  • It's a bit of a trek

    More than 45 miles for the round trip?

  • if anyone has a suggestion for a pub that actually is East

    I’ve suggested some in the past but they got rejected for being a bit Far East.

  • Probably a bit after 7pm.
    Meeting overran, and I just avoided a local shower.

  • Not so much an Easts but a lovely West-Eastern Diwan tonight.

    The Mermaid is good, would go again. The only fly in the ointment is absolutely no bike parking. It would have been perfect in the olden days, Coach and Horses-style, because of the space at the front.

  • Yep, happy attentive bar/waiting staff, some beers I hadn't heard of, let alone tried before. Seemingly a gusty headwind all the way home with intermittent icy showery needles.

  • If this is happening tonight,
    I will have to tend my apologies,
    first Wednesday of the month is the Ruislip Residents' Association committee meeting.

  • I guess East's really is dead now.

  • The East will rise again...

  • Bread-making thread >>>>>>>>

  • Out of interest, why did it move from the good old Royal Inn on the park?

  • the smell of the nearby mainline sewer in the summer and the shit bar staff

    were my reasons

  • As 'dead' as Wests!

  • Well, with the pubs closed, there's not much one can do for the time being other than park beers with 2m between people somewhere that isn't completely overrun, but it's only as dead as people want it to be, well, when this crisis has ended.

    As mentioned several times, Easts doesn't currently have a set pub. @dbr suggested the Mermaid in Downs Road, and @mespilus and I had a lovely tête-à-tête there a few weeks ago, so we could go there again when it's open again, but we really just need somewhere where we can be without constantly moving around, and perhaps something further south, i.e. more east than north-east.

    All someone needs to say is 'I'm/we are going to be at this or that east-ish pub on this or that Wednesday, come along.' Perhaps in May?

  • @BQ may remember the full run-down of reasons, but what I seem to remember is that I think @EEI got banned from the Royal Inn, the pub had become fairly packed with people doing British Military Fitness in Victoria Park, and probably other reasons. I personally would have preferred to stay, but it became a moot point when they redeveloped the pub shortly afterwards, and while I've been back there a couple of times, now I don't like it as much as I did then.

  • Yep twas a good chat.
    Looks like it will turn out to be the last Forum f-t-f for quite some time.

  • Well, with the pubs closed, there's not much one can do for the time being other than park beers with 2m between people somewhere that isn't completely overrun,

    Controversial, in the other thread you would be burnt at the stake.

  • I remember seeing folks doing the drag strip before they put the speed bumps in... to the round about and back. Have they finally removed the LFGSS group photo from the pub? Pretty sure that was there when I was there last - a summer or two ago.
    What happened to the Chesham? Why not somewhere round LF?

  • Is it dead yet?

  • Maybe a case of suspended animation...

    Could be reanimated once this shit storm has passed!
