Pub Crawl.

Saturday morning run. From my house in east Chiswick down to the Thames.  Along the river to Hammersmith Bridge and back.  The common theme on my route was pubs…too bad it was 9:00 am and the only thing available was the old beer smell from the night before.

First stop, The Raven.  This is right by my house.  I’ve been there once…I was easily 15 (more like 20) years older than everyone else.  But not a bad place.

Then by the Carpenter’s Arms which is supposed to have great food.  Now right on the river.. the Black Lion Pub, The Old Ship W6, and finally The Dove – which looks very cool.  I must go there.

I figured out how to get my music playing along with miss lady who tells me what to do on the Couch 2 5K plan.  I was having a great time listening to the 90’s grunge rock collection.  A little Pearl Jam to get you going.  It was a love day for my love/hate relationship with London.  Until the drunk guys who were busy rummaging through the trash cans and then dumping all of the contents out also started yelling at everyone running by.

  1. Pub run! Love, this Cathlin. It’s like running by the frat houses, that old beer smell. Mmm.
    Pics are great…we have such different environs.
    Actually. Makes me miss Londons and the pubs.

  2. Yep. That’s the smell! Takes you back doesn’t it?

  3. Fun! Can we do this run when I’m in London this summer?

  4. Yes we can. Although we will go farther (plus I will live not so close to the river then). And we are definitely going to The Dove. I just saw it listed in TimeOut as one of London’s best places for al fresco dining.
