Good....I'm looking for an SE1 (or close) pub open on Christmas night to go to after this:
Saturday 25th December: Deserted London ride. Meet 10am Cutty Sark Gardens/11am Southwark Needle - south end of London Bridge. A slow all day meander. West out to Putney along the south bank then back north, through the parks and up to good value late lunch in Edgware Road that caters for all diets. Pub later. Barry 07905 889 005.
Just thought I would drag this up from last year - it is the first time I shall spend Christmas in London and places to take the family may potentially be needed (I am making a list of ideas just in case a world war breaks out in SE1). If anyone has heard of anywhere that will be open on Christmas Eve/Day, it would be much appreciated!
Christmas Day pub opening (of the pubs I could be bothered to ring):
Hartley: Not opening
Garrison: Not opening
Woolpack: Not opening (James if you are reading this you have the wrong phone number for the Woolpack - it should bew 7357 9269)
The George TBR: 12-3pm
Royal Oak: Not opening
Southwark Cyclists are doing our sofa-antidote 25/12 ride again....all very welcome.......120 turned up last year...all shapes and sizes...wonderful mix....it's a slow, comfortable one that's paced for all and aims to be sociable. We'll meander west for a refresher at The Duke's Head on the Putney riviera, then up to Edgware Road for lunch..then to that fabled pub that must be open somewhere centrallish. A pint to whoever tracks it down.
No booking or fees involved, just turn up. (And we've at least 2 rides before then).
Sunday 25th December: 2512 ride. Meet 10am Cutty Sark Gardens or 11am Southwark Needle (south end of London Bridge) for a slow sociable exploring ride round central London ending up with a late lunch in a good-value Edgware Road cafe that caters for veggies and vegans too. Optional extension and pub after. Barry 07905 889 005.
