The Nell Gwynne Tavern

The Nell Gwynne - Saturday 1st August 2015

1-2 Bull Inn Ct, London WC2R 0NP

After heading to the Vaudeville theatre to watch The Importance of Being Earnest matinee with my wife and then grabbing a tasty burger in Byron's a few doors down, we decided we would like a nice drink to round off the afternoon. As this pub is situated only a few short yards from the theatre and restaurant we decided that this was the best choice.

It was absolutely packed to the gunnels but we were served very quickly by the efficient bar staff. I chose a tasty ale from the five on tap whilst my wife went for a more staid JD and coke after we found they would nit do sparkling wine by the glass (I can understand why, but other pubs do offer this service, so I can only assume they do not get enough requests for it to make it worth their while opening a whole bottle for one or two servings).

We managed to grab a seat after about ten minutes of standing at the bar and had a great conversation whilst we waited for when our train was due to leave from Charing Cross just down the road.

Beers drunk on this visit:

1) T.E.A. Traditional English Ale (4.2%), Hogs Back Brewery, Tongham, Surrey - a golden hoppy bitter

Visits: 1st / a few previous
