravia and stumbled accross a few favourites that would appear on later crawls.  The cool Young’s pub “The Antelope”‘s wooden appeal so different to the white mansions and the sequestered Star Tavern in its mews setting are both hidden gems, dwarfed by the edifices around these parts.  These pubs criss-cross a later crawl – see Belgravia to Chelsea

As Artie would contend, only six boozers in one night was a bit paltry, given recent escapades.  Back in those days we started a bit later and hung around for more than 1 beer at some pubs…. but nevertheless, one of the finest mews pubs in deepest London, the Horse and Groom, allegedly an old Beatles hang out, was a great way to round off the night.   He does like his hard to find mews pubs and the cobbled street and olde worlde frontage gives this pub a real “local” feel. 

In fact, well done for finding both mews pubs first time around with no doubling back – not easy
