... and am going now, but have been doing some research on new bars and pubs to try!
I've found a fair few that sound interesting, all with easy bus/walk routes. So, next week I'll be trying:
sunday: The Harp, Covent Garden
tuesday: The Ship and Shovell, Strand
thursday: Fifty Five, Camden
friday: Cork & Bottle, Westbourne Grove
saturday: The Lamb, Bloomsbury
nothing on Monday (as I've got my liver scan at 4.15pm and I have to fast for 6 hours beforehand) or Wednesday (meeting up with M&D somewhere in town).
and all of this should be a good thing for the long run as, although I love the Chandos and Kettners, a girl really should have more than 2 bars that she likes in a city as big as London!
