Mine's a pint

Don't know about you, but I'm ready for a pint. This shot is in my local, The Nightingale in Wanstead, and well does it deserve its rating of close to 10.

When pubs started - when ale was safer to drink in London than water - they were "Public Houses", private houses where a room or two was given over to the public as a drinking den. The posh bit - the Saloon Bar - was the best room, or saloon.

Cheers, folks!

Cheers to you Ham. Haven't they extended the pub hours now in England? Does that mean more drunk people in the Tube? (Sorry, couldn't resist!). Great photo though.

Hey, Eric, how's the snow?

And no, the licensing hours extension makes no difference to the Tube, because the Tube stops running soon after (what was) "last orders" anyway. Where do you think I am, Paris?

I like this shot a lot too! My elbow can almost feel that counter.
