The weekend got off to a good start with Laura Victoria and her band at The Old Nun’s Head on Friday night – thanks guys!
Then on Saturday we had lunch in The Ivy House’s pretty garden, and on Sunday went to the Hog Eye Men‘s new Shanty and Sea Song Singaround in Borough – which was fun, though we were sorry it didn’t continue a bit longer (ended at 3pm …..)
It is tucked around the back of Guy’s and quite hard to find, what with all the building work going on round there, however Nygel’s sense of direction and the fact that he had once been there years ago saved the day 🙂
The pub appeared to be very deserted for a Sunday lunchtime, apart from those joining in the Singaround, so they must be pleased with all the new custom – albeit apparently they have told the Hog Eyes that they will only be able to continue there if people buy food.
Maybe don’t serve dried up leather-like roast beef when (having asked and been told I could have it “how I liked”) I’ve ordered medium rare then, eh, Horseshoe Inn?
Not a vast range of ales, but we were happy with the Hobgoblin ….. so happy we had several pints each ….. and had a very interesting discussion with various people after the Singaround had finished …..
Looking forward to the next one on 20 April (is on the third Sunday of the month).
