the whole mint chain just went under, the one on St John's St by Smithfields is shut too. I read somewhere a while ago that there was something similar going to open in the downstairs bit of the Shakespeare pub on the corner of Southwark St and Southwark Bridge Road
, and was going to have one or two of the Mint guys involved. Not been past that way for a while so don't know if it's happened/still going to happen or not. Should be quite odd if it does, 'cos it's a pretty grim pub!
